Do you have a large tree or a huge bush that is starting to get in the way? Are you getting tired of dealing with the plant and are considering getting rid of it? When you have a troublesome plant, it's easy to think that it has to be cut down and completely removed from your yard. But that may not be the best solution. Instead, you may want to consider having the plant relocated elsewhere. Here are some reasons why you should consider doing this:
Additional income: Depending on whether the tree or bush that you want to get rid of is popular in your area, you could profit significantly by having a mature specimen to sell to someone. Not everyone is willing to wait years for a particular plant to grow, so medium to large healthy ones can cost quite a bit. You may even be able to get your buyer to pay for the actual plant relocation costs, thereby increasing the amount of money that you'll gain as a result of selling your tree or bush. Instead of having to deal with the hassle of pruning and trimming a plant that you dislike, you could have some extra pocket money to spend on something you actually want.
Save time: Perhaps you like the tree or bush, but it's simply in the wrong location in your yard. It's not uncommon for a homeowner to plant something, only to realize a few years later that the chosen spot isn't exactly ideal. If either you or the previous homeowners planted a tree or bush too close to the house or other landscape fixture, it may be possible to move it. If you were to have the plant cut down and then plant a new one elsewhere, you'd have to wait several years for the second plant to grow and mature to the same size as the one you have now. But by doing a simple plant relocation, you can have the exact same tree or bush placed in a more ideal location for you.
Preserve history: Sometimes, a tree or bush has a historical significance, so you don't want to kill it but you don't want to keep it where it is either. For example, you may love your great-grandmother's prize winning roses, but you hate that she planted them so far away from the house. Plant relocation can put these roses in a better spot so that you can enjoy them more fully.
