The best times of the year to plant landscaping trees are spring and fall. In most regions, the season's rainfall and stable temperatures (neither too cool nor too hot) promote ideal root growth before winter causes trees to go dormant. To plant, dig a hole about as deep as the root ball. Sprinkle a handful of fertilizer designed specially for trees at the bottom of the hole, then carefully place the tree inside, unwrap the roots from the tarp or burlap, and backfill the hole.
