When planting large trees it is important to stake the tree with 3 stakes to keep the wind from shaking the roots loose. Use proper ties so as not to damage the bark. Also before planting, prepare & water the hole well. All newly planted material must be well watered right up to freeze-up.
During the first couple growing seasons, your newly planted tree is expending a lot of energy trying to get its roots established in the soil. It is important NOT to depend on the rain to water deep enough to support healthy roots. Keep grass well away from the tree trunk so as not to do damage from the mower.
