Tree planting is more than digging a hole and sticking a tree in it.
The hole itself is even important and the things you add to the hole can make the difference between a thriving tree and a weak one that does not grow well. Tree planting of very young trees is not as tricky and can often be just a matter of breaking the soil and dropping in a sapling. This is the way much reforestation is done in parks and areas that have been logged. Thousands of young trees will be dropped into the ground and replace trees that have been taken. Each year new trees are added making a forest in many stages.
If you are thinking of moving a larger tree you will need to consider a few more things. It will need to be handled carefully and the root ball bagged and kept moist between tree planting. The large the tree is the more planning will be needed for tree planting. The weight of it alone will be a consideration and how you will manage it must be preplanned. If you have the option you will find selecting young trees before they are too large the easiest way to landscape your yard.
There are trucks and special digging and lifting machines for tree planting and relocation of very large trees. Some people prefer to move mature trees into their landscape plan for an instant finished look to their yard. The hole it will be placed in will need to be large enough and well laced with any additives to help the tree recover from the shock of moving.
