organ pipe cactus relocation

Posted by Jesse53 az (My Page) on

I have a roughly 5 foot high, 4 foot in circumference organ pipe clump that is being crowded out by some kind of bush (don't know what bush is; new to AZ). I would like to relocate the entire clump elsewhere in the yard where it could grow without interference. Is this possible? If so, how do I do it? Thanks!

Nothing is impossible, but that isn't a job I would consider tackling. Lose the bush.

It would be very difficult to move the cactus. It is heavier than you can believe and you would probably end up breaking many of the pipes. As GermanStar suggested, I would remove the bush. The cactus is worth much more than any bush.
