Transplanting A Tree To Your Property

Adding new trees to your property can improve the appearance and feel of your outdoor space while providing many environmental benefits. While trees are slow growing, transplanting them can help fill your landscaping more quickly. There are a few key strategies to remember when selecting, planting, and caring for new trees that can help you avoid common complications.

Choose New Trees For Your Property 

When choosing new trees for your property, there are several factors to consider to ensure the best chance of success. Climate, soil type, and sun exposure are the most important considerations. Choosing a tree that can thrive in your property's conditions reduces the maintenance it will take to keep it alive. In this regard, native trees are often a good choice. They are adapted to local conditions, which can help them withstand the types of weather extremes your area can expect.

Hire Professionals To Install The New Trees

While planting trees on your property is feasible without hiring a professional, there might be better choices. Multiple issues and complications may develop if a tree is not transplanted correctly. You may avoid these risks by hiring qualified arborists, landscape architects, and other specialists. Additionally, they can take precautions to guarantee that the trees are staked and supported. These steps can support the roots while they are growing and developing. Also, these contractors can limit damage to your property during installation. When choosing a contractor, ensure they have experience planting the kinds of trees you want for your landscape.

Care For The Transplanted Trees

Caring for newly transplanted trees ensures their long-term health and survival. Unfortunately, there are many mistakes homeowners need to avoid. Watering the trees after planting them is essential for helping them to adapt. Immediately after being transplanted, the tree's roots will be significantly underdeveloped. This limits the moisture they can absorb, but frequently watering the tree can mitigate this issue. The tree must also be staked to hold it in place while the root system develops.  

Learn To Recognize Early Signs Of Disease In Newly Planted Trees

Newly planted trees are vulnerable to pests and diseases. A homeowner must be vigilant for early signs of these problems. Common symptoms of the disease include wilting, discoloration, and leaf drop. Prompt action is necessary if you notice any signs of disease or pest infestation. Otherwise, the newly transplanted tree may die due to these complications. A professional tree company can evaluate your transplanted tree to determine the cause of the complications and perform the necessary treatments.
