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.

Pecan trees need water and sun in order to thrive. Be sure to plant in deep, moist, and well-drained soil. During the tree's first growing season, be sure to water regularly, about a gallon of water a day, (though you do not need to water every day in order to accomplish this). Prune pecan trees in the winter, making sure to prune lower hanging branches to encourage upward and lateral growth.

Quality trees at a good price.

Plant Me Green may not be the cheapest, but they are among the best. Trees always arrive well packed and in great shape. Survival rate of trees has been much better than other nurseries, which makes their trees a better value in the long run.

Bare-root plants in a pot

I have ordered from Plant Me Green several times before, and have always received what was advertised and was satisfied with what I received. The four "potted" pecan trees I ordered arrived looking fine; until I tried to plant them. When removing the first two trees from the pot, the potting "soil" (almost completely pine bark mulch) completely fell away from the roots. I was left with basically a bare-root tree in July. This happened with the first two trees. I didn't even attempt to plant the other two out of fear the same would happen to the others. Needless to say, both replanted trees are doing poorly and are already dropping leaves and appear on their way to dying despite my best efforts. I expected better. I've been planting and landscaping for over 20 years. Not happy. Just wasted over $100.
