Proper time and technique for planting Oriental Arbor-vitae

The ideal time to plant Oriental Arbor-vitae is early spring or fall, avoiding extreme temperatures.

Prepare a well-draining soil enriched with organic matter. Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball, place the tree, and backfill with soil.

Ensure the tree sits at the same depth as in the container.

Water thoroughly after planting and maintain consistent moisture during the initial establishment period.

Arbor-vitae prefers full sunlight, so choose a sunny location.

Minimal pruning is required for maintenance.

Dig a Hole: Ensure the planting hole is twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep.

Remove the Arbor-vitae from the Container: Gently remove the tree from its container, taking care not to disturb the roots excessively.

Position the Tree: Place the Arbor-vitae in the hole’s centre, ensuring it sits at the same depth as it did in the container.

Backfill the Hole: Fill the hole with soil, pressing it down gently as you go to eliminate air pockets.
