Tree Planting BasicsHow to Plant Trees

  1. Call before you dig.
    Contact Alberta One-Call.
  2. Handle with care. Always lift tree by the rootball.
  3. Dig a big hole. Dig a hole 2x as wide as the rootball.
  4. Plant at the right depth. The tree flare should be slightly above the ground.
  5. Backfill with good soil. Use what you dug out of the hole unless it's all clay.
  6. Top with a mulch ring. Keep it at least 5cm from the tree trunk.
