I believe I know the answer to this, but I'm going to ask hoping someone tells me what I wish I could hear. A customer no longer wants their dogwood tree which is located close to their home. They want it taken out and gotten rid of. We want it for our own. I do not know the caliper, but it is not a huge tree. To dig around the root ball would require some work and Matt would need an extra pair of hands. There wouldn't be much profit in removing this tree this way, but we wouldn't be in it for profit, only for the tree which is a very fine specimen. When can this tree be transplanted with a chance of living? I believe the answer is when the tree is dormant with no leaves on it, probably sometime in March. The customer will not want to wait that long, and the tree would just have to be cut. Is there any way possible way this tree could survive a transplant now?
