I have 20 green beech that were origionally in 2 litre pots but they rooted into the ground where they stood. I have now replanted them in 12 inch poly bags. If these were now laid almost flat on the ground until they rerooted would there be less chance of losing them or of dieback from the top.

There is likely to have been a loss of roots and this can cause die-back if the loss was great.

Potted up trees are always much better standing and the straighter the better. If they can be secured to stakes or to a couple of stands of wire supported between posts.
