Many who are deep in the thickets of the transplant, I know it can be one of those baffling puzzles. This is just a brief post about what I think are some of the great not to forget:

1. Do not have your tree too dry before transplanting. Although it is a little easier for us, we would have a dehydrated tree just before cutting many of its feeder roots, which ends as a lose-lose bargain. It is better to have too wet and not too dry.

2. As a general rule, do not bare root trees. That’s for the specialists do special work and do everything possible to ignore the Japanese magazines show someone with bare-rooting courage a pine of 100 years, the blog or some silly as Crataegus Bonsai showing a hose of a deciduous tree . Bare-rooted probably kills more things than all the others put together, so without the technical attending, I’d say do not do it unless you have taught how and what is good that bare root and what should never make that way. Rooting naked is extreme, for extreme circumstances.

3. Sing while you work. Or at least put some relaxing music, as tense or not we transplant trees will not help. (The song is the main work of apprentices, by the way. The nights are usually taken by classes of long ridge, not to discourage anyone with excessively poor voice.)

4. No registration refers to transplant to determine when the tree was replanted last and next time to be replanted; see the tree. If a sharp stick in the ground will not come easily in various locations, you may need transplantation. A weak tree for any reason could have three times as long to fill a pot with roots as a strong heathy. Time is irrelevant.

5. Do not cut too much at the root of a young tree or can stagnate is momentum. And when transplanting saplings, in general, do not cut the top lot of the year replant.

6. Bamboo is his best friend. Shafts in very firm cepellones for anchoring cables or bracing systems trees roots very bad. Get timber bamboo walls about 1/3 “thick, which was divided. You can see how bamboo is used in several places in this blog.

7. Have a reason for transplant. If you’re going through the motions because it’s what you always do at this time of year, so, rethink that one. Evaluate each tree and its needs. If you do not know how to answer that, and then find a teacher. Do not star Trekking through the root systems of your tree, bold go where no one has gone before without a clue … Get clueified De Verdad transplant is like a open heart surgery;… we are dealing with the life of a tree here.
