10/18/12 Coral Bark Maple. The hole. 5' X 4' 2.5' Deep. Rocky, Clay and lots of grass and rosebush roots. I put a soaker hose into the ground with this tree. Just hook it up and let it run. The white tarp I used as a big pad for when we lifted it a day earlier and the blue strap is what I attached the come-along to.
