The Q&A Archives: Planting Fruit Tree

Question: The fruit tree I just bought from Home Depot is in a mesh-like bag. Do I leave it on or take it off when I plant it?

Answer: If you can remove it, do so. The bag will eventually decompose, but roots will venture out into native soil sooner if you remove the bag, and will become better established before winter sets in.
