While planting each of these different types of trees differs in the details, all trees eventually end up in a hole, but not any old hole will do. The most common mistake when planting a tree is a digging hole, which is both too deep and too narrow.
For holes too deep, the roots don't have access to sufficient oxygen to ensure proper growth. When the holes are too narrow, the root structure can't expand sufficiently to nourish and properly anchor the tree.
As a general rule, trees should be transplanted no deeper than the soil in which they were originally grown. The width of the hole should be at least three times the diameter of the root ball or container, or the spread of the roots in the case of bare root trees. This will provide the tree with enough worked earth for its structure to establish itself. For more information about tree planting, you can also call us at (303) 380-2252.
There is always danger in moving plant material from one location to another. Root material is sacrificed and, depending on the previous state of the plant, this can be a severe stress. If necessary, it is possible to transplant trees from one area of your property to another. The key lies in ensuring that the tree to be transplanted has a good healthy root ball and that the tree and ball together are not unmanageably heavy.
