I moved 20 12-15' Spruce in June with a tow behind spade, 4 miles one way, and it took about an hour round trip with my big tractor. I charged $350 a day for the spade rental, and $70/hr for the tractor. It doesn't take long to spade them, but it sounds like your best bet would be to either ball and burlap or wire basket, or get a trailer for carrying root balls. If you can rent a spade on a truck, it might work ok to transport each one individually, the one I had was to heavy to tow behind a truck. No matter what you do it's going to take time. Hope this helps. These are Canadian funds
