Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Pin Oak Tree Seedlings
Little is required in the way of care for the Pin Oak Seedlings.
An application of balanced fertilizer in the early spring during the first few years of life will help promote slightly faster growth and deeper roots, but this will occur even without the addition of fertilizer. Pruning the lower branches while the tree is young may be needed, depending on the growing location. The smaller branches tend to droop, while not at all harmful to the tree, it makes walking or mowing under it difficult. The removal of lower limbs early in the tree’s life will keep the tree aesthetically pleasing and provide plenty of headroom under its massive canopy. Pin oaks produce thin glossy leaves that turn brilliant shades of russet and bronze in the fall. The tiny leaves decompose quickly, so they make great additions to the compost pile or can be used as-is for garden mulch. Pin oak trees are botanically known as Quercus palustris and often referred to as small leafed red oaks.
