    oh it's sideways  :) I was looking at it thinking that's a weird looking moss?

    It is a tree rather than a shrub.
    You say you are moving out soon, are you selling or renting? If you are just renting then unless you planted it yourselves you don't own it and would be stealing it if you took it with you. If you are selling then you need to make it clear that it isn't included in the sale to avoid any legal issues with your buyer.

    When did you plant it? If it has only been in a year or so then it should be do-able. You will need a big pot though as you need to keep as much of the root ball as possible. Start excavating about half a metre out from the trunk to see how far the roots go.
