Transplanting Spruce Seedlings
Hi there,

We have just purchased 2 acres of land lwith a house and the side of our house has many young and very young spruces trees growing in a scattered manner and wild. I would like to transplant some of these trees to the front of our property to line along our long driveway. Is there anything special I need to do in order to ensure successful transplants?

Thanks
Chris

Re: Transplanting Spruce Seedlings
When transplanting trees the most important thing is to make sure that the roots don't dry out. To successfully transplant your spruce trees make sure you get as much soil with the roots as possible. Also when digging up the trees you must try and get as many of the roots as possible. When I transplant trees I dig the hole the tree is being transplanted to first, ajusting the the size later to fit the roots in. The best time to transplant in the spring is before the buds break open.
