This week, Frank Sharum shows us how to properly plant new trees.

The first step is to check if your tree's roots are circling around the soil it's currently in, or if they are growing freely.

The second step is to place the tree in it's new home in the ground, but make sure that the hole is not too deep. If the hole is too deep, the tree will be drowned by any water that goes into the hole. The tree's roots should be 1-1.5 inches above the ground.
