I have bought 3 friut trees, and the soil. My problem is that the dirt in my back yard is like quick sand, and the place i want to put them gets direct sun. I want to know should I plant the trees now in the yard or wait to later?

Fruit trees should be planted in full sun so that solves one of the problems. I'm not sure that an area with soil like quick sand is the best place to plant trees, though. Is it possible for you to plant your trees on mounds of soil? This will help the soil drain quickly which will make the trees happy. If you can mound up your topsoil to make a raised island, that will take care of the drainage problem. Good luck with your trees.
