Snohomish, WA, November 27, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Northwest US tree transplanting specialists, Big Trees Inc. (http://www.bigtreesupply.com/) is urging home owners to transplant trees in their landscape now, and for a very pointed reason. They are providing their advice on this process as well as a few things to watch out for in transplanting a tree out of, into or to a different location in a landscape, whether home or commercial.
The company urges homeowners to transplant trees now because in late fall and winter trees are dormant, making the transplanting process ideal. The survivability of transplanted trees is highly dependent on the initial health of a tree, but this factor of the tree being dormant is definitely one of the bigger factors in ensuring a successful transplant that will look great in a landscape for years to come. A tree transplanted in fall or winter will usually be more acclimated and produce more growth than one done closer to spring.
Ross Latham, founder of the company, stated: “The fall time is a great time to transplant existing trees in yours (or a client’s) landscape that have outgrown a space or are blocking a view. Or maybe you want to totally change the look of a mature landscape. Timing is one of the important considerations when you are planning a tree transplant. It is easier to transplant trees and shrubs when they are dormant. This is the period after the leaves turn in fall and before the spring growth begins. The fall time is a great time to transplant existing trees in yours (or a client’s) landscape that have outgrown a space or are blocking a view. Or maybe you want to totally change the look of a mature landscape. If you have questions about transplanting, contact a professional tree transplanter. They will have a staff of knowledgeable horticulturalists that can determine the likelihood of a successful transplant.”
