Tree Planting

I went a little crazy yesterday and bought a much of good sized trees for my house. We built it in 2010 but have yet to landscape, so I have a blank canvas.

Anyway, I bought 15 trees or so and need to get them in the ground.

Any advice in how the best way to do this is. I'm not going to use a shovel and do it by hand. What do i need to rent or how expensive is it to have it done?

Thanks.

digging and planting stuff is a major pain in the butt

bigger stuff is multiple person job

hire a company that has all the equipment and people ... save yourself a huge headache

Fifteen trees could cause climate change. Watch for the arrival of non-native species.

Hire a pro, this will give the trees a better chance to live . It goes way beyond digging a hole. Those big ones especially. However, if your a handy guy and strong in the back, it's a great project to tackle. 15 trees is a bunch.

Sounds like you'll have a nice yard come next fall.

Yeah I'm pretty stoked.

We have a big odd-shapped trapezoid back yard. So I have plenty of space to play with, probably close to 3/4 of a acre. My dogs are going to love it.

15 maples and oaks are going to drop a ton of vegetation every fall and spring too. I like trees, but I wish I had considered this 15 years ago. At least 3 or 4 weekends a year are spent dealing with the maintenance.

How big are they?

I plant quite a few trees...and will be planting a lot more next year.

I over-dig the hole and mix in some extra soil that is turned with some seasoned cattle lot manure. If your fertilizer is "too hot"....it will burn the trees and kill them. The other method I've used...and it works great on gardens....is to mix up some turd pudding....and pour some in the hole before planting the tree or a little around the top after completion of the planting.

if animals are a concern, get some wrap to put on the base about 2-3' up.
