Do you think I can successfully transplant Tiger Eye Sumac?

Some plants are easier to transplant than others.

For your Tiger Eye Sumac, you could do it in the fall or wait until spring. First, dig the new hole. Then, get an empty bucket ready for the sumac you are about to dig up. Water the base of the sumac to help hold the dirt together. When digging, go out a little ways and as deep as necessary to get as many roots as possible with the root ball. Place the shrub with the root ball into the bucket. Or, if it isn’t too large, just keep the sumac in the shovel and move it to the new home. Pack in dirt around the roots. Water and mulch and it should be good to go.
