Re: Sabal Brazoria transplant

If you get a good rootball and dig it out in a professional way it should do fine . I dug up a Sabal Louisiana and had growth within 3 weeks . It had a solid rootball when I transplanted it though , and I watered it well every day for a few weeks . If your plant has been there a long time and it's " big " it will of course be harder to get a good solid rootball and it'll weigh more , etc. I know I could dig it , but then I've dug a lot of trees like Oaks at a nursery where I worked during my year off from college , so I know the technique of getting a solid root ball and then transferring to various locations without the ball falling apart .
The way many people transplant plants is just to start hacking at the base of the plant and the rootball is nonexistent and there's just a bunch of roots exposed to the outside air .
Good luck .
