Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How often should I be watering my new trees?
A. The first 2 years after a tree is planted is the time where the tree settles in and begins to establish its main root structure that will support it for it's entire life.
Proper watering is essential during this period to ensure a long healthy life. Twice a week during the summer, we recommend putting a hose on a slow trickle for 30 minutes to ensure the roots at the bottom of the root ball are properly saturated. In winter months, you can reduce watering to once every 7-10 days.
Q. Help, my tree is losing leaves and looking sad!
A. All newly planted trees will experience some degree of transplant shock. Make sure you are giving the tree proper water. On days that it is extremely hot (90s and over) spray the foliage to help reduce heat stress.
Q. How can I tell if I am over watering my new tree?
A. Best way to check if your tree needs more water is to check the soil moisture 3 inches under the mulch. Pull the mulch back and dig down and feel the soil. If it still feels cool and damp, you can skip watering for the day. If it is dry, then its ready for a deep watering!
Q. I think my tree is sick. Do you have anyone available to diagnose my tree?
A. Yes we do! We have a horticulturalist on staff that can come out and look at your trees as well as treat them. We do charge a fee for the consult. Treatments are extra. If you are interested, please click this link to request an appointment. https://bit.ly/2DXPd7b
Q. Why does it take 48 hours to get my tree ready for pick up? I’d like to plant it today.
A. All of our trees are ball and burlap which means they are in the ground. Depending on soil and moisture conditions, additional time is needed to properly dig them out without putting unnecessary stress on the trees. We take extra care to safely prepare your trees for transplant.
Q. A big tree died in my yard and I need to have it removed. Can you do that for me?
A. We specialize in growing and planting trees. Tree removal is a specialty service that we do not offer. We recommend calling your local arborist for further assistance. Once your tree has been carefully removed, we can help you pick a new tree to be planted. (Note: we cannot plant trees in the same location as a tree that was removed)
