Oh yeah. A
few more items to remember when planting a tree. Try to use the existing
soil as much as possible. If its composed of heavy clay,
then mix some organic amendments to the existing soil prior
to backfilling it. Replace the soil in layers while pouring
water slowly around the rootball. This procedure will settle the soil
better while minimizing air pockets, plus providing better stability.
During its first
season, do not rely on your sprinkler system (for those who have
yards) to properly provide enough water for the tree. Your irrigation system
will not supply enough water for a transplanted tree. During drought
periods, water the tree with a short soaker hose (if available) or
just irrigate it with a wand attachment for about 5 to 8
minutes (depending on tree size).
helps. Now... who wants to plant a garden?

Once again I come to the listserv for advice. I have a small fir
tree, approximately 5 feet tall, that beautiful though it is, must be
moved. The tree is located too close to the house and could create
problems down the road if left in its present spot.
I don't want to just chop it down, rather move it to a place more suited
to its anticipated growth. Once dug up, it's taking a cross-town trip in
the back of a pickup, about a 30 minute drive, to a relative's house for
Would you please give me some advice on how to do it with minimal shock
to the tree?
