I have been having problems with planting pine trees and then they die - 11 to be exact in the last 3 years. Does anyone know of a fertilizer I can make up to help when I plant them? How can I then feed them through the season?

Hi Jason
This is what we did when we planted our tiny Xmas tree. Put in russet potatoes (we used about 5 or 6), then plant the pine tree on top. Water well. This worked really well and now our lil tree is huge. LOL

Planted 5 Ponderosa Pine (6 feet tall) about four weeks ago and now some of them are turning yellow.


We have had lots of rain this month, could that be the problem or do they need more watering

I need someone to confirm or deny a so called fact about pine trees. Is it true that a pine tree that has a trunk that splits off into two or more trunks is an indication of the tree growing over ledge or rock?
