incantation

Moves a tree (PA10).

The basic spell for moving something starts with the “Mobili-” prefix. It is up to the caster to be able to tack on the correct Latinate word for the object to be moved, in this case a tree. It seems unlikely that there is a “standard” spell for moving a tree to one side!

References from the canon

  • Hermione uses Mobiliarbus to move a Christmas Tree in The Three Broomsticks so Professor McGonagall won't know that Harry sneaked into Hogsmeade. (PA10)
