Transplanting Citrus Trees
I have a couple of smaller sized citrus trees (Ruby Red Grapefruit and Tangelo) in my yard that Id like to move to another area. They were small when I bought them and have been in the ground roughly 3 years. At this point, they are maybe 5 ft tall and have roughly 2" diameter trunks.
How hard might these be to successfully transplant? Based on another small citrus tree I dug up in the past, I know the roots probably extend out quite a bit by this time on even these small trees. I wont possibly be able to get all the long roots when I dig these trees up (probably no more than maybe a 2 foot root ball as otherwise I will tear up too much of my lawn).
In this scenario, and in general, what are my chances of successfully transplanting these trees?
