Helpful Tips for Tree Planting and Transplanting


Helpful Tips for Tree Planting and TransplantingBecause trees can experience serious stress when they're planted or transplanted, you'll want to take certain factors into consideration to make this process easier. By taking some precautions when planting, the tree will have the best chance to grow up healthy and not become a hazard on your property. In some cases, trees need to be transplanted because they're growing too close to buildings. If a big tree is posing a threat to the building, it may need to be cut down. In such a scenario, Woodpecker Tree Service can safely remove the tree. But with smart planting, you'll have a better chance to avoid such a situation from occurring in the future.

Important Considerations before Tree Planting/Transplanting

Before planting a tree on your property, it's very important that you account for its maximum size. You'll want to take into account the tree's mature height and width and make sure it won't eventually interfere with power lines, buildings, or anything else.

Like with any plant, you'll also want to take into consideration the trees' needs for sunlight and soil type. Many trees grow optimally in full sun, while others are okay with partial shade. You'll also want to check for what type of soil will be ideal for the tree. A pH test can inform you as to whether your soil is more acidic or alkaline.

For the greatest success during the transplanting process, there are a few things to keep in mind. For one, it's best to transplant on a cool day because hot weather can stress the plant. Also, watering before transplanting can help with reducing stress. And it's best if you keep as much of the root ball intact when transplanting. The root ball should be kept moist and cool while it is out of the ground.
