Little help please....

I plantes a Magnolia that i dug up from the woods about
1.5 Month"s ago....

I live in a rural area where I have permission to get any
tree I desire 2 have....

My question is ....all the leaves have fallen off....Is this
ok for a newly planted wild Magnolia?

I watered it when I first planted it....any thing I should
be concerned about???

Also I am also thinking about some beautiful Palm tree's
also that I have seen in the woods...Or should I wait til
spring?

Your help is appreciated.......
:confused:

I do not feel that I did? The leaves stayed on the tree for several weeks.....

Then we had a few bad winds + deep freezes????

Magnolias like a moist-well drained, slightly acidic soil. They can not be over watered or can not go through periods of drought. It is best if the tree was placed in sun-part shade. If the tree was placed in a polluted enviornment it will do poorly and possibly die. It is best to transplant in late winter- early spring on magnolias. I would do a scratch test on the bark with a knife. If it is still green than the tree may have a chance. If brown then you might need to start over. Also probe the soil to see if it is to wet or dry. Good luck.
