June 6, 2012 | Ghirardi Compton Oak Lifted, Moved to New Location | League City

After a huge effort, League City’s 100 year old Ghirardi Compton Oak has been lifted out of the ground, transported and replanted 1500 feet away, in a water smart park.  Crews worked diligently to dig the tree up, two cranes to lift the massive tree and place it on a steel plate for transporting, three excavators and two dozers to move it. 

The lift, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday morning but was postponed after the contractor, Hess Landscape Construction, decided that larger and stronger I-beams were needed to successfully raise the more than 500,000 pound tree. About 65 feet tall and 110 feet wide, this tree proved to be a massive undertaking. Take a look at Talk of the Bay to see the ‘tree move in action’.
