A wonderful idea & hobby.I live in the lower sandhills of N.C..I love the Dogwoods that grow wild here but my green thumb has turned (?)so I have no luck transplanting them.I learned early on to transplant in the late winter to early,early spring and never put a tree in a .50 cent hole and do try to use the natural mulch for all trees.I do try to plant trees out along the 12ac. perimeter so at some point the next owner wont have to deal with too much removal.One thing I might add ,,,little trees grow up to be big trees thus never put them to interfere with power or water & sewer lines.If there is a "certain area" you enjoy I would say do not plant to block the view.Hope your "green thumb"last a long time. Njoy!
