A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories

Successful establishment of new plantings is dependent on correctly matching species to site, using proper planting techniques and creating a soil environment that will allow new transplants to rapidly regenerate a root system. During transplanting, more than 95% of a root system may be lost when the tree is dug by hand or with a tree spade. Soil surrounding the new plantings must have sufficient water, air space and nutrients to support rapid root regeneration to ensure plant survival. This report includes 10 steps that will help ensure planting success.
