Q. Transplanting a Tree

I just transplanted a nearly 6-foot Australian Pine that was in a pot. I followed instructions from another web site I saw, but my question is how long after transplanting it will I know if it is ok or dying?

Newly planted trees are vulnerable for up to a year after they are planted. If it does fine for a year, then you can consider it established. For the next year, look for yellowing or dropping needles to indicate if the tree might be failing.
