Tree Planting - Supply & Delivery
|Tree planting is the process of transplanting tree seedlings, generally for forestry, land reclamation, or landscaping purposes. It differs from the transplantation of larger trees in arboriculture, and from the lower cost but slower and less reliable distribution of tree seeds.|
Bare root trees are generally used within the forest industry when planting larger plantations or planting groups. For the majority of cases bare rooted trees or whips as they are sometimes called are planted between late October and End of March during the dormant season. It is possible to plant during April and in some cases as late as the first week of May, however it is better to avoid planting bare root trees once the new leaves have started to flush.
An alternative to bare root trees are cell grown trees, these trees are often smaller in size but are supplied within a self contained plug or cell of soil that they have been grown in from the nursery. This does give them an advantage over their bare root counterparts in that they can be planted all year round and are less susceptible to drying out, but they are more expensive to buy and take a little longer to harden off.
We can either supply and plant bare root or cell grown trees with or without guarding and will advise our clients the best course of action to take with regard to the protection of their trees whether that is utilising tree shelters or deer and rabbit fencing.
