If you want to get rid of them I'd take some. I have not wanted to buy one as they are marginally hardy in my area. Not sure how I would get them though...

Great ingenuity, and great looking tree. I am curious who or how many dug the hole? Is that a chipper/mulcher on the unit in the background?
Be safe

Yes, that's my M59 shredder mounted on the 1000 QL, works good!
Digging that hole was not an issue.
I learned how to handle a shovel l at an early age! Ha Ha!
Was a bigger PITA digging the tree out from where it had grown and getting straps under and around in order to hoist it out of the ground and not loose all the dirt from the root ball.

Year #6 and still looking good!

Wish I could say as much for the yard!
Been really dry here this spring and we are -3+ inches precip under last year and were -6" from the year before that last year. Plus I failed to get broadleaf down last year as well.

What area of the country are you in? My parents had quite a few red bud trees when they lived in Indiana, but they have moved up to Michigan's upper peninsula near me, and my mom has been checking local nurseries for one or two to plant. They tell her they will survive here, but her nor i, have ever noticed one up here.

I tried Red bud trees in SE Mn and didn't have any luck. Died off and came back from the root and the 2nd year died completely. But the winters are warmer now. Maybe I should try again.
