Three months before you transplant the tree, spray paint a circle around the trunk, leaving 18 inches between the tree and the paint. Press the tip of a shovel along the circle, force the shovel into the ground, pull it out, repeat along the remainder of the circle.
Remove the existing vegetation from the transplant site three months after you cut the long roots of the tree. Till the soil to a depth of 1 foot.
Dig a planting hole in the turned soil. Make the hole 36 inches wide and 6 inches deeper than you expect the root ball to be.
Lay a plastic tarp on the ground next to the tree. Insert the shovel in the circle you cut in the first step, and pry up the root ball. Lay the tree on the tarp, and transport it to the planting site.
Unwrap the tree, and inspect the root ball. Deepen the planting hole if necessary, and then tip the tree into the hole. Cover the root ball with soil, and water the tree.
Soak the roots of a bare-root tree for 60 minutes in a bucket of warm water before planting it in a hole twice the size of the root spread.

Fill in around the trunk with soil from the dug hole, firm the area and water the tree with a trickling hose for 30 minutes.Full Answer >
