I have 4 Manchurian pear trees which I don’t want and are about 4m high. Does anyone know can you sell trees and if so how do you go about it? I don’t have any way of digging them out and wondered has anyone sold trees and got the buyer to remove them? Can you sell pear trees? Thank you.

  • You can sell anything these days.

  • They can probably be transplanted, but it would be very expensive.

  • They are huge! Not sure if just anyone can remove them at that size. You would need a professional tree remover to remove them I would think and then sell them ASAP. Or sell them and then have them dug up

  • they are pretty big to be moving, i think you would need a professional.

  • Interested to know how you went with your pear trees?

  • I would call a nursery for advice; they should have contacts.

  • of curse you can :) just advertise pear trees for sale buyer must remove themselves.

  • The nursery might even be interested in buying them if they know somebody who is looking for some established ones. They may also be able to tell you the best time to transplant them. You may have a better chance of selling them close to that time

  • You may like to try Gumtree (second hand buy/sell website ) as there are many plants and garden items that people sell on there.

  • I always see trees being sell on our local buy and sell facebook pages. They often state that you have to dig them out too.

  • I never would have thought of insurance, but I guess it is important if they are in difficult area to remove.

  • I agree with Kajoy on calling a nursery. if you’re having the buyer remove them you may also want to stipulate that they have suitable insurance in case of damage to people or property. Good luck.

  • I would ring a nursery to find out all the essential things, then put them on gumtree and state the buyer is responsible for their removal
