Site preparation

Trees will not reach their potential where the soil contains too little air or where soil moisture is either excessive or insufficient. You need to prepare the soil before planting to improve the conditions by:

If the area is prone to waterlogging you’ll need to consider installing drainage, or alternatively plant on an elevated mound. Excessive moisture can damage the roots, which become blackened and susceptible to disease

When you’ve prepared the area be careful not to plant too deep, which is a common cause of tree death. Look to plant at the same depth that the tree was growing in the nursery.

You may also want to consider giving newly planted trees protection from mice and rabbits.
