The best time to plant them is in fall or early spring. Since they are large trees, space individual trees atleast 40 ft. apart; space grouping at least 30 ft. apart, so their canopies will touch each other. Fertilize them in winter with a complete food, 10-10-10. They are occasionally sucseptable to brown soft scale or cottony cushion scale.
