I’ve moved this poor tree three times. I was sure that the third time it would give up the ghost, but it held on and is doing great. I have no further plans to move it! Its current home is very dry in the summer with poor soil – the tree looks great anyway, but its growth is pretty minimal which seems to be the only side effect.
