Moving mature dwarf fruit trees
I have a 5"-6" diameter semi-dwarf apple tree that is in the way. I would like to move it as it is a very productive tree. I am looking for suggestions related to root pruning, top pruning and time of year for moving. I have access to heavy machinery, such as mini excavators for trenching around the tree, and a large wheel loader for moving the tree with root ball to a nearby location. Any advise would be appreciated.
