I have an area on the hill I want to protect against water eroding the soil. I will be putting large rocks there, but I also wanted to put some plants to reinforce soil with plant roots. I have a lot of cedars on my property and was thinking about transplanting some to areas I need to reinforce.
Will this work? What is the largest size tree I should be transplanting? How big hole and a ball I need to make? Any other tips?
