Answer: This is really unfortunate. Dogwoods do not transplant well, especially older well established trees like this. They have a shallow root system that spreads very wide. On a tree that size the root ball will be large and heavy and would need professional equipment to dig it. I would suggest you consult on site with a professionally trained and certified arborist with experience in moving ornamental trees and see what they say. Too, if you really like the tree, it might be less expensive to have the line re-routed. Good luck!
