I have been asked to move three multi-stemed Himalayan Birch (one is 3 mtrs, and the other two are 4.5mtrs. The smaller tree was planted two years ago, and the larger two have been planted for 4/5 years) for a customer. One I moved the smaller tree today as I had the digger and dumper on site, I know it is getting on in the season for moving stock. Has anyone had any experience in replanting birch trees and what was the outcome?
Cheers for the replys lads.
Its the case of the trees being replanted or cut down. The owner wants them out, either cut down or replanted, as the customer is concerned that the trees are too close to the house, and one of them sits adjacent to a soak-a-way / drain, and there are concerns as to possible structural damange further down the line.
I am currently putting a new garden in for them, in an other area within the estate. As there will be diggers and telehandlers on site over the next month, this is the only time available to try and replant these trees.
I have one out, but need a bigger digger to remove the other two.
