New Young Tree in a new Raised Garden Bed? Risky?

12 years ago

Hi Everyone - I am relatively new to gardens and purchasing/planting trees so I am looking for a little advice...please :)

We are finally 'renovating' our front yard and part of the process was purchasing a new Profusion Crabapple Tree which is very young and probaby about 6 feet tall.

We would like a circular raised garden bed (two levels of stone blocks) and would like to place the new Crabapple in the middle of it.

Will the higher soil due to the garden bed damage the tree/trunk?

What is the best way of doing this? I just want to make sure that placing the tree in the garden bed doesn't jeopardize it.

Thanks in advance I really appreciate any thoughts on this.
