Tree planting factors to consider
Planting a tree is a major commitment. There are several things to put into consideration. First, you have to check with the local authority in your area to ensure that there is no restriction on tree planting where you live. Then you have to figure out the intended position of the tree. This depends largely on the purpose you have in mind for the tree. Trees can complement your landscape in various ways and serve functional purposes as well. But you should consider the long term prospects as well. This will determine the positioning of the tree as well as the type of tree to plant. For instance, a red oak tree may look good in your yard today. But how will it look in the next few years when it is several times larger. Finally, consider the needs of the tree. Other important considerations include space, drainage, light, soil conditions, and so on. These are details that you need to work out with our tree planting expert before we proceed with the project.
The Average Cost of Planting Trees
Tree planting costs vary widely and it depends on several factors. It is difficult to say exactly how much your tree planting project will cost until major decisions have been made. The type of tree you want us to plant is a major consideration. Different types of trees have their own specific cost associated with them. For instance, trees that need to be transferred from a nursery will have a different cost from those planted directly. The number of trees, where it will be planted and other considerations can also affect the average cost. But in any case, be rest assured that our tree planting service is affordable.

Where to plant a tree
This is one of the major details of any tree planting project. Choosing the right position for your tree can determine how well the tree grows. You don’t want to plant a tree that needs dry conditions in a part of your property that retains a lot of water. This can cause damage to the tree as it grows. You also have to consider the position of the tree with respect to your landscaping fixtures and relative to your property. You should never plant a tree too close to your house. Large trees may also pose a threat to septic tanks and underground water lines as their roots might grow into them.
Tree Fertilization and ongoing tree care
After planting a tree, regular maintenance is required to keep it in excellent condition. One of the things you may need to do is tree fertilization. While this is not required for all trees, some trees can benefit immensely from periodic fertilization. Other tree care routines include tree trimming, pruning, and cabling. After planting your trees, you can hire our services for ongoing tree care to keep your trees in good condition.
