TLDR

Check out the link above this photo. But if you found it "Too Long Didn’t Read":(TLDR??) then see below:

Here is a short bullet list on this great article for planting trees.

  • Plant trees bare-root. Wash off the soil and check the roots.
  • Plant trees appropriate for your climate and soil.
    • Not all trees you see at your local nursery are appropriate.
  • Buy the youngest tree you can
  • Plant in a hole just wide and deep enough for the roots
  • Fill the hole with the same soil that was removed.
    • No amending soil
  • No tree staking
  • Plant away from grass
  • Cover with arborist chips

It is probably time to remove the stake no these trees!
