More information needed.

What kind of trees?

How large?

Evergreen or deciduous?

When do you want to do this?

What is your climate like? I see you are in the USA, but that could be polar or subtropical, continental or coastal. A more precise location wuld be useful.

Can you post photos of the trees and where they are now?

Is it easy to excavate a large root-ball?

I'm not sure what a garage tree is? It must be a USA thing! However I once moved an established 16 foot eucalyptus tree which is supposed to be impossible, due to the tap root. So nothing is impossible. God luck. :wink:
