Each time a tree is moved, it will undergo a period of stress and shock before acclimating to its new home. If a tree is moved too frequently, it may not have enough recovery time and begin to decline in health. Exactly how often a tree can be transplanted depends on the tree’s size and species. As a general guideline, it takes one year to recover per every inch of the tree trunk's diameter. For instance, if the diameter of a healthy tree is 6 inches, it can be transplanted every 6 years. If you need to transplant a tree in a shorter amount of time, be sure to do so correctly and give it an extended time to recover after the move.
