    Oak Wilt transferred via dirty saw chain kills it. BF Tree transferred via BF Helicopter (very expensive) cures the loss.

    You ignored my questions and keep parroting what you've said previously. I'm going to say this and then I want to leave me the FK alone.

    What is written and what is not can at times be just as important. Nuance, inference, concepts, they diminish the need to have to write exhaustive, formal highly detailed thesis covering every conceptual, factual, and hypothetical matter of relevance. Your perception that hispanic played no part in my commentary was your opinion. A flawed opinion.

    What would motivate you to interject yourself into a conversation by attacking and derailing a thread over the use of one, single word. Wasnt derogatory, used offensively, it described an element of those involved in a factual descriptive manner. And it is relevant for a number of reasons.

    I still have my original mensa card and and current member ID card. I'll be more than happy to PM an image of both to give you an idea of who i am.i have no cognitive issues other than impatience.

    my only response would be white crack head is a defined group among one race where as the way you originally posted your first post it implied that all people of one race are something.

    Tough to do but some large oaks can be moved/transplanted.

    Here is one in Buda that made a trip last year. Bet it cost easily the above amount.

    Does make you wonder if it is still alive though?

    What are the chances the tree survives?

    Very good. The survival rate of trees the company has moved is 98 percent, Cox said. It takes a couple years for a tree to get fully established in its new environment. The trees have to be monitored for their moisture level and given fertilization to make sure they thrive.


    As with any with any pruning, transplanted trees are often healthier than other old trees because their roots have had a chance to regenerate and are shorter, meaning there’s less distance for water to have to travel, Cox said.

    Oldest tree Environmental Design has ever moved? Bristle cone pines in Colorado that were more than 2,000 years old.

    Largest tree the company has ever moved? 1.3 million pounds.

    Farthest the company has ever moved a tree? On boat from South China to Dubai.

    I thought so too. Those guys have a seemingly impossible task down to an absolute science. 98% success? Amazing.
