When planting trees by yourself, it is VERY important that you keep the root flare HIGH out of the ground-at least 2" above the existing soil line.
Adding natural/organic amendments such as compost, lava sand, corn gluten meal, dried molasses, and Garrett Juice is also important. These products add trace minerals and microorganisms back to depleted soil. There is no synthetic fertilizer on the planet that can take care of a tree better than nature itself by means of microorganisms.
These American Sycamores will be huge in just a few years.
