We have reports of trees being planted in this manner and have thrived. Make sure the soil is fertile and the tree is kept watered during dry periods. See our publication on planting information for tree fruits http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG69_Getting_Started...
