What is the process for a weeping willow transplant?

I need to move a weeping willow.

If the diameter is more than 12 inches, start with a new one. You need to trench around the tree capturing as much of the roots you can. You will be limited to a 2-3 foot root ball for practical reasons. Be careful to leave the root collar at the same height in its new location. Water a lot.

It all depends how big the tree is you are trying to transplant. It if is small, I would dig a hole two times bigger then the base of the tree. Put the tree in the hole without disturbing the root, fill with dirt and water everyday.

Move in spring. Dig large enough to not damage the roots when removing and in the new location large enough to not crowd the root ball.

Only transplant trees when they are dormant in the winter or late fall. Keep the root ball moist, but not soaked.
