- This is a nice project to do with a loved one, for it can be revisited and appreciated for years to come. Pick the planting site; perhaps somewhere visible from the house so your child can easily see the tree's growth.
- Dig the hole, adding nutrients if desired, and examine the root ball to make sure the hole is big enough.
- Pack the soil around the root ball, and you have a living monument.
