Naples, FL arborists want to make sure homeowners have all the proper information when trying to transplant a tree. 

Don’t Transplant a Tree Without These Tips

Transplanting a tree can be nerve-racking, to say the least. This is especially so when homeowners try to do it by themselves. Tree transplanting is always best when done with the help of a professional tree service company, but there are still some things the homeowner will have to take care of on their own. 

For instance, a homeowner will have to decide which tree is best for their property and at what age they want the tree to be that gets transplanted. However, professionals can help with this decision and might have the expert advice homeowners need when it comes to deciding what age the tree should be before transplanting.

Tree transplanting can be very stressful for a tree, so it is important that homeowners have the proper tips to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible. Continue reading to learn more. 

Pay Close Attention To the Leaves

Transplanting trees is a delicate process. Many trees don’t make it through but there are a few signals the tree gives before all hope is lost. One of the most important signals to look out for is the leaves. The leaves hold so much expression within them. If the leaves start to turn yellow, the tree is likely under a lot of stress. 

If the homeowner notices this, they should call the professionals that transplanted the tree right away. The sooner the homeowner calls the professionals, the better. The more leaves that turn yellow, die, and fall off of the tree, the less likely the tree will survive the transplant. 

There are many reasons that could cause the leaves to change colors: 

  • Overwatering
  • Underwatering
  • Not enough or too much sunlight
  • Improper soil 
  • Wildlife 

Always Plant Native Trees 

This might seem obvious to some but it is absolutely crucial to plant trees that are native to the area, especially when transplanting. Tree transplanting is already stressful enough for the tree, but if the tree gets transplanted to an area it isn’t native to, the tree likely won’t live the transplant. 

The tree service company the homeowner calls will likely have the best advice on the best trees to plant for the area. If the homeowner has their minds set on a tree that isn’t native to the area, the professionals might be able to help them find a native tree that looks extremely similar. 

Call a Professional For the Best Experience Possible

Regardless, the homeowner should always call the professionals that transplanted the tree, if they notice any problems with the tree. The tree service company will likely come out to inspect the tree for free. They may even be able to give the homeowner a few suggestions over the phone. 

It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to taking care of a newly transplanted tree.
