Avoid tree planting problems

Problem: This tree was planted with the burlap bag intact AND the string still around it’s trunk. The tree continued for several years to grow past the string, and has become choked at the same time, limiting the nutrient travel between roots and leaves. I

t grew in this fashion for several years unbeknownst to the owners. Just this year the leaves began to shrivel and small twigs died. The tree will most likely die.

Solution: Plant the tree correctly at the beginning. REMOVE all burlap, all strings, all cages, all pots. Do not over mulch or overwater.
