Now that you have your location and the perfect seedling picked out you must take care of the seedlings before planting -
Containerized tree seedlings shipped in the container give you flexibility of planting when it's convenient for you. Place the trees where they will get direct sun for part of the day. Avoid continuous hot sun. Water thoroughly as needed, generally every 1-3 days depending on weather conditions. If holding for an extended period of time (more than 3-6 weeks), elevate styroblocks a few inches on blocks to keep roots from growing into the ground. The night before planting, water the seedlings well. This gives time for excess water to drain out.
Survival rates for containerized tree seedlings are good on all sites including rough sites. However, weed control can help them off to a good start. This can be accomplished by herbicides and/or mowing and of course using weed control.
