Saplings need the right type of soil, the correct planting depth, and the right water ratios and drainage in order to grow into strong, healthy trees. The amount of fertilizer needed (if any), the shade a sapling needs, and the room needed to grow vary depending on the species of the tree. When planting a tree you get a nursery, you must also consider how the tree comes packaged. Is the tree in a container or a bag? Are the roots bare or balled? These all influence the way you will plant your tree, where you plant your tree, and when.
You can definitely figure these things out on your own with the right research and planning. The intrepid do-it-yourselfer or weekend warrior can spend the time and energy to figure out these important aspects of tree planting and can end up with a healthy, long-lived tree.
Our expert arborists all have the degrees, experience, and certifications needed to know these important factors. We don’t have to spend days researching how to plant a certain tree or care for a certain sapling because we have put in years of work already. We know the preferred soil drainage of a lilac bush and the maximum height a sycamore tree will grow.
We take the utmost care to ensure that your tree survives into adulthood when we transplant it. We offer fertilization options for this reason. However, we don’t believe in over-fertilization. When we over-fertilize trees and plants, the excess runs off into our water supply and leads to harmful environmental impacts. If you plant a tree correctly and with all the considerations in mind, your tree will flourish without fertilizer (or with minimum fertilization), because it is well-suited for its environment.
