First we have to decide if we are talking about moving trees
on the same property, or moving trees from one location to
another. If we are moving trees on site, the cost per tree
is considerably less based on truck time. If we are moving
trees from one location to another we need to consider travel
time and highway driving versus city driving. Other things
to consider would be the type of tree (evergreens take more
time because of the lower bottom branches), and size of tree.
We have three different size treespade machines. Each treespade
moves different size trees based on trunk diameter and species.
Certain species are more sensitive to transplant, and we prefer
to oversize the rootball whenever possible.
