i have some green giants that were planted about 1 1/2 years ago that i am thinking of moving around my property a bit. they are about 9 - 10 feet tall now. i am concerned about their survival and the cost to move them. anyone have experience moving trees like this? i have a good landscaper that im guessing will come with his crew of mexican guys and dig them up and dig a new hole to put them in. i imagine that is probably my least expensive route.

I don't know what a green giant is.

In general, moving large plants is a specialty, and does not come cheap.

yeah, i guess i shouldnt have assumed that was obvious. they are pretty popular around here. i clearly shouldnt have put them in yet because future plans now make the present location undesirable. ill have my guy come give me a quote next week so ill know more soon but i am curious what to expect on price and risks.
