How and when to move trees with Oenosan calcium carbonate?

The best period is when the trees lose their leaves. So this is from October to December.

How do we use Oenosan to obtain the best results?

  • The day before we give the tree sufficient water.
  • When excavating, we ensure that the young roots remain intact so that they can fulfill their function in absorbing water and of course Oenosan.
  • Afterwards we pack the root ball firmly into root cloth or agricultural film.
  • When moving, we make sure that the trunk is not damaged. This is important!
  • We dig a planting hole with the correct depth. We are already applying a part of Oenosan lime fertilizer to the soil.
  • Then we spread the roots, put the tree in the planting hole and apply Oenosan again on the roots. In the pictures above you can see how this works. Then we fill in with the excavated earth and we tamp it down well. We use 200 gr of lime fertilizer per 100 L of soil. If in doubt, you can always download our user manual here.
