Pensacola, Fl. Hurricane Ivan took our hundred year old oaks lining the 10 ft wide right of way. How large a tree can be transplanted? Our hundred year old house looks barren. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Luckily you are in a part of the state where you have growers and nurseries nearby. Here's an interesting link for you that should answer your question.

Be sure to watch the movie.

I have seen where very old oaks have been trucked in to a development near where I used to live. I don't know if they make it but it's a common practice.

WOW, wish I had the money to get them to bring me a couple of 'large trees'. Guess I will just have to wait for my small ones to grow.
