    -Tree Location

    -Species Selection

    -Tree Type

    -Site Preparation (soil, watering, fertilization)

    -Mulching


The benefits of tree planting are vast.  During the planning stages, a arborist will discuss useful places on where to place your tree(s).  Not only an trees beautify your property, they can also increase the value.  We will survey your property and determine the best spots to provide shade during the summer and wind protection in the winter.


Once we’ve been able to determine locations for your new trees, we’ll have to decide which type of species to plant.  This is where the help of a arborist comes in handy.  We will examine your soil, climate and of course; personal taste in order to make the proper recommendation on your behalf.


Our experienced tree planters will be sure to select the right trees, and ensure that the right trees are planted properly to maximize the chances of living a long and healthy life.  It is important to be avoid the many pitfalls that can come as a result of inexperienced and hurried landscapers.  Unfortunately, for the most part, many errors are costly to reverse.  At Larned Tree Service, our crew will take everything into account to ensure that everything is done correctly with respect to the depth and width of the tree planting hole.  In addition, we make sure that the owner walks away fully informed of the required maintenance to ensure healthy growth throughout the tree’s life.


Trees come from the nursery as three different types.  These include a) Bare-Rooted Trees, b) Container Trees, and c) Balled and Burlapped Trees.  Each has their own pros and cons in comparison to the others.  Once we’ve been able to make a selection, we’ll begin properly digging.  The next step involves adding plenty of water, fertilizer and adding mulch to conserve moisture needed for growth.  A method known as “staking and guy wiring” is provided in order to give the tree structural support.  You can think of this as training wheels for a young tree until it’s established itself enough to support it’s own weight.  The final finishing touches to your new tree(s) involve “wrapping” and “pruning.”  Wrapping is done to prevent the sun from scalding fresh, young bark while pruning should be done lightly only to remove dead or broken branches.


There are many reasons for tree failure.
