I found a large olive tree in my area available, but the thing is so large I question whether it can be moved cost-effectively. What would a tree like the one in the photo (probably 30+ feet wide in the canopy) cost to move 10 miles? Assume workers and trucks have easy access to the planting area. What are the odds that the tree would die in spite of best efforts to extract it? Would any special preparations need to be made in the planting area, other than sizing the planting hole correctly?
