Moving a Crab Apple tree

Posted: 06/02/2013 at 13:45

Hello All,

When I bought my house just over a year ago, there was a tree in the centre of the lawn, which turned out to be a beautiful red crabapple tree.  I want to move it to the front of the property, and had done a bit of research about times to move.  Late winter early spring was mentioned the most, and as we are rapidly approachng that time thought I would ask fellow gardener for any tips or advice. 

The trunk at the widest is probably 7" in diameter, the height possibly 10'.  I thought I would heavily prune it, dig the new hole and then start on digging the tree out.  Anyone anything   that would be of use would be appreciated.


best wishes


Any one know what this tree is please

Yes, it's crab apple. I have one that's very similar.

Alina thank you any idea of the name of it?  I am thinking of moving it next year and if it did not take, wanted to get another one similar because it is beautiful.

Evening All,

Bought a house last year november, with a tree in the middle of the lawn.  Thought it might be cherry (flowering), but have been surprised with the dark red of the blossom.  My search has lead me on to a crab apple but I am just not sure.  Picture of leaves and blossom coming up.

 Many thanks
