I am transplanting a London Plane tree that is approx. 2-3 yrs. old. When digging it up part of the trunk was damaged including removal of some bark and some of the side roots. What can be done to help this tree survive? Thanks.
Spray the wounded bark with a product from a nursery for pruning cuts, to keep fungus out. The side roots will regrow. Plant it in loose sandy soil with good rich organic material in it, even if you put it in a temporary place (a practice called 'heeling it in', for temporary) so that the roots have the easiest possible time regrowing nice and long before you plant it into the permanent spot.
