I have a very old staghorn that is huge and beautiful that I need to find a good home for.  I have had it for 17 yrs and original owner had it atleast 20.  I know these things can be asked for between 500-1000 dollars.  It's about 5 feet in daimeter.  Could send pics to anyone interested.  looking for reasonable offers or trades.  Thanks

I tried to upload one, but was having trouble.  Here's the CL listing which has a photo.

How much that thing weigh and if some one bought it, how would you move it?

I would love to have that hanging on my oaks. I have some staghorns but they grow so slow.

Dave - if you're interested give me a shout.  I have moved it twice and made a 2x4 contraption that it will "seat" into and then 4 guys can carry it on the long ends of the 2x4's (like king tut).  It fits in the back of a pickup.  

Deploy the same way - chain over a tree and 4 guys hoist it up while 1 connects the chain to the latch.  Done it several times.  Its bigger than the picture gives off.  

I just dropped the price.  I had it at my house forever in Satellite hanging from a wood structure I made.  It really belongs in an oak.  I moved to mel bch and had it in a nice oak, but moved back to Satellite.  No oaks.  Its been at a friends hanging in his oak, but his wife doesnt like it so I need to find a home for it.

 

Give me a shout if you're really interested.  Thanks..
