Yesterday, we relocated a Bradford Pear tree in our backyard.
We planted the tree a little over 3 years ago. Now, we have decided to build a garage/storage building in this area (to provide a home for the 1025R).
So, we could have cut the tree down (the logical approach), spent $25 on a new small tree to plant in a new location and moved on to another project.
However, this would not have been any fun. We wouldn't have been able to use the 1025R for anything significant. So, this plan was quickly thrown out, and replaced with the more complicated plan of moving the tree to a new home on the other side of the yard.
My daughter (Katriel) was the videographer for this project, so if you choose to watch, you will get some "quality" (or at least entertaining) narration.
Unfortunately, neighbor Bob (age 87) is out of town for the weekend, so he didn't get to participate in this project. I'm sure he will be disappointed when he sees the fun he has missed.
