Choosing a day to transplant trees is certainly a challenging task, moving a tree is critical.
A client required clearing of access to a garage which brought me to this situation. Optimum transplanting on the dark moon was past yet we are still enjoying winter moisture and dormancy. Our diarised day broke cold, windy and wet.
We proceeded to root prune, clip off leaves,to reduce shock and dig a new home. Without too much fuss, the team is well drilled, we transplanted a water pear and a yellowwood new sites. Compost, regular watering and TLC should see them settle and show new growth in the summer.
Hopefully the owner of the adjacent plot chooses to keep access away from the trees.
