Dig a hold that is 3 to 4 times wider then the pot and plant the tree as deep as it was in the pot.
Make sure you do not damage the roots while removing from the pot and backfill with the soil from the hole. Do not add foreign soil.
Add 3 inches of mulch to help with moisture retention.
Keep the soil moist for the first year. 2nd year water when the soil is dry.
Watering deeply once a week is preferable.

A container planting is not recommended for this tree.
