The winter belongs in the dormant period and as such it’s dispatching time. If good preparations are made and the temperatures are around 0°C, plants and shrubs can be planted in winter, too.
Large, old solitary trees in particular can surprise when in a new location: Quercus robur, transplanted 8 times, with root ball and a trunk circumference of 90-100cm is placed into the plant hole with a crane.
Spectacular pictures with blue sky!
When an old, red-leaved beech tree – Fagus sylvatica purpurea – coppiced tree, transplanted 8 times with root ball and a trunk circumference of 110-110 cm was transplanted it was snowing heavily and a hurricane-like storm was on its way. Everything worked well!
Both projects gained several more decades of time with these wonderful old trees that are full of character!
