Due date
Tuesday, 25th Sep 2018
We are having our deck extended and these trees are scheduled to be chopped down as part of that process. We would like to attempt to reuse 5 lilly pilli trees, currently growing as a hedge 2.3m high. We are advised Lilly pillies have a shallow root sydstem.
They are growing in Noosa sand, We have a few gaps in our remaining privacy screen and would like to fill in the gaps with these trees. 5 new holes will need to be dug and prepared with soil & mulch (provided). Old trees will need to be dug out with as much root ball as possible, and transplanted immediately. NOTE we do not have the tools required for tree removal or hole digging, you would need to provide, ie spade,mattock, pruning saw etc.

Hi Stephen,
I would like to do this job for you. I have 20 yrs garden experience and have transplanted many trees in that time. Your lilly pillies will require a good cut to make up for the root loss, but believe with my experience I will get them off to a good new start. Offer is for 6hrs work and anything over can be sorted with you when completing job. I have all of my own tools. I would like to inspect the trees before sorting a day to complete job.
Kind regards.

Hi Kim,
Thanks for your speedy offer. I would like to accept and I can help you with the work, so we might get it done in 6 hrs, if not happy to pay for extra time. This is the first time we have used Airtasker, so not sure how this all works. Regards Steve & Sue
