Moving a Katsura tree

Kevin Dolan asked 11 years ago

I planted a Katsura tree in early November and have to move it. It’s about nine feet high. I’v read that they don’t like being moved and am wondering if it would come to any harm being moved so soon again? Also would putting straw in the new planting hole help to establish rooting quicker?

Katsura or cercidiphyllum is not all that difficult to move until it gets to about six years old.

Yours is just planted and will suffer little from being lifted and moved as it has hardly rooted out yet.

Just make sure not to plant any deeper than the top of the pot or rootball.
