I have an eight-foot fremontodendron that is rooted in the soakaway around the foundations of a south facing wall. It broke away from its ties and has fallen over into a horizontal position. It was already getting in the way of the footpath by the wall, so I thought this might be a good opportunity to move it elsewhere. It has a taproot that is about 6' long, with filaments that are difficult to dislodge. I don't want to damage the root unnecessarily, but I do want to move it. So my question is this:
When is the best time to move it, what precautions should I take when I do so, and what kind of shelter, direction, or situation would it most benefit from?
Many thanks for any help that you can give me
