How to Transplant a Really Big Tree

There's always lots of construction going on around us. Here's a little slideshow we I made to share with "budding" construction workers.



(Not so thrilled with Picasa, but crossing my fingers that this works in your browser the way it does on mine.) Enjoy!

Awesome! Great pictures to tell the story. I'm impressed that you were able to chronicle it so completely. The boys must have loved watching.

Awesome. My boys have a book with that kind of a truck in it. I've read it HOW many times? And yet I cannot come up with the name of the big-tree-scoopy device for this comment. Weak.

Great pics though!

Ooh.. if you find the name, I'd love to know. I'd never seen one of these before. Which is probably why I paid attention in the first place.

That is so cool! I've never seen one of those before. What a neat thing to see.

On YouTube there are a lot of videos of this kind of vehicle, where it is called a "tree spade truck. " There may be a more technical or fanciful name for it, but "tree spade truck" is really descriptive, practical, and hopefully easy for kids to remember and understand. On second thought, 4 year-old boys are great at pronouncing lengthly, impossible dinosaur names if they love dinosaurs, so maybe the search should continue.
