Might that have been 'Civic trees'  ?

I remember once seeing a presentation at LTOA meeting by a company that
specialised in such large tree moving.

I have no idea what the company was called but they had loads of big
machines and it looked good.

Perhaps the LTOA could help it was about 3/4 years ago I think Chris
Neelan was doing his presentation of a tree evaluation system.

Hope that helps

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?
