Moved a 50-60' tall Oak Tree
We moved a 50-60' tall Oak tree this past Sunday from the rear of our property to the front. Unfortunately, we couldn't do it in November or December when the sap was down. We're in southern Louisiana and have had one of the coldest winters in many years so I'm hoping we got it moved before the sap started rising.
We moved it in the afternoon, watered it in very well, and it rained all day yesterday and last night. I'll keep it watered all through this year for it to get re-established. No fertilizer.
Is there anything else I should do to help it make the transition?
I'm not sure what type of Oak it is but it is not a Live Oak. The leaf is long and narrow, the same shape as a Live Oak but about twice the size. The branches do not spread out like a Live Oak but it was dwarfed by 3 tremendously tall Pine trees.
