Yew Tree

I have a small yew tree that i want to move to another site - any tips on transplanting please



Yews transplant quite well Autumn would be best. Water well brfore moving with as much soil and least root disturbance you can manage.

Get the new site prepared first. Then get some hessian or an old sack cut open. Dampen it. Dig a trench around the tree away from the roots. Then use forks each side to lift the root ball onto the hessian. Wrap the hessian around the root ball and move the tree over to its new home. Plant it and firm in, then water well. Make sure that you water it well during its first year. (Hessian is quite useful to have around).
