Hey everyone. I have looked into companies that can ship my trees and found one. But not sure what to do? Should I leave them or take them? What would you do and why?

I guess it depends on where you're going, and how different that climate is from yours current one.
I wouldn't take my Japanese maples to Siberia, but maybe my spruces!

You never filled out your profile. You don't mention it in the thread. Or the location moving to. So...one can't offer any real advice on what was given. Depending on where your going. Quarantine costs $$$. Typically bare root and treated. (At least to get things from Honduras to the states. It wasn't worth bringing any material back home with me.) But depends on location as to what you will face.

I would just find more trees where I moved to live--unless of course your trees are worth thousands. Then I'd look into plant/animal importation rules for the country I'm moving to. Those rules vary tremendously from country to country.

It all depends really, I know I can move trees without restrictions(mostly) throughout the EU and even to a few places outside of it. I know that if we ever move to Australia I will basically have to kiss my trees goodbye.
If you are in Oman and going to another gulf state then maybe there are little to no restrictions, I can't say without knowing the destination.

Still how many trees do you have?

Thanks for the advice. Not that many trees. Only about 6 that I would take :)

Does anybody have any shipping company recommendations?

Most appreciated :)

Three main trees back to UK. :) Taped in boxes with packing polystyrene balls and shipped in 48 hours! Others stayed in Oman, grape vines were hard to leave but went to a great person there.
