Besides, how do you dig up a cedar tree?
Cut the trunk down to the ground with a chain saw or ax and clear away the main wood debris from the area so you can begin work on removing the main root ball and larger roots. Dig down into the soil around the root ball in a circular pattern until you can get your shovel under the edge of the main root ball.

Simply so, when can you transplant wild cedar trees?
It can grow 80 feet high or higher with a 20 to 40 foot spread, so it may need to be moved if it appears to be outgrowing its current location. It is best to transplant cedars while they are dormant in the early spring or late fall. This will reduce the stress on the tree and increase its odds of survival.
How big a tree can be moved?
Shrubs up to 3 feet tall and trees an inch or less in diameter (measured 6 inches above the soil level) can be moved without digging a solid root ball. These and most plants 3 to 4 years old may be moved as bare root transplants. Larger or older plants will need to be dug and transplanted with the root ball intact.
