Tree ID and transplanting advice please

Posted: 31/08/2014 at 17:35

Thanks everyone for such quick replies. I'll let BIL know he can 'rip' them out and not worry about me wanting them. Shame, I love a bargain, but not one which goes wrong and costs hassle and time.

Thanks Beaus mum, it's the photographer's time and willpower that's lacking

Ah, thanks welshonion. Waiting a season definitely won't work for my BILs plan. To be honest, he's probably not keen on holding him up for a week or two as he wants to get everything 'ripped' out asap.

(The cost of buying locally at a cost of £40 approx. per tree (however I would be able to choose what I wanted) would be much more expensive than a day's pick up truck hire, which is why I am keen to try).

Hi all, quiet weekend didn't materialise! Friday leaving do after work, driving then home for wine. Saturday Aloe Vera house party thing, driving then home for wine, Today BILs to see new house and wish niece happy birthday, then again home for wine.

BIL is taking out 4 trees from his new garden - of course all on my want list. As he's 60 miles away and wants to get them out so he can turf in the next few weeks it's gonna be tricky to organise. not sure how well trees will transplant, how spread and deep the roots will be or even what the trees are! Have put a few pics on a new thread so please have a look. Gave OH instructions to take photos and close ups of leaves, errr yeah right, see the thread - I'll be lucky not to get laughed and sneared at for IDs!!!! Still hopefully worth the price of a hire lorry than 4 trees from GC and delivery charge.

Not looked back but I see Fairy's been hard at it again, made of girders trhese scots (maybe you can come dig out some trees for me FG?)

Firstly, apologies for the picture quality, and lack of detail, I left the photography to someone else without competent instructions! There are 4 trees I'd like to transplant from brother in laws garden to mine. The 4 from the left (not including the silver birch). any help on ID and whether it will be worth digging them out and hiring a truck for a 120mile round trip please.    

The last tree is a sorbus with pink berries.
