Mate those are some great stumps, well done. Callistemon like plenty of water (you often see them growing along creek beds in the wild) so keep them nice and damp to help them recover.

I sometimes put collected trees into the garden. It can be a little more difficult to keep them properly hydrated when growth starts in spring and summer and you don't have the option to move them into a shaded or sunny place but quite a few will survive in the garden.

Temporary placement in the soil is known as 'heeling in'.
None of the trees I have worked with have objected to being heeled in for up to a couple of months, including pines and junipers, deciduous and a range of natives.
You don't even need to worry how well the soil is around the roots. As long as they are covered so the sun won't dry them out it will be OK. Air pockets no problem.

Sweet. I’ll chuck them into the garden beds until I can pot them up.
