Two mature trees had to be moved into the adjacent Pennington Gardens if the new stands at the famous Adelaide Oval were going to be built. A 100 year old Fastigiate Irish Yew and a 50 year old Bull Bay Magnolia were successfully relocated with 5m and 3m root balls respectively. The Yew was moved without suffering even a crack in the root ball by using a series of steel beams inserted beneath its root ball. It was a spectacular site seeing the 25 tonne tree lifted over other trees and ‘flying with the light towers for a moment. With our regular care both trees are doing very well after 4 years.
