    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!
