Professional Tree Planting Services
As the crisp winds of autumn descend, it may surprise you to learn that now may be the best time to plant those trees you’ve been thinking about! Tree planting can be a transformative experience for your landscape. Whether you’re a homeowner looking to add a new dimension to your property, or a business owner aiming to enhance your commercial space, we can provide a professional tree planting service to suit your scale and budget.
Tree planting is a science as much as it is an art. Hiring a professional is crucial for success and before you start digging, it’s essential to consider several factors:
What tree is right for me?
When considering what species of tree to go for, you should think about the space and how you would like the area to look in the long term.
Some tree species may seem to be just what you want when you spot it in the garden centre, but 5 years down the line it could start to overpower the space, causing issues such as blocking light, shedding leaves (which can block your drainage) and encroaching onto property / structures.
Ideal tree services can advise in every step of the tree planting process, including what species would work well for your space and suit your desired look and feel.

When is best for tree planting?
Different trees thrive in different seasons. Deciduous trees, like oaks and maples, are typically planted in the Autumn when they’re dormant. Evergreens, such as pines and spruces, are best planted in the spring.
Knowing when to plant ensures your trees get the best start.
Location, location, location!
In case we haven’t emphasized this enough, location is key!
Trees need space to grow and thrive. Consider the mature size of the tree you want to plant and ensure it won’t interfere with buildings, utilities (such as power lines), or other trees.
Did you know that tree roots can spread up to three times the height of the tree? Consider the impacts this could have on building structures slabs and other objects located nearby.
Pay attention to the amount of sunlight your chosen spot receives; some trees prefer full sun, while others thrive in shade.
We can provide advice and guidance in the planning stages to ensure the proposed planting is in the right location to ensure the longevity of your new tree/s.
Soil and Nutrients for tree planting
Soil quality is paramount. A soil test can
determine if your soil lacks essential nutrients. We can recommend soil amendments to optimize conditions for tree growth.

Proper watering is critical, especially during the tree’s early years. As a professional Arboriculturist company, we know how to establish an efficient watering routine to ensure your tree’s health.
