Transplanting & Planting

Transplanting and Planting

Most people would consider planting a tree hard work but not a technically difficult job. Planting a tree or shrub is hard work, but planting it as if it grew from a seed can be very difficult. Recent studies have proven that 80% of all woody plants that come from nurseries are planted too deep to thrive.  When planting,  the specific requirements for sun, soil, and space need to be considered. Planting a tree correctly so that the tree lives a long and healthy life is more complex than digging a hole.  As a matter of fact, the most important thing you can do for a tree, throughout its entire life, is to plant it properly. We receive many calls about trees that are dying due to complications caused by improper planting. A large portion of our pruning jobs are on trees and shrubs that have over grown their space. Do you have a tree that was planted too close to your house or one that may look better in another spot? Are you moving and wish to take that special planting with you? Are you building a garage or planning an addition in the same spot currently occupied by an established woody plant?  No problem! We can transplant trees and shrubs, large and small. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please call us today.
