Yes, put the cuttings in the ground after loosing the dirt in the immediate area only. Do not add fertilizer at this point. The cutting must first establish its roots in the ground. Typically, trees are fertilized in early spring as growth begins. Use a long-acting granular fertilizer meant for trees. I would only fertilize for 1-2 years without getting a soil test.
