sassafras sapling

Zone vernon center ny | melodie added on May 17, 2016 | Answered

I have found all kind of things of what to do with my saplings but none on how to plant them....I ordered them from a tree place and it came with no instructions. Do I bury the whole thing past the stem or leave some of the roots out? I just don't know how deep and how far up the sapling I should go any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

The roots will need to be planted, no roots should remain above ground.
