Has your tree outgrown its location? Is it too close to your house? Are utilities being interrupted by your tree? In any of these cases or other problems that you are experiencing because of your tree, you can choose to relocate it. This way, you can solve the problem you are facing and continue to enjoy the aesthetics that it gives your yard.
The tree can be dug out using a digger or spade. But this method can ruin the roots of your tree and in turn, impact its health and survival. So, we use an air spade to dig up the tree while maintaining the integrity of the root system. The tree can then be transported to another location and replanted.
Transplanting a tree is an activity that needs professional expertise. This is because there are various guidelines we follow to ensure the process is successful. When choosing a new home for your tree, we check the species and size of the tree. Trees prefer various levels of sun, shade, and different conditions of soil drainage. Once we identify the species and size of your tree, we can assess its new home for viability before commencing the process.
When it comes to the age of the tree, there is no much difference between transplanting an old tree and a young one. But the aftercare that these two trees receive is different. While young trees require minimal aftercare after transplanting, the old one needs more aftercare.
Aftercare helps trees to cope due to the shock experienced during the process. Aftercare involves the application of a fertilizer, watering, and pest management control.
What is the best time to transplant a tree? When the plant is dormant during autumn or spring. We can help transplant before the initial frost in Autumn. The best time for transplanting during spring is before the sprouting of the tree. During the dormancy period of a tree, they have no leaves and fruits and don’t depend a lot on water. So, they will not suffer as much from shock as active trees with fruits and leaves.
The right window of transplanting a tree will depend on the tree species. But at times, it might be urgent to transplant a tree that has grown too close to power lines or other utilities. In this case, our air spade solution will ensure that your roots remain intact, and the tree can achieve successful transplantation even when it is active with leaves and fruits.
Keep in mind that there are times that tree relocation may become unfeasible. This is when the tree is experiencing stress or when the new site is not suitable for your tree size or species.
Once we determine that your tree can be transplanted, there are things you need to do to prepare for the process:
