moving a robinia tree

I have a 2 year old robinia tree in my front garden which i would like to move to the back garden, is this possible without killing this gorgeous tree.



I suspect that it depends on its size. You need to prepare the planting hole well first, then dig a trench away from your tree. Then lift it out with forks onto a sack or a large piece of tarpaulin with as much rootball as you can. Plant it immediately and water it. Feed it in the spring.

Good luck!
