Unless you have grossly infertile soil, trees do not need food when being transplanted. In fact, it is a bad idea as you want the new tree to concentrate on establishing a strong root system in the native soil in which it will continue its life. Here is a document about New Tree Planting http://www.treesaregood.com/portals/0/docs/treecare/new_treeplanting.pdf that you may find helpful.
