Relocate mature cedar tree

Asked August 18, 2015, 4:09 AM EDT

We have two mature cedar trees and one Picea pungens Hopsii planted on our property (planted on this place before 10 years and they are more than 15 years old) . We must relocated them till the end of august.

I would appreciate any ideas you have on this subject. - What to do to enable them to survive.

Thank you in advance

Transplanting large trees is a big task and can be difficult to do successfully. I've provided some publications that will help guide you through the process.
