There is a lot of noisy craning operations in this video, but I have sped up some of that for the time saving. This was filmed in Tonopah, Arizona, during the late spring of 2013. Please enjoy this and feel free to ask me anything about moving the big cactus. THANKS FOR WATCHING! Thanks goes out to the many people that helped to make this possible. First, I want to thank the cactus moving crew for all of the digging and framing and boxing of the plants. They are very skilled artists and the real stars of this video. Secondly, many thanks goes to the careful logistics planning and complex coordination provided by Mitschele’s Landscape Maintenance Corp, in Phoenix, Arizona. Thanks again Taylor! Lastly, thanks to all truckers and especially the ones that carried these plants home. Of course we all enjoyed plenty of delicious Cambell’s soup, during the filming of this video. This video was filmed with an old SONY Cyber-shot, model DSC-P73. —————————- LINKS —————————– Here is a link to the Part 1 of 3, of the new HD videos: Many thanks to the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona for everything that they do!

    I saw one at the desert botanical garden in Phoenix and can't remember what it was!

    Is this a planted cactus farm or is this a wild cactus desert? And are you taking out the cactus in order to build structures on the land or are you just selling the cactuses ?
