Moving evergreens

We have several 10 - 15 year old ornamental evergreens on what we thought was our lot line. The tallest of the bunch is probably fifteen feet in height.

Guess what? The developer that brought up the property next to us had it surveyed, then informed us if we wanted to save the trees, we'd have to buy the lot next door!

Can anyone tell me if these trees can be successfully moved? They are going to be bulldozed if I don't!

Yes they can be moved, but you may want to hire a professional to do it. The root ball required to maintain a 15 foot tall evergreen, would be quite heavy. It could be in excess of 500 lbs depemding on the type of tree. If you want to forget about the larger trees, and move some of the smaller ones, Email me with the specifics, Size, type...ect, and I can walk you thru the process.
