Tulip Tree Transplant
New here and looking for help. We had to move a 15+ tall Tulip tree last weekend- it was planted less than 10 ft from garage and had to go for a project. We dug 4+ feet around it and we were very careful with the root ball, the tree was moved directly to the new hole that was very large, damp with a little loam added in. I used some root stimulator when watering for the 1st time, the tree is on drip line. As of today all of the leaves are dried and coming off with a crazy wind that came up, it appears there is some new bud growth at some points near where the now dead leaves were but I am not sure if they were already there as new growth before the dreaded move or not. Anyone have any suggestions? Should I prune back all branches? or just let it go until winter then prune and pray for new growth in the spring? I really want it to survive as I lost 2 weeping willows to the darn beavers last week so the area is looking a little bare. Thanks!
