Patience isn’t necessary growing hackberry trees because the tree matures rapidly growing 13” to 24” a year. Plant hackberry trees in almost any soil. While they prefer a slightly moist, organic soil, they tolerate clay, compacted soil, alkaline soil, and drought. Dig a hole as deep and at least twice as wide as the root ball. Set in the tree gently. Ensure that it’s straight. Fill the hole half full with soil and add two gallons of water. Allow the water to drain before filling in the hole with the remaining soil. Pat down the soil lightly with your feet.
