Tree Planting and Transplanting

Tree Planting

Planting trees in a residential area should be based on their capacity to cope with and adapt to the soil, sunlight, and climate at the selected site. It is not just about choosing the perfect tree to be planted but also selecting the right tree for the right place. As we all know, tree planting is the process of transplanting tree seedlings, which for most of us is for the purpose of landscaping. This is to improve the aesthetics of our yard and provide shade and fresh air in your community.

Benefits of Planting Trees

It provides oxygen and improves air quality.

Without plants and trees, life would never exist. Trees and plants are the major providers of the oxygen we breathe. They are also considered absorbents of odors and harmful dusts through the process of filtration of pollutants out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and barks.

It keeps your yard cool by providing shade.

The branches and leaves of trees give shade to our homes and streets. They keep their surroundings cool by releasing water vapor into the air through their leaves. Furthermore, well-placed trees can reduce your cooling costs during the summer.

It reduces soil erosion.

Trees have a large contribution to make in reducing and avoiding the occurrence of soil erosion. Trees achieved this process by reducing storm water runoff. Through this procedure, the effects of flooding might also be reduced.

It helps homeowners improve the aesthetics of their landscape.

Through careful planning when planting trees, aesthetic appeal will surely be achieved. Be it an ornamental tree, a fruit-bearing tree, a shade tree, or other type of tree, as long as it is properly planted and regularly maintained,

Using quality trees and following up with good tree care practices, such as watering, fertilizing, trimming, and pruning if they are poorly planted, successful growth can still not be achieved. If you are encountering some issues or troubles planting trees, call our local arborist to help you determine the right tree and the perfect location in your yard. Northern Lakes Tree Service can also work with you to transplant trees that grew in an undesirable or unideal growing spot.

Tree Transplanting

Transplanting trees is a precise process that is best completed by a tree care professional. Specialized knowledge is needed to do this job to avoid harm and ensure the survival of your tree. Many transplants die due to improper removal, selection, and installation.

We provide you with the most common questions homeowners usually ask when transplanting a tree.

1. When is the best time to transplant a tree?

In establishing tree transplants, timing and type of tree should be considered. Most deciduous trees are transplanted during their dormant season, when leaves are off the tree (early spring or early fall). For most trees and shrubs, late winter or early spring are the best times for transplanting. For the second-best time, you should consider falling.

2. What should we do after tree transplanting?

The best thing to do after transplanting a tree is to manage watering religiously. A newly transplanted tree might experience root damage that causes its root system to get weak enough to handle drought and excess water stresses. To ensure the survival and development of your tree and its root, keep the soil evenly moist throughout its entire growing season.

The "do-it-yourself" approach to transplanting is only recommended for small trees. Hiring a professional tree specialist is highly recommended for larger ones.
