wintering potted trees

the local nurseries are selling fruit trees for 50% off, and i would like to buy a few to plant in the spring. i need to take down some huge trees in november in my yard, so i can't plantthis fall.

i have read that i can half bury the trees in my garden, and mulch with straw and they will be ok for the winter. however, i friend told me that i have to watch for mice eating the bark. would i be safe from mice if i completely buried the trunk in soil? any other tips?

After you clear out those big trees, as long as the ground not frozen, you still can plant those fruit trees. The trees will go into dormant and it will be fine over winter.
