Why You Should Always Have A Professional Move Your Trees

When people think about having landscaping done, they often think about trees, shrubs, and flowers to create a beautiful design. That’s in fact what many people choose when they’re getting their home professionally landscaped. But beyond choosing what landscape design would look good for their home, many homeowners don’t put much thought into the process.

There are times in landscaping when an existing tree needs to be moved or a new tree needs to be placed. Often when a new tree is placed, that tree isn’t planted from a seedling but rather a young or adult tree is planted. The process of choosing which tree fits and knowing when to move them isn’t always the easiest process. That’s why it’s so important to choose a professional landscaping service to take care of moving or planting new trees.

Why Existing Trees May Need to Be Moved

It may seem like an oxymoron to move existing trees when new trees or shrubs are going to be planted anyways. There are actually several reasons an existing tree may need to be moved, but here are some of the common reasons.

  • The tree is dead. Trees that are dead pose risks to your home and cars because in harsh weather they are more likely to splinter and fall.
  • The tree is in an inconvenient spot. Sometimes trees will cross over property lines or obstruct the homeowner’s view of their yard. In that case, some homeowners choose to move the tree to a more convenient spot, rather than trimming it down.
  • The tree roots are damaging other structures. In some cases, large tree roots will begin to grow near and under other structures like driveways or patios. When these large roots begin sprouting up, they can potentially crack or damage the surface of these structures and will be moved to prevent this.

The Importance of Choosing Professionals

It may be tempting to try to move your own tree when needed, but there are several reasons to choose a professional landscaping company like Fresh Cut Landscape to help you. First and foremost, choosing a professional landscaping company can ensure that these trees will be moved in a safe manner. There is a risk of injury with the labor-intensive job of moving trees and it is better not to attempt this on your own. With over 29 years of experience, Fresh Cut Landscape has the experience to move trees without incident.

Safety isn’t the only factor to take into consideration when moving trees. If the goal is to successfully transplant a tree, there are many different factors to take into consideration to make sure the tree itself survives. Sunlight requirements and soil type should be taken into consideration to ensure the tree will thrive. Root pruning also needs to be performed so that the tree can safely be transplanted and will survive in its new location.
