When We Do It
Trees can improve the curb appeal of your home, and even increase your property value. The most favourable time to plant is spring or fall, as environmental conditions for transplanting are ideal. Planting can be done out of recommended seasons, but extra precautions should be taken to ensure the survival of new plantings. Nursery stock can be shipped from anywhere. It’s important to source from local growers for a higher likelihood of survival in Edmonton (which is considered a 3b hardiness zone). It’s always best to consult a certified arborist or other horticulture professionals when planning on planting trees.
How It’s Done
A healthy tree starts with a healthy root zone. Tree planting can be done quickly, but how it’s done has lasting effects on the tree for years to come. The site assessment and soil preparation is the foundation and most important part of planting. We take into account soil type, drainage, and depth when planting or relocating trees for our clients.
