How to Plant a Tree

Learn how to plant a tree and add its benefits to your garden with a simple, step-by-step planting guide.

Attach wooden stake
Choose a stake that will reach a third of the way up the trunk. Use a mallet to hammer it into the ground at an angle of about 45 degrees, with the top facing the prevailing wind. Attach a tree tie at the point where tree and stake meet, using a spacer to prevent them rubbing together.
