Tree Transplanting Services in Asheville & Hendersonville, NC
So, You Want To Move Your Tree? Have you ever sat and looked at a tree and thought to yourself, “That tree would look better over there.” When a tree is planted, over time its roots grow into the ground and provide a strong anchor. However, our company has the skills to move your tree to another location.
There are several reasons why someone may want to have their tree moved. The tree may no longer fit in its original space. Some people are very attached to their trees. When they move to a different property, they may want to bring the tree with them. Regardless of your reason for transplanting a tree, there are rules of tree transplanting that must be obeyed.
As with tree planting, transplanting is best performed when the tree is dormant. In conjunction with this, tree species is an important factor. As an example, Elms and Bald Cypress trees react more positively to transplanting than other species because their root systems are more elaborate. On the contrary, the outlook may be dim for other species that lack this type of root system.
All trees will experience a certain level of trauma in the process of transplantation. If you have mature trees that will undergo tree transplanting, please know that they will require more attention than young trees.
At Quality Tree Services, we know that your tree needs can differ in unimaginable ways. However, we always love to focus on the positive aspects. New, young trees are a representation of fresh beginnings and new opportunities. After you occupy a new space, don’t forget about the benefits that trees can offer you. When it’s time for planting, please make Quality Trees Services the name you’re chanting!
The Best Times to Transplant A Tree
In Asheville, NC, our winters may not be as harsh as other areas of the world. However, there are still certain times of the year that are optimal for tree planting. You may think that summer is the best season to plant a tree in. However, summer is the worse season because of heat on immature trees. The peak time for planting trees is during the latter part of winter and the beginning of spring. These are the best times to plant trees because it is important to avoid interrupting their dormancy cycle.
During this cycle, trees are not growing at their maximum rate. Trees usually become dormant in autumn and end the cycle during spring. Keep in mind that ultimately, the time that you plant your tree will be determined by its species. At Quality Tree Services, we have expert information to help you to make an informed decision on which trees to purchase and when to add them to your landscape.
