After setting your cypress in the planting hole, use one hand to hold the plant straight and your other hand to begin back-filling your soil mixture around the root ball, tamping as you go to remove air pockets.

Thanks for your input. Hi both, We have had a smoke bush for over 20 years that grew into a smoke tree as can happen if pruned to make it that way. We were suprised to see that you cut off all the branches of yours not leaving any to enable this tree of yours to regrow.
At least- that is what it looks like in your photograph. At least two side shoots on each branch surely should have been left. Then it would be re-energised to grow again close to the ground as you wish.

I planted 2 smoke trees about 12 years ago and they did great, but like everyone else on here I pruned them wrong. So what happened? Did it grow back like the other trees did?
When The Smoke Is Going Down - Powercloud - How To Recognize Shrubs love the before and after pictures you guys post.

Since I had never trimmed When The Smoke Is Going Down - Powercloud - How To Recognize Shrubs back quite so dramatically before I was a bit concerned on how it would grow. It was beautiful and very full.
They were small plants which I bought when they were selling out their plants. They seem to be growing well, besides the occasional deer eating on them. Would it help or hurt the plants if I were to cover them with styrofoam rose covers this winter?
One way of doing this is to mulch under the tree, and when watering, rake the mulch out into a ring as far as the branches spread. When The Smoke Is Going Down - Powercloud - How To Recognize Shrubs will create a "swimming pool" that you can pour water into. It will gradually soak in.
