Our Process

Process 1


The first step in planting a tree is to decide where you want it. Trees can be strategically planted to provide shade, windshields, and natural insulation.
Process 2


Once we know where the tree is going, we dig the hole. The planting hole must be just as deep as the root ball and 2-3 times as wide as the root ball.
Process 3

Root Prep

Next, we remove the root ball’s cover and loosen the roots. We also straighten or remove circling roots. This is an important step because circling roots can lead to girdling. Girdling is when circling roots surround the base of the tree and cut off the tree’s water and nutrients.
Process 4


Finally, we plant the tree! When planting your tree, we’re careful to make sure the root flare lies above the surface of the ground. Once the tree is correctly positioned, we fill in the rest of the hole with soil.
Process 5

Build Soil Berm

After the tree is planted, we build a soil berm around the base of the tree. A soil berm is a basin of soil that encircles the tree to help it collect water. It’s important to keep the root ball well watered until the tree’s roots are established.
Process 6


Once the tree is planted, we place stakes around the trees to keep it upright. These stakes can be removed once the tree’s roots are established.
