Trees and roses have a natural way of getting ready for the cold months of winter. You will notice that the deciduous trees, (having leaves) have lost their leaves and look bare for the winter. Don't panic, this is nature's way of winterizing. The conifer trees (having needles) will show little change but they have gone dormant as well.
If you are unable to plant your tree upon receipt, your tree can remain in its container until spring. Place the plant and pot outdoors in a protected spot near your home. Insulate the pot with mulch or burlap. Let the natural winter take its course. This is not an indoor plant. It does not do well being kept indoors. Typical household heat dehydrates your tree. If you must keep it indoors for a limited time, place it near a window for sunlight in a cool room or porch area away from heat. Don't forget to keep it watered when soil feels dry to the touch. When spring comes you can plant your tree outdoors after the last freezing temperatures.
