Planting and Transplanting

Consultation, Tree Selection and Tree Planting

Properly planted trees and shrubs are an investment that will reward you for years to come.  There’s a lot more to planting than just digging a hole in the ground.  When you hire Acri Tree Care to plant trees and shrubs for you, we start with a consultation.  During this time, we evaluate your planting site’s conditions and will then recommend species that will perform best in your space.  We then hand pick each tree and shrub from the nursery so you start with the best plant possible.  Your tree is then expertly planted, fertilized, and watered in.  Proper tree planting is the first and most important step in a long and healthy life for your tree.

Other Services

Root Collar Excavations – Buried root collars are one of the most common tree health care problems.  A tree’s trunk should flair out as it meets the soil.  Unfortunately, trees are sometimes planted too deep and this lower part of the trunk is covered with soil and mulch.  This often predisposes the tree to a host of pests and disease, not to mention roots will often incircle the trunk and girdle it.  When you start seeing symptoms it may already be too late.  We use a special tool called an Air Spade that uses high pressured air to remove soil from around the roots without damaging root tissue.   We will then remove any problematic roots and remulch the tree at the proper level.

Deer Protection – Sharing your backyard with white-tailed deer can be disastrous for your plants.  In areas with high deer pressure, deer resistant varieties may still become food. Acri Tree Care has solutions to your deer problems, so please ask how we may be of service.

Lightning Protection – Although we can’t prevent lightning strikes, we can install a system into the tree that in the event of a strike will reroute the electricity and dissipate the charge into the ground.  This will help keep the charge from doing any damage to the tree or its surroundings.
