It's very clear to me....you will not safely move this plant. It's too big and too old. Ok, you may surprise us but surprise us you will if it survives.
I cut Darwinii down to 4' from about 15' some 3 years ago for a friend. It was obstructing a gateway. My intention was to kill it really.....my friend will not "kill" anything.....then replace it with a camellia. I thought 50/50 chance of surviving. it is thriving.....much to the delight of my friend but to my disappointment.
Darwinii is a common plant......seeds everywhere so you might see seedlings in your garden Mark......so I would buy a replacement.
