A breakdown on typical tree planting tasks

  • Tree, shrub, bush, perennial, and flower planting. Ask yourself, “ I patient?” Most of our customers want to purchase the most established (and often biggest) tree that is possible to install, this factor is often at odds with keeping costs low. Big trees often, but not always have extra planting and planning requirements than smaller trees such as: utility locating and inspections, heavy material handling needs, machine installation, and navigating the complexities of other subsurface barriers to name a few.
  • Subsurface ground conditions. It isn’t always possible to know exactly what is underneath the ground. Sometimes adjustments to expectations and planting location is needed.
  • Material handling requirements. If a tree is large, the requirements to move that tree will be more as well, sometimes even needing machines.
  • Tree and plant inspection. As arborists, Oakstead Tree & Property Care staff are well acquainted with tree biology and known species defects. We can inspect nursery stock to ensure that plants and trees stand the best chances in your garden.
