I want to rip out ugly evergreen bushes in my yard and plant apple trees in their place. Is this possible without harming the new trees? Thanks for your help!

Welcome!

Confused Are you saying you already planted the new trees?

Hi @Geoffrotal
If the evergreen bushes are big and old, their roots will have used up most of the nutrients in the soil, so you will have to replenish the soil with compost and fertilizer before planting trees. Also, have you checked that your yard gets enough sun for apple trees to grow well?
