We have numerous pine trees on our land. We would like to move some of the smaller ones to different areas to allow for the others to grow. When is a good time to transplant in this area?

Now (January) is the time to transplant pines. I must say however that they do not transplant very well unless they are very small. Dig down and get as much of the taproot as you can. Wet the roots and plant them vertically in the hole (do not allow the bottom of the root to turn up like the letter "J"). Make sure and set the trees at the same depth that they were growing prior to transplanting. Firm the soil in around the roots and water in well.

Good luck with your trees!
