Transplanting was followed by a reduction in growth in four deciduous tree species in Norway, but not in Rowan. After one season, Norway Maple, Horse Chestnut, Wild Cherry and and Common Lime ‘Pallida’ had shoot growth reduced by 38-86%, and leaf surface area by 13-61%. In the second season, shoot growth was reduced in Norway Maple by 71% and by 81% in Horse Chestnut, which did not return to normal growth in the third season.

Common Lime ‘Pallida’ – Tilia x europaea L. ‘Pallida’
Horse Chestnut – Aesculus hippocastanum L.
Norway Maple – Acer platanoides L.
Rowan – Sorbus aucuparia L.
Wild Cherry – Prunus avium L.
