Greetings all, 

I hope that someone out there is able to help me track down some information, 
even share some of their personal experiences.  

I have heard a suggestion made that dead hollow-bearing trees (stags) at risk 
removal could be relocated to a site nearby, hence preserving the use of its 
hollows for local hollow-dependent fauna.  Does anyboody know any examples or 
studies where hollow-bearing trees have been moved, and then fauna species 
(particularly birds and mammals) subsequently re-inhabit the hollows?
