I think I could move it Tommy . I would cut it back to one frond and a spear and get a solid ball by professionally digging it and moving it . You would dig all the way around it and when you had dug almost completely under it I would flop it over into a blanket or big tobacco burlap . Two people could then grab the four corners and carefully move it to its new pre -dug hole . Soak it every day and you'll see growth pretty fast . I just dug a volunteer Minor and had growth within a couple weeks . Same with a Louisiana I dug up a few years ago . It's all about the solid ball and watering it really often . I do know that Palmettos are a little different but I think that with enough care it could be moved .
