With climate change, trees were in trouble, pests and diseases. Thankfully, if we pay more attention to trees, they will safety. Moving a tree is backbreaking work and can take hours, and cutting down a tree and removing the stump is also difficult work.
How to move the tree?
There are two basic methods. The rootball can be dug by hand or excavated with a serious piece of equipment called a hydraulic tree spade.
Generally speaking, HCN tree spade attachments are used for larger trees. Of course, If the conditions are special, it must be dug by hand.
What care does a transplant need before moving?
First, the soil around the tree should be deeply soaked to hydrate the tree and to make digging easier.
The best transplant insurance is a technique called root pruning. Several weeks or, preferably, months before the move, make an encircling slice through the soil and the roots — drive the spade as deeply as it will go at the correct distance from the trunk. Then leave it. In time, the severed roots will grow a tight mass of new feeder roots that will lessen the stress of the eventual move.
