Each tree has its own unique features and therefore requires different treatment but one thing that is common is that they all end up in a hole. But the hole is also not ordinary, it has certain specifications that need to be taken care of.  
The hole for planting a tree should be deep enough for the roots to access oxygen and wide enough for the root structure to expand sufficiently.  
Simply put, the hole should be 2 -3 times wider than the root ball and not deeper than the height of the root ball.
