"^Agreed, the earlier you have them on board, the more they can help you.  I remember a few projects where they helped us lay out not only the design but the construction schedule to maximize the ability to transplant large trees."

"Air spade the crap out of the root zone to avoid major roots, and hire a good arborist.  It's been done before - Yale has done a lot of facade work on their buildings and many of them have large trees."
