To ensure proper growth and maximum production, there are two common mistakes many people make, that you want to keep from happening to your trees. 1. When removing a tree from a pot do NOT pull trees out by the trunk, this can cause root damage. Carefully cut pot into 4 sections with a utility knife, open up the pot and remove the tree! 2. Don't plant your trees to deep, this will not only stunt growth but can be fatal to the tree. Plant them even with the dirt in the pot or no more than half an inch above the ground.
