    Any alabama locals know where I can rent or pay someone to spade about 18 trees.

    I need to remove 15 mature multi trunk crepe myrtles (3" cal each trunk) and 3 magnolia trees with a 6"-8" cal and about 20' tall. The myrtles will be removed and loaded on a trailer, the magnolia trees will be dug and moved to another location in the same lawn.

    Below is a picture of the magnolias TBM.

    I know the Davey Tree Expert Co. has tree spades. They were actually featured on the history channel's mega machines or somethin like that recently. I would definatly find out the nearest branch office and give them a call.

    you dont need a spade that big for those trees lol. Daveys takes out 40 foot trees lol.

    You could always rent a skid loader and the spade attachment and do it your self :waving:
