Are there any tricks for transplanting pine trees?


Answer by  frank (279)

The outdoor temperature is critical in transplanting pine trees. To maximize the potential of success the best time to transplant trees is in the fall or early spring while the temperatures are just above freezing for a short period of time. The worse time to transplant trees is in the summer.

I've been told that for the pine to survive, some of the natural mulch found at it's base needs to be moved along with it, to prevent shock. Collect a one inch layer from around the tree and incorporate it into the soil at the new location.

-Match the pH of the soil to the pH of the soil that the tree was started in. -Transfer soil from the original hole to the transplant hole.
