Transplanting an olive tree may seem like a daunting task, however it’s actually quite possible and one of the easier plants to transplant.All that is needed is to follow proper instruction on the procedure. The first step is identifying where the roots of the tree are located. From there you want to dig it up and begin severing larger roots. Then all that needs to be done is the actual moving of the tree in order to plant it. Finally, you also want to create a basin for the tree in it’s new spot to grow in. Transplanting trees is usually a difficult task, but the olive tree is a resilient tree and good place to start for novices.
- If the tree is small enough for you to manage with some help or if larger with equipment, you can get a big fruiting olive tree worth thousands for no more than the effort to transplant it.
- Identify the outside edges of your root ball relative to the size of the tree with a shovel line. Use the diameter of the resulting circle as a guide to the size of the hole you need
- When the root ball is entirely free you’re ready to move the tree out of the original hole. This can be done with pure manpower or rented equipment.
“The reason olive trees are available locally for transplant is because many homeowners resent the fruit mess and suffer allergies to its copious pollen. As the haute new organic orchard crop for a changing climate, it’s possible to find an olive you can move to your yard for free while relieving the owner of her problems.”
