Tree Transplanting Tips

Ideal transplanting locations and conditions depend on a tree’s size and species; generally, however, the best times to transplant a tree are during the spring and fall seasons, before frost develops in the soil and when the tree is dormant. Each tree prefers different levels of shade and sun, as well as varying soil drainage conditions. Other factors that may affect transplanting location include the height and size of the tree, the location of home foundations, power lines, and even underground utilities.
Although some tree species react better to transplanting than others, most trees will move well so long as the process is executed properly.

However, we do not recommend transplanting older trees that are deteriorating or diseased. Additionally, if the new location is deemed unsuitable for the specified tree, it may be detrimental to transplant it. Because the tree will lose a significant amount of its root system during transplanting, it is important to make sure that it is well-hydrated before and after the transplanting process. Follow up with proper tree care and inspections for insect damage.
