Move a Tulip Tree
I only got 3 flowers on my "Magnolia Jane" Again!
I've tried fertilizer and no fertilizer. I believe I need more sun.
My plan is to dig around the tree and try to keep as many of the hair roots at the surface in tact. I'll only need to drag it about 15 feet. Should I keep as much soil as possible on the roots, or should I not stress about that and worry about getting the deep roots.
As you can see this is a first for me and I don't know what to worry about and what doesn't matter.
I so know that I probably won't have much control over keeping the soil on the roots. Do you think the tree would like a bag on composted manure in the hole to dig its roots into to leave the soil as is. My soil is nice. A little sticky and a little sandy and dark.
Any suggestions are welcome, I started diggin the new hole this evening. It is going to take a while.
