Asked on Feb 22, 2013
I have two oak trees that I'd like to transplant. One tree is about 2 1/2 feet tall and the other is 5 feet. While digging up similar trees in the past I noticed that the tap roots of similar sized trees were at least 2 feet in the ground. How much tap root do I need to be successful in transplanting these oak trees? I think they are red oaks.
