Pay Attention to Soil Depth
Tree roots do their “grazing” near the surface of the soil, not down deep. The top two feet of the soil provides over fifty percent of the water and nutrients for good, healthy growth. Deeper roots gather some nutrients and moisture during droughts and help anchor the tree. Tree roots are lazy – they’ll feed where the eatin’ is best and the easiest. If you put a big pile of compost and fertilizer in a planting hole, the roots will simply colonize the hole and happily pig out on the convenient feast. If the goal is to naturalize a tree, don’t serve it a huge “breakfast” and then expect it to find lunch and dinner outside the planting hole all on its own. Save your compost for the vegetables.
