With little more than a shovel and a truck, you can easily move a tree or shrub from one place to the next—right? Unfortunately, that’s not the case. If you want to do it right, there is a lot more that goes into the process than simply digging the plant up and putting it in a new hole. Working with TLC to move a tree or shrub will lead to a much better outcome than attempting to do so on your own, as we’ll consider many important factors to ensure the job is executed properly. Give us a call today for expert tree moving services in Jackson, WY.
Long before we use any of our advanced tools to pierce the ground and move a tree or shrub, we’ll carefully analyze the situation to determine the right time to make a move. Often, the right time is going to be early in the spring or later in the fall—but those are just guidelines. We can evaluate the status of a specific plant to determine if it is suitable for transplant right away or if waiting would be a better approach.
If you have been told by other service providers that your trees cannot be transplanted in the summer, give us a call to see what we can do. Thanks to our use of tree spades, we can dig a larger root ball for transport than many other contractors. That means it’s possible for us to do summer transplants for certain trees. To explore that possibility, reach out right away for help.
Planting a tree too low in the ground can cause it to die in the coming years, while planting it too high can lead to the same outcome. You can trust TLC to place your tree in the ground at the perfect height to take root in its new location.
Proper watering is another important part of the transplant process. We will work with you to provide advice on how often to water, how much to water, and anything else you’ll need to know to care for the tree correctly.
It can take three or more years before a transplanted tree or shrub will show signs of improper transplanting techniques. And, at that time, it will be too late to recover the dying tree or shrub. That’s why it’s so important to work with a certified, professional team for tree transplanting services.
At TLC, we are college trained and certified by the International Society of Arboriculture. You can count on our time to safely and effectively move your trees and shrubs so that they can thrive in their new environment.
