"Guerrilla gardening is political gardening, a form of nonviolent direct action, primarily practiced by environmentalists. It is related to land rights, land reform, and permaculture. Activists take over ("squat") an abandoned piece of land which they do not own to grow crops or plants. Guerrilla gardeners believe in re-considering land ownership in order to reclaim land from perceived neglect or misuse and assign a new purpose to it."
This is a guide to how I planted my first guerilla tree and everything I used in order to get it to this new location.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
a camera phone
an open field
a place to steal a tree from
and of course... Common sense.
Step 2: Find Some Trees and a Place to Move Them.
If you can't just pull the sapling out, use a spade or shovel to loosen up the dirt around the tree. If you cannot transplant the tree immediately find a shady spot to set it in until you can move it.
Step 3: Prepare to Transplant.
Go out on a nice night that you can still see by the moonlight or on a part of the day when most of the surrounding houses are busy inside and take everything with you.
Get to your digging site and set the tree on it's side and camelbak out of the way. Using your shovel, dig out the first layer of grass, keep this to the side. Dig down far enough into the ground to cover up the roots, about 8-9 inches was good for me.
Set your tree in the hole and push back in most of the dirt that you shoveled out. Pack in the grass that you set aside in order to support the tiny tree.
Pick up the camelbak and pour out all of the water onto your new tree, it will need it.
