In order to provide room for access to a small housing development,

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
of comparable maturity?

What are the odds of this tree surviving?

Do you have any idea of the proposed budget?

If not, could you put me in touch with the proposers, please?

It would be very interesting to know from a (CTLA) tree valuation point of view

I have a record of 35 k being spend on moving a strawberry tree
