The above tree, southern beech, was blown over a year ago. Its about 4 to five meters tall. I pulled it back up and staked it firmly. Its growing quite well but recently the tie broke. I fixed it I feel without the staked support it will fall over again. Can I dig it up and replant it so that it will have a firmer base? It has a lot of sentimental value as well as being a nice tree.
This arrangement allows the tree to move, which is essential for stem development, but supports it too and can be left in place for years as the tree improves its own anchorage.
Clear all grass and weeds to a diameter of two or three metres around the tree stem to encourage vigorous growth.
