    RE: tree transplant

    Not necessarily, some younger trees don't show much of a root flare until they are older.

    Only you can reveal the answer to that one. Uncover it and hopefully it isn't too deep but that looks like a telephone pole sticking out of the ground.

    RE: tree transplant

    Speaking of Pin Oak, are the leaves supposed to be a bit dark orange with green this time of year? Mine were purchased in 2009 as bare root transplants so they are quite small. The leaves look healthy. This is the 2nd set as the first growth was killed off by frost or eaten by critters.

    RE: tree transplant

    If you take a sharp object such as a nail or tent stake and poke around the tree you should find the topmost root just below the soil. If you have to poke down 5 inches or so then the tree is too deep and probably needs to be raised. If you walk around town where I live you'll see pin oaks that are 40" in trunk diameter and their root flares start about 24" above ground. You never find trees this large without them because they died long ago. Also, don't let that mulch touch the bark.
