Answer: You shouldn't have received your bare rooted tree so early! To try to hold it until May when it's planting time, I'd place it in a cool (40F) basement with the roots wrapped in damp peat moss or newspapper and covered with plastic. The roots need tobe damp, but not wet. Hopefully it won't start growing until May when you can plant. If it doesn't survive, send it back to the nursery for a refund!
