    Interesting, surprised they didn't chop back the canopy to the diameter of the reduced root ball, so it may suffer a fair bit whilst settling in. I have arranged quite a few big tree translocations, some do not recover unfortunately, especially after spending up to $350K to move them .

    Would have thought it would be better for the tree to move it while it was in its dormant phase.
    Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and Im not so sure about the universe.
