digging up mature citrus trees to move
I need to move about five mature citrus trees. I say mature, but they are young/mature. The roots extend about a foot out from the canopies. On the average, the canopies are about 5 feet from the trunks.
My question is, how far away from the trunk can I dig -- is there a technique?
Reason for moving, the trees have sunk and I don't know any other way to remedy the problem.
Some trees are getting shaded from the afternoon sun.
Some trees are too close to other trees and the cituation will only get worse.
