TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Tree Problems


When a tree is transplanted, it usually passes through a period of shock. Nature provides a balance between the root system and leaf crown. If the tree came from a reputable nursery, the roots were probably pruned for several years to form a compact ball of roots that could be taken up with the tree. Such pruning avoids undue disturbance of this natural balance. But, if a tree is dug from the woods or field, where no previous root pruning has been done, its chances of survival are not too good. If this is done, cut out at least one-third of the branches, at transplanting time. By doing this, the number of leaves that will grow during the following season will be reduced, which will increase the chances for survival.
