STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

Found in the wild along streams and in swampy soils, swamp white oak should be grown in full sun to partial shade on acid soils, showing severe chlorosis on alkaline soils. They tolerate soil compaction, drought and some salt exposure. They should be tried more often in urban areas. Swamp white oak grows best in full sun in moist to wet, deep, acidic soils. Development of a 2-layer root system allows it to grow well in areas that are flooded in spring but markedly dry in summer. Young trees of swamp white oak are tolerant of light shade but become more characteristic of full sun with maturity.
Beautiful start. Arrived in great condition. Is looking good so far even with our little drought and weeks of 90s. Cant wait to see it take off this fall and next spring.
The box the trees were in was strong. They were planted and growing very well! Thanks!
Ordered Swamp white oak in good condition with no leaf loss. It has now been two weeks and appears to be holding up.
Our order of 4 oak trees (varied types) arrived in perfect condition. They had their leaves intact and no breakage. The timing was good and the packaging made it easy to get them in the ground. I recommend Plant Me Green.
Received my trees and they arrived quick and looked strong ... thanks for ensuring they were boxes properly for shipment.. now. I just watch them grow...
