Extra Sun For Trees

Post  clint1982 on Sun Sep 13, 2009 11:07 am

In my yard where I keep my trees they get about three hours of full sun and then about one hour of dappled sunlight. I have to leave the trees on that sideof my house when Im at work as my dogs arnt very carefull around my trees. On the weekend when Im home I can move them out to get more sun and keep an eye on them.My question is, is it worth while moving all my trees for two days extra sun or am I wasting my time.

How many and what kind of trees? Generally, the more sun the better, but a couple of days of extra sun each week may not make much difference.

If the leaves are small and the color good, I wouldn't go to all that trouble -- though you might want to consider building a fenced-in bonsai garden at some point.

Clint, that doesn't seem like a whole lot of sunlight, but if they trees look good it's probably enough.

With over one hundred trees it certainly sounds like it's time for them to get some dedicated space. I set up my benches this summer and have never been happier with my trees. Wink

Good luck,
Ed
