I dug several native oaks (I live in N. Michigan) yesterday b/c they were free and going to be destroyed due to construction. Nice trees, good taper and root spreads, but I'm concerned about keeping them alive given that they were dug in August. I don't have much experience with oaks. Should I just throw them back in the ground, should I try to get them in boxes, can I truck chop or prune (they need both -- eventually), etc. The growing season up here is quickly coming to a close and our winters are long and snowy. I wouldn't worry so much about them if it were a little later in the year or earlier. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
