    Planting distance

    In spring of 2006 I planted a Koelreuteria paniculata (Goldenraintree) bare root seedling in a planting bed. I was going to transplant it this spring but it really seems to like where it's at now. Where it's at now is 4 feet from a 2 foot high stone patio that is attached to the south side of the house. The tree is now 11 feet from the house. The wind would most likely blow any leaf litter away from the patio as the tree is on the east side of it.

    My question is, should I move it or will it be OK where it is? Any problems with roots? I'd send a picture but it's a winter wonderland out there these days in upstate new York!

    If you like it there leave it. If not move it before spring. If you move it, it may slow it's growth for a season till it's roots get established.




    it's your place dude

    RE: Planting distance

    Hi Esperance,

    Not sure if liking a tree where it currently is located is a good idea if it will outgrow the spot. These trees grow to 30' to 40' tall AND wide. If it's 11' from the house, that sounds like a pruning nightmare to me. That could mean that you will have to prune off 9' of the crown. I'd recommend you move it before it gets too large.

    When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

    RE: Planting distance

    Thanks for the advice. I think I'll see if it survived this winter. That hort site said it is only hardy to zone 6 and I am in 5.
    If so, I'll move it. I don't want any hassles with it in another 20 years. I'm getting to old for that.
