Step 1 : Plan its location and dig the hole
When choosing a spot to plant the tree, remember that it will grow. Choose an area of the yard where the tree has plenty of room to spread out. Be careful not to plant it below utility or phone lines or overhead cables.
Plant a living Christmas tree in your yard is much like planting any tree, however, if the weather is cold, you should take precautions so the ground doesn't freeze and the tree isn't damaged. After buying the tree, measure the diameter of its root ball and dig a large enough hole so the tree sits in it comfortably. Fill the hole will leaves or any loose material and cover it with a tarp so heavy snow or rain doesn't accumulate in it and freeze. Keep the soil you removed nearby to fill in around the tree when it is planted.
