Pick, Shovel, Prybar - think your transplanting is tough?

digit(ID/WA)October 26, 2012

I've come to understand that the clay in some parts of the RMG region makes for a difficult time for folks uprooting and moving trees.

How would you like to take on the task that faced a crew in League City, Texas?

Altho' the tree isn't "out of the woods yet" - the most recent news is that it is doing fine. (link)

I think this is a testament of how important landscaping and its elements are that a town would go to this much work and spend that much money to preserve the tree.
