    Care Information
    Thrives in average, well-drained soils. Water regularly the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system; once established water deeply, less frequently. Thin young trees in late winter to early spring, leaving 3-7 main trunks or canopy branches. Prune older trees only to remove suckers from main trunks or ground. Feed with a slow-release fertilizer.
