The same considerations should be made when considering relocation of a tree as planting of a tree. Other things to think about is if there is ample space for a large and heavy truck to maneuver around the tree. Underground utilities are a major concern therefore all electric, gas, water and phone sources are located before moving can occur.

Thinking of relocating a tree

Make sure you choose a spot that is far enough away from standing structures such as a house, shed, garage or driveway. Trees should be given ample space to grow to their full height and should not be planted too close to each other. Consider how much shade and water your tree will receive throughout the seasons.
