LARGE TREE MOVING: SUCCESS, FAILURE AND EFFECT

LARGE WILD OR WOODS COLLECTED MATERIAL CAN BE USED SUCCESSFULLY TRANSPLANTED IF GOOD HORTICULTURAL PRACTICES ARE EMPLOYED IN THE TRANSPLANTING WORK. ONCE THE TREE HAS BEEN MOVED, WATER MUST BE APPLIED IN SUFFICIENT QUANTITIES AND AT REGULAR INTERVALS TO PREVENT DIEBACK FROM OCCURRING. THIS WATERING, IN MINNESOTA, INVOLVES ABOUT 100 GALLONS PER TREE PER WEEK FOR TWO YEARS. WITHOUT THIS WATER THE TREES MAY NOT SURVIVE AND GROW AND/OR MAY SUFFER EXCESSIVE CROWN DIEBACK; TABLES OF RESULTS ARE GIVEN FOR FORTY DIFFERENT SPECIES. /AUTHOR/
