    I have some trees that were planted last fall, the problem is that the rootballs are staying wet all the time. I'm not sure if the ground will perk or not, but was wondering if there is anything that I could do besides moving them that would help? I've read somewhere about using a 2in. pipe somehow to relieve this, but I can't remember where I saw that at. Please ring in if you have any ideas. Thanks

    What type of soil are the trees planted in? How big are the root balls? How wide were the holes dug? Were the root balls planted to deep? Post some pics if you can.
