moving weeping mulberry
Any recommendations about moving a weeping mulberry tree? We are adding a deck onto the house, and it is right on the edge of the construction site. It's been in the ground more than 5 years, since that's when we moved in and it was already here. Zone 4, Vermont, and it's a sterile or male one- no mulberry fruit. I love it though- it's a beautiful tree. It's about 5-6 feet tall and happy as a clam. maybe 2 in diam for the trunk? It is also leaning about a 45 degree angle- can we try to plant it more upright then that when transplanting, do you think?
