cool.You can cut these back quite strongly and also root pruning does not seem to affect them too badly. I would start by just trimming the plant back to a managable size (maybe 1*1metres. That will help you when digging. For potting up garden collects, I use coarse bims/pumice (Often found in pond sections in garden centres as pond substrate) and shredded pine bark as substrate.Make sure that bigger roots have clean cuts and are not ripped. Take your time digging around and under the shrub.
We will try that, tho I dont know if we can carefuly get it out, the bulldozer will most likely just scoop it out in 1 go and set it aside. I did some pictures on it. We did cut back the old stems a while ago to "refresh" it a little bit.

Alright we will try it! It wont be another few months before he starts building the Carport, and right now the tempertures are about to drop again. When the weather is a bit warmer without freezing we will dig it out!
Are there any styles one could do with such a big one?
Dig it up, stick it in a large pot, or in the ground, and let it grow for at least a year, and see what branches live, grow longer, or die. Then, see what you can do with what is left. You can't plan ahead too much now.
Too much planning now might be wasted if the tree doesn't live.
