We have a purple sand cherry tree that has grown out of control. My question is can I divide this tree into 2 or 3 trees to try and get a handle on it? We will be relocating this tree as it is too close to the foundation of our house. Any suggestions?

It can’t be divided since it is from 1 root system.  Cut it back about 1/3 a few days before you dig it up.  Moved while it is leafed out will probably shock it and possible kill it.  The best time to move it would be while it is in dormancy either late in fall or very early in spring as soon as the soil thaws out and before it leafs out.
