We had a spruce tree in our yard that had to be replaced so we took it out and decided on a Royal Frost Birch. The birch tree is my favorite deciduous tree and the Royal Frost is an absolutely stunning tree. With the very white bark and the purple leaves – it is awesome. So this morning we had one tree spaded in! Trees can be safely moved in the summer with a little extra precautions. We water each tree with a special solution a day or two ahead of moving that helps the tree to retain moisture. This makes the move a little easier on the tree. As soon as this tree was planted this morning – the tree spade operator was still filling in dirt and I was watering it in.
Our next step for this part of the landscape is to add a few Endless Summer Hydrangeas. Stay tuned!
