Now until Mid June is the best time to plant in Colorado


• Plant the top of the root ball slightly above ground level. The root collar must be visible one inch above final grade.

• Set root ball on solid ground and not on loose backfill in the hole; this will eliminate settling.

• Remove at least the top 1/2 of all wire and baskets from balled and burlapped trees and completely remove containers from containerized stock.

• Adding peat moss or manure to soil in the planting hole is not necessary. (Too much can cause a “potted tree” effect and restrict root growth.) Backfill hole with original soil.

• Do not fertilize at planting time.

• Optimum planting periods are from March 15 to June 15, so you’re right on time to start!
