The right arboriculture decisions you make for your tree in the first few years can reduce transplant stress and create conditions that encourage strong growth. In the first 2-3 years, a new tree is established, which has a distinctive root anchor in the soil for years. Roots do not grow very fast, and it is a healthy root development that creates or breaks a transition from the nursery to the landscape.
Trees need regular, deep watering for at least the first 2-3 years of their growth. Otherwise, your tree may not reach its full potential size, making it more susceptible to pests, disease and death. All plants, especially trees planted in the last three years, need regular water and care to thrive.
Make sure your tree receives at least 25 gallons of water per week, which equates to 1.5 inches of rainfall. Install a trunk protector at the base of the tree to keep the nutrients and water of the tree in the system without cutting.
Trim trees to prevent safety risks such as low branches exposed to storm damage, sidewalks and driveways. Make sure that the poles do not rub against the trunk or branches, which can cause wounds that can lead to infection or death of trees. You can test whether the stakes are ready to be removed by grabbing and shaking the tree from the bottom of the trunk.
