Expert Response

Citrus trees can be dug and moved, but there are three important steps. 1) dig the trees during the time of year when temperatures are cold or cooler to reduce potential heat stress. 2) cut the trees back significantly prior to digging. The canopy should be reduced 50 to 75%. 3) observe good replanting techniques, especially watering during the first 6 months.
