Planting & Care
2. Watering: You can water your tree every week during its young life. If it rains, you don't need to water your American Elm at all. After a couple years, you only need to water the tree during very dry spells. But if you’re not sure when to water, check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down. If the soil is excessively dry here, it’s time to water.
3. Fertilizing: After the first year, add a balanced fertilizer to the soil every spring. Be sure to follow the label instructions carefully. As your tree ages, fertilizing is unnecessary.
4. Pruning: You don't need to prune your American Elm Tree, but it can be helpful to remove dead bark and branches in the fall.
