What are the best ways to care for my new baby loblolly pine trees? Thank you!
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.
