When To Transplant Christmas Tree And Will Dead Parts Fill Back In

Question From: C. Messina - West Babylon, New York, United States
Q: We planted a potted Christmas tree in front of house where shrub would go. It is turning brown on back side. If I move it so it gets sun on all sides when should I do this and will the dead part fill back in

A: You can plant the tree now. Sadly the browned areas will not green up. Be sure to keep the tree well watered after planting. Best Nancy
