Transplanting an Old Dogwood


Anonymous added on August 7, 2015 | Answered

Can I transplant (move) my 10 to 20 year old dogwood. When would be the best time to move it to try not to kill it and are there any steps I could take to prevent harming it?

First, this is a rather old tree, which could make it a bit more difficult to transplant successfully, especially if it's quite large. Nonetheless, it is still possible to move the tree and I would suggest doing so in fall (or spring if you're prone to severe winters).
