Need to transplant Yaupon Trees
Hello, I was wondering if anyone could give my any tips. I am about to have to transplant three yaupon trees. They are about 15' tall, and their trunks are about 5 1/2 feet apart. They have been thriving in their current location for the past 30 years. They are growing in sandy soils on a barrier island in zone 8. I hate to have to move them but I am having to replace my septic drain field, and new regulations require the drainfield goes where my Yaupons are. So I am going to have someone with a tree spade come and move them somewhere else in my yard. Will they have special watering/fertilizer requirements after the move? How big of a spade will be needed to transplant these yaupons. What I'm really wanting to know is how much existing soil/rood systems needs to me moved with the tree to make the transplant successful. Thank you for reading.
