The largest tree to be transplanted was an oak tree (Quercus lobata), aged 180–220 years and measuring 17.67 m (58 ft) tall, 31.6 m (104 ft) wide (branch-span), weighing approximately 415.5 tonnes (916,000 lb) and with a trunk girth of 5 m (16 ft 2 in). "Old Glory" was moved 0.4 km (0.25 miles) by Senna Tree Company (USA) to a new park in Los Angeles, California, USA, on 20 January 2004.
The tree was relocated due to a road-widening project, at the cost of $1 million (£500,000) and is still healthy and growing as of 11 November 2004.
Girth measurement taken at 1.3 m (4 ft 6 in) above the ground.
