Re: Replanting a Fig Tree
Moving a tree of that size is going to be difficult without the help of machinery and/or a tree service who specializes in tree moving. The root ball will be large and deep. If you don't get the tap root with the ball, it's all over for the tree. Don't try to separate the trees because disturbance of the roots like that is also certain death.
I would recommend that you dig up a start if you've got one popping up under the tree somewhere and replant that to a new location or get a new fig tree and plant it now.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
