Tree transplanting is the process of moving a tree or shrub from one place and planting it in another. Some people may decide to transplant their tree as part of a broader tree landscaping effort. Others may like to change their yard’s layout or give their tree a better opportunity to thrive.
Whatever your reasoning, it’s important not to rush the process and put as much effort into planning as possible. Your tree’s life may depend on it.

Reasons for Tree Transplanting
Trees are a valuable asset, which is why it’s important to consider tree transplanting rather than tree felling. If you love your tree, but it’s just not in the right place, then tree transplanting could be a worthwhile option to consider.
Other reasons for small or large tree transplanting include:
- Yard layout changes
- The tree isn’t thriving in its current location
- You prefer more or less shade in an area
- The tree is a hazard in its current location
How to Transplant a Tree
The tree transplanting process can be a tricky one. As a result, you may wish to enlist the help of Auckland arborists.
You have to choose the best time of year – such as in autumn after the leaves have fallen. You then have to prune the tree’s roots, prepare the new location, dig out your tree, then replant it. Don’t forget to add compost, water, and a nutrient mix to minimise the shock of the move.
