recently published photos of four cork oaks responded differently to being dug and planted in pots. A weathered the transition well, both lost their leaves immediately, and the fourth showed few signs of life. Only three weeks later, the trees are looking much better. Here is the first tree.

leafed tree two totally outside

tree three with a lot of new outbreaks

The fourth tree made a surprise comeback. They leaf out and back in the making and is on track to reach the other trees in the coming weeks.
