Monster Yamadori Hawthorn Taproot Treatment

Post  mrcasey on Tue Dec 24, 2013 6:13 am

Last spring, I used a back hoe to dig up a very large hawthorn. The tree was planted in a
grow bed. The trunk measures over 9" in diameter. My problem is that the tree has a gigantic
bulbous taproot. The thing must be over 12" wide. It extends, maybe, 18" below the nebari.
Can I just take a chainsaw and cut the thing off beneath the surface roots? Would I need to
apply cut paste to the large cut surface area below ground?

Hi Mrcasey

If the surfaceroots are strong enough to support the tree, would I cut off the taproot in a nice clean cut, as the hawthorn soon will form some roots along the cutline of the taproot.

If your tree look like this

go to page 5, will it not be a problem I should think...this tree is today in a pot of the right sice.

Kind regards yvonne
