What Does It Take To Move A 10-Story Tree A Couple Of City Blocks?

An aerial view of the sequoia in Boise, Idaho, as workers prepared to transport it about two blocks. Heavy machinery had to be used to prune its roots and build a structure so they could move the roughly 100-foot tree, which was planted back in 1912.

That answer, as seen Sunday in Boise, Idaho: $300,000 and a lot of determination. St. Luke’s Health System, which moved the historic sequoia, says it “was never even an option” to cut it down.
