View Full Version : How to transplant arbor vitae's?

04-05-2008, 12:55 PM

I am looking for some guidance on transplanting a few arborvitae's for a customer of mine? They are about 5 feet high and he wants to transplant them from back to front. Here are my questions?

What size root ball should I dig?.

Do I need to burlap or wire basket them?

What size hole to put them into?

Should I add any amendments (topsoil, leafgro, ROOTS, etc.)?

How much time per tree will this take me?

Any other advice.

Thanks for any help!
