I have a bur oak seedling I found behind one of the shrubs by the front of
the house. It's about 6" tall and has 4-5 leaves on it. I'd like to move
it to the front yard in a sunny spot.
Is there any precautions I should take when moving it? or can I just dig
deep around it (its close to the foundation, so I'm worried about hitting
the roots) and move it and water heavily. Should I use loose potting soil,
or is just the soil dug out from the turf OK?
The village planted an oak for us on our parkway (10' tall), but they said
that oaks should only be planted in the spring. Should I wait until the
spring, or is this little guy small enough to move right now?
