    I live in southeast PA. and am looking to sub out work to a company that can move a 5 1/2 foot tall, 5 foot wide, roughly 15 year old split leaf maple. The ball would probably be 4-5 feet across. There are 8 arbovitaes about 10-12 ft tall and 4-5 feet wide along with a couple smaller shrubs that need to be moved as well. Easy access, flat. All to be tranplanted on site within 50 feet of original spot. Much have good creditials.

    Any referrals would be great.

    I know of an excellent company in mid Maryland. They have the largest tree spade on the East Coast, but you don't need one that big. Let me know if you want their number.

    Someone else mentioned Aradar to me. If you have their number let me know, I'll see if they are in the book.

    Lanelle, thanks for the reply. Mid Maryland may be a bit too far and like you said, I don't need one that big.
