    Special Care: The roots on these trees are greedy. This makes planting beneath the canopy difficult due to the roots taking all available water and nutrients. Planting these near a septic tank is a disaster waiting to happen.

    Pruning Advice: Prune lower branches regularly to increase the height of the tree if that is desired.

    Watering Advice: Water until it is established, then watering can almost cease completely due to the drought tolerant nature of these trees.

    Staking: Having a top heavy canopy necessitates staking for most trees.
