Answer: It's always a good idea to plant trees and shrubs so they're at the same soil level as they were growing in the container. If you plant them too deeply, you could suffocate the roots, or expose the above-ground stem or trunk to too much moisture, resulting in rot.
You can contact R.I. Cooperative Extension at (401) 874-2957. There is no listing for your county so you'll need to contact the number in Kingston as listed above.
