My friend Frank bought a honey locust for his back yard and we planted it yesterday. He and Molly and I went to pick it up and luckily for us they loaded it into the back of the truck with a fork lift. We didn't realize how heavy a 12 foot tree and it's root ball could be. Frank recruited a couple other people to help get it around the house and up the hill to the hole. Actually, getting it up the hill was the easiest part, but still, "that dern thing was heavy, hard to carry too." (slingblade).
