Hello everyone,i am on vacation in northern MI. U.P. right on lake superior.Well i was doing some exploring today and came across a beech grove with many seedlings(not root suckers,already ckecked).
The owner of this property happined to see me and wanted to know what i was doing,and i told him i was just admiring the trees.he told me the property just sold to a company that was going to build a hotal on it(sale still pending). So no more beech grove!! I asked him if i could collect a few saplings and he was thrilled some trees would be saved.
So my problem is i am only here for three more days,so what are the odds of me transplanting these trees and them surviving.I would usually dig and burlap the root ball but they are growing in pure sand the root ball will not hold together and i know beech trees do not transplant well any time of year especally bare root. Any ideas?
