Transplanting mango tree

    3 responses

Christianabs1 starts with ...
Hi mango growers,
I need some advice on how I can safely transplant a 2m mango tree. I’m moving house in about a months time and I really want to take my much loved mango tree. I have grafted numerous varieties on it and can’t bear to leave it behind. Has anyone successfully moved a mango tree?

I am in the process of moving a grapefruit tree ( going to give it to my sister as a grafting tree .) .
I am slowly digging it out . Cutting the root ball 1/2 at a time .
What I did was cut/dig half of the root ball about 3 weeks ago ,allowing the tree to still have roots to feed it while the cut roots replenish/revive .
Then I cut/dug the other half , not lifting the tree for another week , again to help the roots heal and resprout.
During the processi fed the tree plenty of Seasol.
The tree was about 9 years old and maintained as an espalier and about 7 ft tall . .
The ball was cut at about 80 cm from the trunk and as deep as I could go .
When I remove the tree I will hose off the dirt , wrap the roots in wet heshen soaked with a little Seasol, I then use 2 giant bags (bales) to completely enclose the tree and on my roof racks delivere it to Brisbane.
Mango may have a tap root , so dig deep and carful .

Thanks for your advice. I have read to cut some of the branches back. Do you think this would be a good idea?
