    Selling trees from my garden 18th Mar 17 at 9:22 AM
    Hi all. I have 4 established hazel trees and a very large shrub in my garden that I want to get rid of I'm thinking of selling them. Just wondering where ? Has anyone done the same thing ? Any advice would be appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    You can't sell them alive, as they'll die when they are dug up. The small, barely visible filament-like roots are what keeps the plant alive, and they will be lost and damaged when the trees are uprooted.

    Once they are dug up they'll be good for firewood as they will almost certainly die.
