Transplanting Arborvitae


   Transplanting arborvitae is a fairly straightforward process. It is very similar to the act of transplanting most      other plants. Transplanting arborvitae should always be done in the autumn months.

   The first step is to dig around the plant and fairly deep. The underground root structure of an arborvitae          plant can sometimes get pretty large, and it is important not to damage any roots if possible.

   Once the plant is up, remove much of the soil from around the roots. This can be done using water or lightly      shaking the roots. Once the soil has been removed, select a new location for the plant.

   Ensure that the new location will satisfy the needs of the plant. There            should be a good amount of direct sunlight each day, and also good              drainage of water.

   Once the location has been selected, a hole must be dug for the plant. The    hole should be large enough to house the entire root system freely, and          not in a large clump.

   Spread out the roots and add soil a little bit at a time and press firmly to        remove any air pockets and reinforce the support for the plant.

   The crown of the arborvitae, where the roots come together, should be          just an inch or so beneath the surface of the soil, as the roots need air          to grow.

   Now, the plant must be watered gently, to ensure the roots are in contact      with the soil.

   Transplanting arborvitae is often done for a variety of reasons. One reason      is that the plant may not be thriving in its current location. This may be          for several reasons, including not enough sun or soil drainage.

   Another reason for transplanting arborvitae is to create a better screen for      wind or unattractive sights.
