Relocating a nest spruce?

I've been revamping the bed on the north side of my house. So far the only original plant still there is a very large nest spruce. Now I'm looking at the spot it's occupying as prime hosta location. I think I could fit about 4 medium size hosta there.
I have a hard time just turfing out a healthy plant, though. My question is, is it even possible to relocate such a large spruce? If so, when would one do it?
I know this is a hosta forum not a conifer forum, but I think there's at least one very knowledgeable poster here who can answer my question. Or at least others who will help me justify murdering this spruce, lol.
