Tree Moving

Tree moving is basically the removal of dead, dying or injured trees from your landscape. Most homeowners hate to see their trees damaged and uprooted because this deters people from using the land for many years. Removing a tree spade takes a lot of planning, patience and experience to successfully complete the job. For those who are new to tree removal it can be quite a task to choose the correct equipment, hire a professional mover and prepare all the necessary paperwork. In addition to these factors there are many other issues you need to take into consideration.

The first thing you need to do before commencing tree moving is to find out the exact diameter of your landscape. This will help you determine the size of the tool needed for the job. You will also need to find out the size of the trees you wish to remove, whether they are evergreen or deciduous. Finding out the specifics for these two categories will help you in selecting the right size of tree moving equipment to use on each tree.

After finding out the specific diameter of your landscape it is time to start doing some research as to how to move the trees. If you don't have any knowledge about tree moving it may be best to bring in a professional. There are two ways of transplanting; by hand or with a machine. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages and I wouldn't recommend using either without knowing both. It is also important to note that the smaller the tree the larger the roots so it may be easier to transplant with a hand transplant but it will take longer.

Once you have taken all the necessary steps to find out the diameter of your landscape it is time to move forward with finding the biggest tree moving machine. There are several different types of tree spades available on the market ranging from tree-climbing to tree sweeping. These machines vary in price depending on how big of a model you require. The best approach to purchasing a model for transplanting trees is to do your research before making the purchase so that you know exactly what your budget is and then go and shop around.

One important thing to keep in mind before making a final decision regarding which model to buy is that you need to have some kind of aftercare program in place. Tree spades don't just dig the ground; they also remove the soil that supports your trees roots. The more dirt removed the larger your tree moving machine will have to be in order to move the largest amount of soil. Therefore it is important to consider having some form of aftercare plan in place before making a purchase.

Finally, another important thing to consider when moving trees is if you are dealing with any sort of wind. Evergreens tend to move rather well in strong winds but deciduous trees are often damaged by strong winds. Always consult with your local extension office and find out what is appropriate to do in your area. If you don't feel comfortable with the answer you can always call a professional tree mover to assist you.
