A saying goes: You do not transplant an old tree! But with our tips and a little perseverance, planting the tree should not be a problem.
You can easily implement smaller trees with a spade. For very large trees, however, you should always get a specialist company with appropriate equipment to help.
In a larger radius around the tree, you first have to cut off the roots so that you can later lift the tree out of the ground.
Of course, the radius depends on the tree size. The treetop is a clue to the size. The radius should be about the same size.
The ideal time to root off is the late summer - from August to September, depending on the weather.
The trench, which grows around the root when trimming the tree (variable in width depending on tree size), you then have to fill with compost and irrigate it over a longer period of time. As a result, soon again new fine roots, which the tree at the new location urgently needs to survive.
In this way you have to look after the tree for about a year. On hot summer days, you can help maintain moisture in the root area with bark mulch. Simply sprinkle bark mulch around the ditch and water several times.
In the following late summer you can transplant the tree. So that the branches suffer less damage later during transport, you should always tie them together before moving.
Now you have to dig a generous planting hole around the tree. The trench should be slightly larger than when rooting. Be very careful when digging, as this is the only way to avoid damaging so many of the fine roots.
The size of the plant hole is now crucial for the new location. Where you want to implement the tree, the new hole must be the same size. Then insert the root ball and fill the planting hole with compost. Lightly compact and pour properly.
In the next few days and weeks you have to water the freshly transplanted tree regularly and extensively.
Around the tree you should hit piles best. This stabilization allows you to attach the tree several times so that it can root in peace. For attaching natural ropes are suitable.
If you transplant the tree to a new location that has completely different soil (soil), you should pile a mixture of old and new soil around the root ball.
Flat-root shrubs usually grow easier than deep roots. Why deep rooting in the growth phase must be constantly monitored. Only in this way you can react quickly to growing problems - possibly then also consult a specialist.
