>>625613 For the average person maybe. OP clearly has some dough rolling around and is looking to blow it.
My suggestion is that after he has a crew of excavators painstakingly dig out all the roots, he hires a fleet of helicopters to transport it to his desired place. Maybe one Chinook will do, I can't be bothered to look up the max slight load weight for one, but I'd imagine in could do it.
>>626151 This cat knows what's up. He deals with trees all the fucking time. So, Arborist, about how deep does the taproot go on a ~70' pine? I ask because I don't know shit about trees except how to use them for purposes. No idea regarding the details of their growth. Not OP, in case you were curious; just an interested passer-by.
>>625513 Don't listen to all these Mexicants telling you no way.
I know the transport company that did this oak. (they just drove the tree, different company does the digging). They do huge trees somewhat often. Of course, the transports only go about 3 mph so you better have a big tree in mind close by. And be prepared to shell out beaucoup bucks.
If you're truly serious (but I don't think you are): www.treemover.com (obviously)
>>626227 first, no way thats 70 feet tall. Second that could not get under a single powerline or bridge . You might move a tree a few miles in the country but I wager that tree never left some ranchers property.
>>625513 >Does anyone know where I can find a quote to buy, move, and plant a *fully* grown 70ft pine tree?
There's an episode of This Old House where the homeowner wanted to move a full size tree from his old house to his new one and the arborists brought in a truck mounted tree spade, which is kinda like a huge ass Battlemech-type "claw" that digs into ground around the tree and extracts it whole, root ball and all;
>>626233 >I wager that tree never left some ranchers property. I'd wager you are wrong. As I said, I work with the people that did this and lived very close to where this happened. It went a mile to two down US 90 in Louisiana. They dropped powerlines, highway shut down etc etc.
Point is though, if you have realistic expectations (and enough money), you likely can do something like this.
Of course, like I also said, I doubt OP is truly serious. In any case, OP likely won't have the cash. This cost $300,000 (of your tax dollars - but thats a different discussion)
>>626433 >Wtf why? How is one tree worth all that money and effort? Like the guy seemed to hint, it was probably a tax deduction so it likely didnt really leave the guy (or his business) out of pocket. Also, look at that fucking tree, its gorgeous and fully grown
>>626433 Anon, when you want to suck some dick you don't make a baby, feed it, clothe it, school it, rear it and guide it through life until it's 15 and then suck its dick. You go out and find one that's already grown and groom it and bring it home and suck it off. Much faster and easier.
>>626512 No no, it was the Louisiana DOT that did this not a person. It was a historical tree for some reason (I used to joke that General Lee took a nap under it or some such thing) that was going get to bulldozed for a new road.
