I live in a 50+ year old home in the Baltimore, Maryland area and I inherited a wonderful fig tree from the former owners. We have pruned it and cared for it and it is producing abundant and tasty fruit. It is currently about 12-15 feet tall.
The problem is that we are considering an addition to the house in the next year or two and the fig tree is right in the way.
I was wondering if now would be a good time to replant some or all of it to another location in my yard. It is somewhat spread out and it appears the there are at least two large offshoots from the main trunk which could possibly be seperated and replanted. I thought I could try two different locations to see which one does best.
I would hate to lose it, especially since I just learned how to make an amazing strawberry-fig jam. So any knowledgable advice would be appreciated.
