Tree Transplanting

Who knew we'd become experts on tree transplantation?!

One stipulation in the variance we received from Borough was that we can't cut down any trees. This meant that for the land development we would need to transplant a whole bunch of trees. 9 needed to be dug up and moved out of the way of construction that's being planned. 

So a few weeks ago and thousands of dollars later, we had 9 trees dug up and moved to the back of the property until we will be ready to transplant them. The head of the Shade Tree Commission commented on how well a job we had done. No surprise! We plan on the entire project being done with the same high quality! Here are some pictures.
