Planting a tree is a lifetime investment. We follow ISA tree planting guidelines.
One of our certified arborists can help you decide which tree is the right tree for the specific location on your property for long-time beauty, pleasure and benefits.
Did you know: 80% of trees planted today by professionals are planted incorrectly?
Dig a shallow, broad planting hole. Make the hole wide, as much as three times the diameter of the root ball. It is important to make the hole wide so the roots can easily grow through the surrounding soil. Breaking up the soil in a large area around the tree provides the newly emerging roots room to expand into loose soil.
Identify the trunk flare. The trunk flare is where the roots spread at the base of the tree. This point should be partially visible after the tree has been planted. If the trunk flare is not partially visible, you may have to remove some soil from the top of the root ball. Find it so you can determine how deep the hole needs to be for proper planting
Most arborists recommend removing at least the top 12 to 18 inches (two or three levels) of wire from the root ball. This will allow the major roots and trunk to grow without any possibility of girdling later.
Mulch a wide, not a deep circle around your trees. A 2 to 4 inch layer of organic mulch will help maintain moisture and promote new root growth.
