Choose an Appropriate Tree

Select a tree that is appropriate for the climate and soil in your area, as well as the amount of light and space it will have. Consider how big the tree can get before you decide to buy one and make sure it is suitable for its intended location.

Dig a Proper Hole

The hole should be three times as wide as the root ball and just as deep, so that the roots have enough room to spread out and grow. Make sure there are no rocks or other obstacles in the hole that could impede root growth.

Provide Adequate Water

Before planting, water the tree thoroughly and make sure it is well hydrated when you place it in the ground. As the tree begins to grow, continue to water it regularly. It’s important to avoid over-watering as this can lead to root rot.
