It’s not what you plant but how you plant it. The light conditions, moisture, soil pH, wind exposure & improved drainage should be taken into consideration. Research has demonstrated that the colour pink reflects and focuses the red fraction, concentrating this photosynthetic energy to enhance plant growth. Step 2: We then added Tree Starter. If we can inoculate the tube stock with mycorrhiza we can limit these stresses and survival/growth rates will increase — as demonstrated now in our food forest trees. I have deer here in the U.S., ready to nibble all of my seedlings. Be very careful not to use synthetic burlap because it will not rot away and will eventually restrict the growth of the roots. METHODOLOGY OF TREE TRANSPLANTATION Tree transplantation is the latest technology to suite the need to conserve trees.

Now I have been working and trialing these tree guards for some time now, and I’m a believer. Mycorrhizas are fungi that live in a beneficial relationship with most tree roots.

And having people around the world using this system would be his dream coming true. A bull horn swale, a technique that Matt always uses, places the tree in a dish below ground level with small swales to focus the water into the tree. Our last planting of the food forest was held on the 4th August 2010. However, all trees experience some degree of shock after being transplanted—the length of recovery time simply depends on the quality of aftercare. Just as we apply starter fertiliser when young trees are planted we also need to consider inoculating with mycorrhiza to enhance survival rates. Deep ripping with a Yeomans even in Clay (assuming the moisture is right, not to wet for the rip to glaze or to dry for the rip to shatter and turn the soil over)this will encourage root development of grass and or weed to penetrate. Also before initiating root cutting process, we make sure that the tree is not infected and if it is we treat accordingly.

Tree seedlings purchased from our suppliers are transplanted into patented pyramid tree pots that are part of a larger in-field tree growing complex. We have although not checked the water which would be available to us because of which we might have to undertake alkaline/acidic management of root zone conditions. At the community garden we didn’t have the chance to get much preparation done, like deep ripping on contour with a Yeomans Keyline Plow 12 months before planting.

National Shade Tree Spade : Height 14 Feet, Lenght 70 Feet, Tree spading is a common method for moving and transplanting large trees from one site to another. As for the community garden. Tree Tonic lessens the impact of transplant shock by providing essential nutrients and to reverse the negative effects of transplanting and helps the plant to recover and increase growth rates. We systematically prune the roots in phases and initiate fresh growth of roots and make the plant adapt itself gradually into a new routine whereby after cutting the roots, we treat the cut parts and feed it with different methods. The trees are an important part of our ecosystem, and play a vital role in maintaining the biodiversity of the area. If you have the chance to test this tree planting methodology, please keep us updated on how it goes. Step 3: We flood-irrigated the tubes and fruit trees to remove all the hot air from the roots.
