After the trees had been in the ground for more than a month, it was time to work on their beds. We had taken great care to make sure they were planted at the proper depth - (which is the exact same depth that they had been growing). Click here for instructions from the Texas Forest Service about how to properly plant a tree. We added some compost to the bed and formed a water ring at the drip line. This is a Texas Persimmon, Diospyros texana. It can be identified by its smooth trunk, much like the trunk of a Crepe Myrtle.
In spite of the lateness, we scattered some wildflower seed in the tree beds.
