The art of hand digging trees and balling them in burlap really is an art. Some are good at it, others not so much. Me? I’d rate myself as an okay tree digger. At least with relatively small trees and shrubs. Recently I put up a post about Canadian Hemlocks trees and I have some extensive step by step tree digging photos and videos on this page; Growing, Propagating and Selling Canadian Hemlocks.
During the process of digging about 45 trees for My Plant Sale a couple of the tree balls fell apart on me. So this video shows you how to recover from such a mini tree digging disaster.
Question? Comments? Compliments on my awesome good looks? Joking.
