Am planning on doing some planting of trees on my recently completed acreage. I would like to put in some locally grown white pine and some berry trees for the birds for the time being. Both species would be gotten from the wild and therefore native to the area. Question is, how much, how deep Do I have to dig to insure a decent success rate. Some info on soil prep would help me as well.
 I'm looking at the pine being from 4 - 6' high and the mountain ash, being that close to fruit bearing age.
Thx for all and any advise....doug

Most of your roots will be in the first 6 inches of soil at that age..all should be in the first 12. When you dig, do it while dormant. Use a pair of handsnips/loppers to clean up the cuts on the roots you cut with a shovel. This will increase root regeneration. Water water water is the key to success.
