How it Works Step 1

Step 1

Find the new location for your tree. Position the spade at a defined direction, say North. Engage blades and scoop your hole.

How it Works Step 2

Step 2

Align the spade with the tree in the same direction chosen for the hole—in this case, North.
Open blade, move forward to position tree in the center of the dig area. Engage blades until they meet.

How it Works Step 3

Step 3

Lift the tree up and transport to the new hole. Note: In harder earth, the spades may cause glazing on the hole walls. Before the new tree is placed, this surface needs scuffing in order for the new roots to penetrate.

How it Works Step 4

Step 4

Align the shaft with the orientation of the new hole. Lower and position the tree Note: Trees become more tolerant of hot afternoon sun on one side. Changing their orientation can burn the foliage.

TREE MOVING BEST PRACTICES

When to Move

Trees can be planted any time of year, watering becomes more important if moved in a dry season. Although moving trees in the spring or fall has previously been seen as the optimal time, this is only because it is typically cooler and wetter during these times. When moving a tree outside of this, simply be sure the tree is well watered for several days before hand.

Preparation

Tree

Make sure the trees are well watered 2-3 days before moving.

Mark the trees orientation so it may be transplanted in the same direction reducing the risk of sunscalding.

Secure any low hanging branches that may be damaged during transplant.

Trunk size

The trunk size helps estimate the size of the root ball underground, as roots typically extend as far as the tree's branches. For softwood trees, it is generally acceptable to trim about half of the roots. Increased watering may be necessary when moving softwoods larger than recommended and selecting shady or moist locations will also help insure survivability when trimming large amounts of root. In contrast, for hardwood trees, only about one-third of the roots should be trimmed, as they are more sensitive to root loss and excessive watering will only lower chances of survival.

Hole

Location - find a suitable location that meets the environmental requirements of the specimen.

Create the hole in which the specimen will be relocated.

Prepare the hole based on the soil condition. If the soil has a large clay content rough up the sides for easier root penetration. If the soil is sandy add appropriate nourishment, and if the soil is dry water the hole.

Aftercare

Keep well watered to help establish roots.

Apply mechanical supports if required to help stabilize the tree for one to two years while the specimen re-establishes.

Tips

Keep your tree spade in good operating condition and wellmaintained. Sharp blades will reduce damage to root systems.

Try to replant your specimen within two hours. This will help reduce shock.

Spade School

Position the tree spade around the tree to be moved ensuring it is resting on the ground and that the spades are spaced evenly around the tree. Failure to accurately position the spade may result in unnecessary trauma to the tree.

Depth Illustration

Dig in with each spade 3 inches down then 2 inches back until frame rests on ground. Move to the next spade working around the tree. This keeps the spades aligned with less disruption to the roots and keeps the tree straight. Keep working the spades in until they are fully extended.

Note: Frame must remain on ground or root ball size will be decreased.

When all spades are fully extended, wiggle the root ball in the hole slightly increasing the pocket sides and releasing additional root mass. Raise the unit, lifting the tree out of the hole. Depending on the extent of the root growth some manual root pruning may be required to free the tree.

Place the tree in the hole and reverse the process by raising the spades around the tree a little at a time until the tree is resting comfortably in its new home.

How it Works Step 1

Step 1

Prepare root ball.

Flatten root ball for stability. Retract the spades a little at a time in a circular motion, until approx. 6" of the root ball is exposed below spades. Using a shovel remove the excess and flatten the root ball.

How it Works Step 2

Step 2

Get basket ready.

Place your burlap liner in the wire basket and place the basket on level ground.

How it Works Step 3

Step 3

Place in Basket

Line up the root ball with basket and lower into place. Retract the spades fully, until root ball is resting in basket. Remove the tree spade leaving tree in basket.

How it Works Step 4

Step 4

Tie tree in place.

Fold in burlap and basket and tie tree into place.
