Volunteer Maple Trees Transferred

Anonymous added on July 16, 2012 | Answered

I have a lot of volunteer maple trees in my yard. I would like to transplant them to other places. What do I need to do to avoid transplant shock as much as possible and help them thrive? I live in Washington (Zone 4-5) Lake Tapps.

You need to make sure that they have some roots of their own when you move them. Depending on their size, you may want to pot the little trees up for at least a whole season before planting out in the yard. This way they will be able to form stronger roots.
