The Q&A Archives: Proper Soil Conditioner

Question: How should I condition the soil to plant trees in an area that has heavy clay soil that prevents good drainage

Answer: Since the tree's roots will soon grow out beyond the planting hole, it is important to select a tree that can handle the native soil, perhaps something like a river birch or red maple. Your local county extension and/or professionally trained garden center staff should be able to help you select something suitable for the location where you want to plant.
