1 Answer 1


Mulch around the tree frequently, and pull out any small plants growing at the base of it.
Only water if soil is dry, because overwatering is a major killer. Only prune dead or diseased branches.
To protect it from animals a plywood sunscreen can also protect it from insects.
However if you live with large animals like deers, you may need a plastic tube or chicken wire fence to protect it.

  • Can you expand on your answer? Link only answers don't add as much value to the site as a written answer.
