moving an evergreen tree update


By Sarahc

derry, Ireland Ie

just an update on the tree removel couldnt wait til autumn as have workmen coming to lay a patio so had to take a chance and move it now, prepared the hole with bonemeal and two strong men to dig it out and rehome it, am watering the leaves a couple of times a day(on the recommendation of my local garden centre), its been moved two days now and it looks ok, so fingers crossed, hopefully job done



Yes, you were lucky, but I see you live in Italy. If it looks stressed it will loose some leaves in order to survive, as leaves evaporate the water from the tree. It is a natural habit of evergreen trees to loose some leaves in the drier months.

I hope you are watering the whole tree and not just its leaves! LOL. Once a week with a thorough water to ensure that the roots get it. Hope it survives.
