Can I Move Planted Christmas Tree Elsewhere
We have a well established, lovely Christmas tree planted in front of the house. Trouble is, it has grown quite tall and blocking out light to the house. We are considering just cutting it down but that seems such a shame, so we are investigating to see if we can move it somewhere else in the garden. Can you please advise us on how we may be able to succesfully move the tree? It'll be a shame to lose it.
