  • Moving trees...

    So a few weeks back I moved a bunch (15) of trees to my NC property and put them in ground. The plan was to wait until fall dormancy but a job change has me moving to Houston as soon as my house sells. So off I went with 15 trees - 7 figs, 4 poms, 3 pawpaws and a persimmon - all in the cab of my 4 door pickup... lol. Lucky the soil is sandy down there making it easy to dig, but the 5 yards of mulch nearly broke my back!

      Did the fig in the front seat call "shotgun"?

      5 yards of mulch is hard on any back. Good luck. How will they get water until they take? Did you plant them extra deep?

        Notice the black tube in some of the pics... drip irrigation on a timer. Fast, easy and relatively inexpensive.

      I'm wondering if you strapped the wife and kids to the roof.

      I also liked the shade structures around the pawpaws. Looks good!
