transplanting conifers

Postby TASBEL » Fri Jan 02, 2009 1:03 pm

I was wondering the best was to transplant conifers? I have the following conifer (not sure on name) Image And we are planning on putting a driveway through where it is located. I would hate to just cut it down.

Also does anyone know if people would want a plant like this in tassie? If so where would be the best place to advertise?

I believe it is one of the cypresses, but not sure which one.

With regards to advertising, find your local freecycle group ( and work your way down the list) or advertise it as a give away in your local weekend shopper liftout. We have quite a few Tasmanian members so they should be able to help you further.

Welcome to the forums - you have a lovely view.
