Simple Tips in Transferring your Young Trees 

We all know the importance of trees, much more nowadays that global warming is right on our doorstep. Trees produce the all-important oxygen while consuming the pollutants like carbon dioxide that are causing the bad effects of global warming.  

Because our Earth is in bad shape today, we have to do all the things that we can to help our planet recover. One thing to do this is by planting trees, and we don’t need to go far, we just need to plant one in our yard. 

Planting a tree in our yard is not as easy as it sounds though, we have to do minor research on how to do it correctly. The method of transferring or ‘transplanting’ our newly bought tree would determine if the tree would thrive or not. To help you here are simple tips in transferring your young trees. 

  1. Compatibility

We all have our own tastes and preferences, so I would assume you would like different kinds of trees in your yards. But whatever kind of tree you would like to have, you first have to determine if the tree’s needs are met in the environment of your yard. When a tree prefers moist soil all the time, make sure that your yard’s soil is indeed moist all the time; if it is not, then better choose a tree that fits your soil. 

  1. Prepare the Hole

In transplanting your new plant, you want to make the procedure as fast as possible. The longer you prolong the transferring, the lower your chances of making the transplant successful. That is why you have to prepare the new hole beforehand to make things easier in transferring. 

On preparing the new hole, you first have to do an estimated measurement of the size of the depth and width of the root ball. Once you have obtained a number, start to dig the new hole. The depth of the new hole should only be a bit shallower than the root ball, and the width should be as twice wider than it.  

In digging the new hole, what most people do wrong is that they break and shake the soil underneath. While you might think that this is beneficial for the roots of the plant, your thinking is wrong. The young plant would sink in the new hole, and this would cause rotting, 

  1. Time of Transplanting

Another tip to make transferring of a young tree successful is the time of year you are doing it. Tree experts suggest that you do this operation during late winter. This is because you are giving the young tree enough time to grow and to take hold solidly on the soil until the next harsh winter comes.

The Best Way to Pack for a Move 

Not everyone is fond on the idea of packing, it’s tiring and consumes time and not everyone is excited about the idea of moving either. If we have a choice, we would just want to move to the new place in an instant right? But even though packing, moving and unpacking is a laborious process, it can still be done easily. Amazing right? You can opt to hire Suburban Location Movers to pack the things for you, or pack your belongings yourself! The following are our tips for you to pack early and quickly. 

  1. Get Started and Organized 

First of all, start packing as early as a month before the moving date. This will save you time and energy in the weeks to come where you cram and pack the wrong things. Gather the packing supplies first, the boxes should be of different sizes. Write down everything on a moving file. The moving file includes the things you should do throughout your move. What to pack on the first week, on the second week and so on should be written so you won’t forget them.  

If it’s already several days before you move, pack a suitcase for each member of your family. Include essentials that you need for the first few days because almost all the other things are packed on the boxes. If you also want to save, instead of buying a lot of bubble wraps, use your old clothes for the padding. The big things are wrapped with the clothes and glassware is wrapped with socks.  

  1. Pack Effectively and Efficiently 

Before you pack everything, make a pack station/space on your current home. This is where you can drag and drop stuff and pack all of them. When you’re packing it, make sure to put labels on the boxes on according to what they belongings they are packed with. It’s also important to mark the boxes with numbers so you would know how many boxes you have with you. It will be easy to tell if a box is missing or damaged.  

Do not pack air. Wrap individual items with enough layers of clothes or any wrapping sheet. Place the items in the box in a position where it won’t be easily damaged. Lighter items should be on top and heavier are on the bottom of the box.  

To make things easier, pack the things that are found in a room in the same box. When you unpack later after the move, you would easily put the belongings at a particular room. You don’t have to look items in another box. If you’re hiring movers, this will be easy for them too. If the box is marked with ‘kitchen’, they’re likely to take the box to the kitchen.  

  1. Finish the Job 

After the move, not everyone is willing to unpack and put things in place. It will take days and even weeks to settle everything in the new house. That’s why you should have a box that has all the essentials you need for the first few days, it’s called an “open first” box. Include small yet essential items.
