Hey Brentsawyer.... the largest trees that we plant are 4". How much would a 6" tree in your area set me back. Also, what kind of trees are they.

You should know being in TN that trees that big pricewise can cost anywhere from $30-150 an inch in the ground you dig LOL. These trees were on the customers property so all we did was move them around. If we had to do all the work like was done, easily $2,500 if I had a place to dispose of the rock onsite, if not excess of $3,000. Did give them a price on some 5.5"-6" for $1,100/ea. pretty cheap when you have the trees in town and hire out spade to do all the work and there are 12 to be done. But one for a residential could fetch $2,500 or so. Those were Sugar Maples and he has about 40 of them that will eventuallly be moved to various places around his properties.

We were doing an install in September and the client wanted an add-on for a pond. They had originally scratched it from the design the day before.We started digging(40' patio in place, so we couldn't even get an MT 50 back there) two holes for 2 -2 1/2" cherry trees and the pond, and hit solid rock about 12" down. We had to use a jackhammer to get through the rock-all 18 inches of it.What a nightmare..If I can find the pics, I'll post one.
