90% of the Trees Planted in the last 5 years in our area, are not planted properly. 

This is a problem that will not present until the landscaper is long forgotten. 


A Good Start is Everything!

What is the most common problem I see as a Consulting Arborist?

Around 90% of the Trees planted here in the last 5 years are buried alive. This is a problem that will not change, until the Planters learn a little more about trees. They will not present problems for a few years, and by then the planting depth is not even considered as a possible cause. It was too long ago… 

Unfortunately, the affects of poor planting can take 5 years to show up.

Why is Planting such a “Shock” to a Tree

Trees start out in a Nursery where every need is met constantly. Most nurseries I have toured treat their trees weekly. Feedings, Insect Control, Fungicide, Hormones, it’s all part of getting the Tree as close to perfection as the grower can to maximize value.

Now a “Landscaper” takes it from that nurturing environment and puts it in the ground where the Tree is lucky if it’s watered properly. That’s like taking a patient from the ICU to the hospital parking lot.

“Shock” is not a strong enough word.

Experience is Everything, and I have 35 Years of it.

I planted my first Trees (12) in 1988. (yeah I’m that old). They were 12 Bradford Pear Trees. Placed along the street in NJ. They were still there 10 years ago. I had the luxury of a good mentor back then, and proper planting is something that never lost it’s value.

Do I offer a Warranty?

Yes, if you put the Trees on our TreeCare program, I will warranty it for up to 5 years.

The Cost is about 10% (per year) of the initial planting price of the Tree. This includes all treatments and monitoring needed to ensure the health and vigor of the Trees.
