How to plant a tree

See it on youtube

Planting a tree seems fairly straight forward, dig a hole and plant the tree. But there are a number of gotchas along the way that you need to be aware of. For example the stake that comes with the tree, do you plant it with the tree or remove it. How wide and deep should the tree be. How to properly stake the tree to prevent snapping in high wind, and then how long to keep the stake in there for. Do I water every day, and where do I water the tree. I go through all those questions in this video and more. Plus at the end I go through the mistake I made before properly researching this project.
