Transplant Shock: Disease or Cultural Problem (PPFS-OR-W-19)

Trees and shrubs that are re-located from one growing site to another (e.g., from nursery to landscape) endure stress. If care is taken to minimize stress through proper transplanting techniques and maintenance, plants are likely to recover rapidly and become established in their new sites. Unfortunately, all too often, trees and shrubs suffer “transplant shock” from improper transplanting or maintenance, and recovery is hindered.

This publication addresses the symptoms and causes of transplant shock. Information on proper transplanting techniques to prevent transplant shock, as well as suggestions for reversing it, are also included.

Transplant Shock: Disease or Cultural Problem (PPFS-OR-W-19) is available online.
