Tree Planting

I was mowing Friday and this one company was planting trees
It was funny to watch

I was going stop and tell them how to plant a tree right

These balls was wider then a 36'' auger that they was using They was sitting trees in the holes and if they didnt go in They would drive there mini skid over the ball to smash it in

Here is a pic of one

When I did a tree I like to have a taper hole and I like to have 6''-8'' around the tree to pack dirt in
These guys hauled all the dirt off

No cage to them burlap still on the bottom and side they only cut top off

The rate I seen 50% what they plant dies its bad Its all College kids

I don't think none of them knows what they are doing

Last year they planted some trees and they wired them to T post but the wire didn't have a hose on them to protect trees from the wire

Hope theres a warranty, because they won't last one full year planted like that! That is the worst looking tree planting Ive ever seen!

I've seen worse. I went to a house for an estimate for mulch a few years ago and they literally set the tree on the ground and added mulch around it. 3 years later it's still alive lol

Hope they used stone mulch, that bark mulch is a scam.

PS Nice grammar.
