Transplanting a full-grown tree at Reelig Estate, Kirkhill

This photograph shows the transplanting of a full grown tree on the Reelig Estate near Inverness. The estate was associated with the Frasers of Reelig. The tree was so heavy that five men were needed to pull the trailer and four to hold the tree steady, with a dog to watch them. The men who worked on the estate were paid 12s to 15s per week
