Planting Redbud Tree
1. Dig a hole about twice the width and depth of the root ball.
2. Put the tree scale into the hole. You want your tree to be slightly above the existing ground line. Planting too deep can cause your tree to struggle and even die.
3. Fill the hole with water. Yes, even before you fill in the soil around the roots. A new tree is like a lot of water. This will help them root properly and quickly.
4. Backfill and compact the soil to remove air pockets. Do not trample the ground, as this will compact the soil, making it difficult for the tree to grow.
5. Apply a balanced slow-release fertilizer. This fertilizer is safe for new plantings and will give your tree a head start.
