Transplanting established lilac

Asked July 17, 2015, 2:15 PM EDT

I have a hedge of old (over 30 years) lilac bushes that I would like to move. Is this possible? Can I break the roots and still have the shrub survive? I have very little space to work and do not have the option to did very deep because of other tree roots.

St. Louis County Minnesota lilac bushes

should not be a problem, if they have moisture, they should have no problem re-growing.
