"Plant it yourself!"

Did you know most of our trees come in do-it-yourself sizes?
If you can dig a hole 10-20" deep and 24-40" wide you can easily plant a new tree. Just pre-dig the hole and have our delivery service transport the tree to the hole. We will stand the tree up straight and then all you need to do is remove some twine, burlap, and finish backfilling. Some trees come in plastic containers which is even easier, simply cut away the pot or gently pull off.

Don't forget the mix!

Our very own formulation contains all the necessary nutrients for newly installed plants without overstimulating top growth. All organic compost from various sources for balanced feeding without risk of burning. Our New England soil is pretty poor so we add peat moss to help with clay as well as retain moisture. Finally, we fortify the mix with microbes giving you a "living" soil amendment which increases the plants ability to absorb nutrients. Corliss Mix is like plant insurance and should always be used when planting field grown nursery stock that is in burlap. Field dug plants have most of their roots cut off and will greatly benefit with its addition at time of installation. It helps reduce stress and increases the speed at which it recovers. If you are one of the few that has good rich soil then you can skip it but for everybody else... "Don't forget the mix!"
