Your best option would be to look for small (under 10" say) seedlings near to the parent tree while it is still spring... i have successfully done this with Rowan/Mountain Ash. Then just cut a circle around it with an old knife to cut the longer roots (say a 12" circle), bag it and take it home. Within a month it will be rooted and standing proud, maybe mist the leaves with a light food mix when it's shady to help it along. If you have a skylight to place the tree under, this will really help out.

There are many different trees to grow indoors, I just got my Meyer lemon this spring, as well as a Valencia orange, and an arbequina (sp?) olive. They will all live indoors forever. My entire order, which also included a dwarf apple for the orchard and a dozen blackberry plants, was just over a hundred dollars for everything. At maturity the produce that they all grow will save me more than I spent this spring, it may be something else to consider.

I have also seen Diffenbacias (sp?) grow as much as 20 feet. That particular tree was at my friend's house, it grew to the ceiling took a right turn and continued growing along the ceiling into her living room. That beast lived in a 3 or 4 foot diameter bucket with the rope handles on it. Be careful with these though, they are poisonous if ingested. I gave mine away when my first son was born.

Good luck, and keep us posted! I am curious, if your lilac makes it year round, I may have to try it too! The moose keep eating the ones outside.

the deed is done,,, as the sun set, i packed along my trusty axe, a bag, and a pair of gloves..
i was a bit freaked out, because i watched a zombie movie before my expedition....
but hey,,, i got my axe,,,

everything went better than i imagined... i picked a young shoot, maybe 180cm, from the base of the mother,,,
a bit hacking, and i got a very good sized root ball,, then washed in the lake,, again in my home,, applied my potion that i brewed earlier,, made small cuts all over the bottom of the trunk and rubbed some cloning gel...
then watered heavily with a mild seaweed water..
fingers crossed! and i hope it will flower,,, the smell of lilac is intoxicating,,,

(note to self, when you go trashing under a lilac, at night, bring some mosquito repellant,, man i got swarmed)
(lots of bats also)
i will update in a couple of days, was it a go-or-no-project....

thank you all for the advice,, and i need to get more plants as summer goes by,,,
i can already taste those sweet lemons..
...and maybe some type of berries too...
