Shrubs or small trees transplanting

Dig a trench around the tree or shrub to about forty inches from the trunk or branches of the ground. Stitch or cut any roots that you come from. Then insert the channel from the roots below the root ball through. Bring a garden fork under the clump and push it up. If the tree or shrub is not too heavy, you can lift it out of the hole. If the distance to the new planting hole is not big, you can put it on a sturdy canvas (a burlap bag) and then him to drag his new plant location. Otherwise, use a wheelbarrow or cart.

Make sure the new planting site is prepared, because you need as quickly as possible to implant the roots dry out counter. Please make a generous planting hole where the root ball fits. Enrich the soil by adding a large amount of compost to work through and secure it wet. Because a large plant or tree is very wind sensitive, you may need it in the beginning, after transplanting, to support (see below). Set the shrub or tree in the desired position in the hole. Plant as deep as he stood on the old place. Bring the enriched with compost, excavated soil around the root ball into the hole and kick back firmly. The stamp down usually occurs slightly deeper trench around the root ball. Let provisionally so. It is ideal to include the first weeks of extra watering. If the tree or shrub grows through once, is no longer necessary and can equalize. Provide ample water after the implantation. Especially with evergreens are sometimes as young shoots wilt, but if all goes well, it recovers quickly.

Older, heavier trees or shrubs transplanting
It’s best to the expert. It is hard work and can even be dangerous. A gardener has got the right equipment. In general, in two stages worked: in the fall prior to transplantation is well away from the trunk – to the desired root ball size – a trench around and through the roots dug and they are almost all but three well-distributed heavy roots after , pierced. Then the trench is filled with compost or potting soil. Water is poured into the trench. This form is new, fine roots for rapid regrowth later in the new location will provide. The following year will be the latest three heavy roots and sawed the tree root ball and all moved. Thus, the likelihood of good re-growth is greatest.

Whether or not a tree pole
A tree grows best when he himself with his roots firmly in the ground anchor. If a tree is transplanted, he has quite a crown that wind can catch it when the roots do not absorb enough. The tree stands “pry” and is even blown. Then a tree pole to support the perfect answer. A tree should not “rest on his stilts,” and doing little to root development. A little exercise can and should the pole (poles) to (s) no longer than one or two years remain. A pole is effective when it is put on the side where most wind is coming.
