I was given a free tree from the free tree program . They showed us how to plant and add mulch, and how to water. It has been 2 weeks and the tree still looks the same. What I need to know is when should I see something. The tree is Staghorn Sumac. Thank You

Give it more time. Follow the directions you were given about watering. A newly planted tree can take a month or more to establish and start to put out new roots and foliage. If you live in a temperate climate this may not happen until the spring weather starts to warm up and the spring flush of growth gets going.
