FOUR MOST COMMON REASONS YOUNG TREES FAIL TO SURVIVE:
1 Not watering enough. Rain only counts if it rains 1” or more and only counts as one watering. New trees generally need to be watered every 2-3 days, slightly more if windy.
2 Watering too much. Water every 2-4 days depending on your soil. Not sure? Ask us.
3 Weed eater damage. Protect the bark! The bark on a tree is like human skin, it’s the first layer of defense. Don’t get too close with the weed eater. Open wounds can allow diseases and insects into the heart of the tree.
4 Insect or diseases. Keep the tree watered and fed. This goes a long way to helping it fight off attacks from insects and disease. Otherwise keep an eye on newly planted trees and treat them quickly if something is noted
