Hi,

We recently moved into a new house. We have several evergreens in the front yard. These two are growing too close together (there's actually a third smaller one that ill probably just cut down) and I'm thinking one needs to go so that the other can thrive. I also need trees in my backyard, so I'm thinking win/win. I'm looking for some advise. Will it be possible to transplant one of these without killing the other? Which should I move? How do I separate the roots? How big of a root ball do I need? Etc.....

The trunk diameter is about 4" for both trees
