A friend of mine has gorgeous grape vines 15+ years old. Chardonnay and another type- I forget now. His place is being demolished for new townhouse subdivision. I want to take one of the grape vines. How would I go about doing that? That base is very thick and woody. Can I just get a chain saw, and stump it at about a foot and plant that? Please help. such a shame that they will just get ploughed into a land fill. Also he has fig trees. Any one know anything about transplanting figs? I also have a posting regarding large apple tree moving. Under the fruit tree section. Thank you !! PS. I live in Vancouver BC Canada, and these vines will be destroyed by the end of April!!! HELP!!!
