I am planting 3 apple trees next week. They are the first I have planted. I have modified the soil and I understand the planting procedure. The trees are bare rooted. I do have a couple of questions for the care of the tree after I plant them. They are all dwarfs from Stark Bros. After they are planted do I implement a spray program for these trees during the first year? I have done quite a lot of research on spray programs on a yearly basis but I can not find information as what to do the first spring and summer of planting. Thanks in advance for responding to this request for information.

I think the spray program depends a lot on how old the trees are (1-year, 2-year), and what stage of leafing-out they are at (as it is now very late to be planting bare-root trees).

Thanks for the information Richard. You have convinced me to wait until fall.
