Tree Planting Services in Asheville, North Carolina
Quality Tree Services are complete tree planting experts. We have always loved the idea of being able to plant a small tree and watch it grow properly over the years. Unfortunately for many people, tree planting can be very touch. It’s a bit more delicate than working with flowers and plants. Trees may also require more protection and care in their early years in order to prosper in the correct way. Whatever reason you have for planting trees, we’re sure it’s a good one. Trees provide only benefits. Before planting or even deciding on a species, it’s always a wise decision to consult with a tree care company arborist. For example, when we visit a customer about planting a tree, we’ll go over the different types of tree species out there and choose strategic areas on your property as to where to plant. Planting a tree close to your home where it’s usually very sunny maybe help you lower your cooling bill during the summer. We will:
- Make sure your trees are planted in strategic areas on your property.
- Plant them properly to ensure the best growth patterns.
- Study the soil, location and weather to determine the best methods to grow your tree.
As plentiful as trees are in Asheville, NC, there will still always be places that lack trees. For instance, after a new subdivision is constructed, the once vacant land is now filled with beautiful and newly built houses. Soon, the houses will be occupied by families. Because the land has experienced heavy traffic during the home construction process, the last things that are added are trees. This is where Quality Tree Services enters the picture. Contact us if there is a need for trees on your landscape. We’ll advise you of all the information you need throughout your tree maturing process.
Tree Care Has to Have A Starting Point
Our company specializes in all aspects of maintaining tree health. However, before we start pruning and trimming (care that is reserved for mature trees), the tree must be planted first. For this, we have expert tree planters that are waiting to serve you. The first part of planting a tree involves choosing a designated area for where the tree will grow. Simple, yet important tasks are performed such as shoveling away debris. Remember that it takes only a short time to plant a tree, but the methods used will govern its success.
The most common type of new trees available for planting are called balled and burlapped trees (otherwise known as B&B trees). These trees are grown in a field up to a certain maturity and then transplanted for growing in a more permanent area. We recommend these types of trees for people that are not skilled with tree care. Once we plant them, the owner will not have to face the hardships of caring for delicate tree seedlings. Also, the property owner will be able to instantly enjoy their trees instead of waiting for them to grow.
Planting: It’s A Process That’s Well Worth the Time
Tree planting is a step-by-step process that takes time and adequate preparation. Correct planting can mean the difference between a flourishing tree, and a slowly maturing and eventually dead tree. Before planting, (and after preparing the site by removing debris and breaking up hardened soil) a tree planter is aware that the packaged root ball of the tree must remain hydrated. Because young trees are delicate, shade from the harsh rays of the sun is important.
The next step is to dig a hole. Our specialists at Quality Tree Services know that precise depth and width are equally important. If the hole is dug too deep, the tree may not thrive. A hole that is not dug widely enough will limit root expansion. This will cause poor anchoring of the tree.
After a suitable hole has been created, it’s time to put your tree into its new home! The tree should be carefully lifted by the burlap covered root ball. After the tree has been lowered into the center of the hole, the root ball must be opened by severing all packaging, (i.e. tie strings and burlap material). Lastly, the hole should be filled in with the soil that was previously excavated from it. The end result is a tree that is ready to grow big and tall for the world to see!
