Subject: Moving a mature Ginkgo tree


In order to provide room for access to a small housing 
development, there is
a proposal to move a mature Ginkgo tree about 2.5m.  The tree 
is probably 80
or more years old, has a  crown diameter of 9.8m, trunk 
diameter of 0.64,
and height of 16m.  There is a TPO on the tree. The proposal 
states a 2 year
preparation period for moving the tree during which the roots 
will be pruned
in segments.  A 5 year watering period has been included

Has any one experience in moving a Ginkgo of this size, or of 
other species
of comparable maturity?

What are the odds of this tree surviving?

Jeremy Wright
