    Asian white Birch and Cleavland Pear trees Planted!

    They are very good size (15+ feet tall) and I live in north western NJ (zone 6). My soild is heavy clay and lots of small rocks (a true pleasure to dif through. I put some rocks in the bottom of the holes and surrounded the sides with peat moss, topsoil and the dirt I took from the hole. Topped it all off with Black cedar mulch.

    My question for the experts out there is what can I do for these trees to ensure they will be around for years? My development is former farmland so it can get windy in the winter. Please advise. I went through a decent expence for these 2 trees..

    I wouldn't have ammended the soil and I wouldn't have put rocks in the hole, but not to worry. It'll probably be fine.

    Just give the trees a thorough deep soaking once a week, maybe twice a week during the hottest summer months, throughout the first year. Even in winter, if the winter is dry.

    Good luck!

    I figured adding the rocks back in sunch heavy clay would aid drainage... I'm amazed anything grows in that garbage fill they gave us.. Any type of special fertizers I should get?
