Please could you let me know if it is possible to move a white lilac tree, which is about 10 metres tall. All research so far seems to refer to moving lilac bushes but this is a fully grown lilac tree with a sizeable trunk. We are looking to get an extension on the property but I love the tree so much,,,,



Hi Figgywiggy and welcome to GoY. I think you have to decide whether you want the extension or the 10 metres it is going to be impossible to move.

You probably could get a specialist to do it but as its a very expensive operation with no guarantee of success you've got to ask, is it worth it?
