Anybody have experience finding grant resources to assist with relocation of a large heritage/specimen tree? We're building a new city hall, library & public safety building. We managed to avoid all of the great trees on the site except for one... a 53" diameter live oak. It is a beautiful tree, and I've been tasked with identifying funding resources that might assist in funding its relocation. Any thoughts?

Sounds like a good opportunity for a Save The Tree party with a beer garden and some BBQ. :beers::D

We were able to get some help saving saguaros in Arizona, but the groups only worked with endangered cacti. Maybe one of the nurseries would be willing to take it and sell it for a little PR or something?
