CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF YOUR TREE
Fertilization will help increase the growth and development of your tree. A healthy tree is capable of withstanding insect and disease problems better. Your trees fertilization needs are greatest during periods of active root growth in Spring and Fall.

Big Trees, Inc., offers a complete fertilization program for your landscape. Ask your salesperson for more details.

Mulch has been applied with the planting of your tree. Add 2-3 of new mulch after the first growing season. Do not mound mulch around the trunk of the tree.

Stakes should be removed after the first year. Wood stakes can be pulled out of the ground. The steel stakes have an auger on the bottom and must be turned to be removed. Remove all of the straps from around the trunk.
