    I will be moving an Indian Hawthorne that is about 20 years old. It is about 6' tall and about 6' wide. I will be replanting this plant in another location in the same yard. I was thinking of pricing this at about $200.00 plus root stimulator. What do you think....to high or to low. How good are the chances the plant will survive?

    Thanks

    Your price is alittle low to me. I would prob charge $100-$150 just to remove it. I think closer to $350 would be fair.

    How long do you expect it to take you to move? I would think with prep time it would take at least 3-4 hours.

    I was planning on using shovels and a lot of digging. Do you have any good ideas on making this job easer?

    Thanks

    It would be easier sub it to a tree spade and more professional.
