Bur Oak Planting Problems (Too much water?)
Hi, this is my first time posting here, so keep in mind I'm a noob.
Last Saturday (5/5/12) I planted a 5" caliper, 18-20' tall Bur Oak in my back yard. It was B&B and had been out of the ground for close to a month. The root ball was 50" across and 3' deep, tapered.
It has been just over a week since I planted the tree, and now I am worried that something is wrong. The leaves are all turning brown and shriveling. We have had a crazy amount of rain since I planted it, not to mention I watered it like crazy the day that I planted it. Would this be as a result of too much water?
This is my first time planting a tree, so I really have no clue. I definitely don't want it to die, so please help.
