Q.Moving of Umbrella Pine

We have a lovely 30 foot umbrella pine that is too close to the house. We would like to move it to another location. What type of location does it like, sunny, shady or partial?

I might suggest that when moving trees, one needs to dig 10'' rootball for each 1'' diameter of the trunk. A tree with a 3'' trunk should have a rootball dug at least 30'' wide...or greater.
