Caring for Trees after Transplanting
Now the hard work is done; it’s time for a few finishing touches and a couple of reminders. Below are some tips for care after transplanting:
- Watering your tree after transplanting is essential, but there’s no exact formula for how much and when. Factors such as soil texture, temperature, winds and the size of the tree itself make water quantity a moving target. To prevent root rot, keep the roots moist but not soggy. If there is no natural rainfall, plan on a deep watering every 12 to 14 days.
- Adding a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch (no deeper) around the base of the new transplant will help retain moisture and moderate soil temperature which in turn will promote root growth. Keep the mulch pulled a couple of inches away from the trunk.
- Staking is recommended for larger trees. Use three stakes and make sure that the line or rope does not cut into the tree bark. Sliding the line through a section of garden hose makes a good cushion between line and bark. Also make sure the stakes are driven into solid ground. Remove the stakes after one year.
- Do not fertilise a newly-transplanted tree or shrub. The stress to acclimate to a new site is enough, fertilising will stimulate unwanted new growth. Wait one year before fertilising a newly-transplanted tree or shrub.
- Expect a transplanted tree or shrub to take several years to fully recover from being moved. The plant may not bloom or produce new growth until it adjusts to its new home.
