Everyone loves the idea of a vacation home. When looking for yours, be sure to factor in the cost of travel. That great condo deal on the other side of the country may not be very realistic if you can't afford the trip on a regular basis.
Water new trees once a week, regularly, during the first season, with l0 gallons of water. More for large trees. Pour the water down the trunks so it goes into the root ball, not along the top of the ground. In addition, whenever the leaves droop down or it is very hot, water again and mist the tops with the hose. Do not fertilize the first year.
