This shock is mainly caused by root loss during transplanting - trees can lose 90 percent or more of their roots when they are dug - and results in smaller foliage for at least one growing season and reduced shoot length and diameter growth for several seasons. Recovery from transplant shock takes about one year for each inch of trunk diameter for an...

However, intermediate types are common and although some trees are typically shallow-rooted and others deep-rooted the depth of penetration...

Its main home is the Mediterranean region, and it is an evergreen adapted to a climate of mild wet winters and hot dry summers.
