transplant hazelnut tree
Hello! I have a neighbor who has a hazelnut tree that she doesn't want anymore and wants to give it to us to grow in our yard. The tree is 10 or 12 feet tall and does produce nuts. I've read that hazelnut trees have very deep roots, and I don't want to take the tree if it doesn't have a good chance of survival. We don't have any heavy-duty tree tools, just a few big shovels. Any advice as to whether or nor transplanting this is a good idea would be much appreciated, as well as any tips for transplanting. Thank you!
