The Future Of Moving Trees Rather Than Cutting Them

Unpredictably developing and evolving, nature never ceases to astound us. For this reason, homeowners frequently discover that trees they never anticipated are obstructing their front window. Sometimes mature trees that impede construction must be moved by commercial developers. Furthermore, trees have the potential to outgrow their areas and invade nearby areas.

Infuriating? Possibly. However, it is part of the allure of nature—you never know what to expect, and the outcomes may be breath-taking.

Trees write their own narratives. Removing or moving a tree, instead of just chopping it down, maintains this heritage and benefits both the environment and people by hiring a tree removal service. We have persevered for more than 40 years because of this sense of obligation.

In our more than 40 years of providing tree removal services, we have frequently been asked to remove trees, but we have also occasionally been asked to move trees for our clients. The differences between relocating and removing trees are discussed in this article along with the required actions.

Taking Down a Tree

To remove a tree is to dig it up and remove it from its current spot without causing it any harm. This calls for thorough preparation and close attention to detail.

Selecting Appropriate Time

We investigate the kind of tree we intend to remove initially. We can identify the ideal moment to remove the tree by looking at the species of the tree. The majority of trees are taken down in the late autumn or early spring. Typically, deciduous trees “hibernate” into the winter after losing their leaves in late autumn. When the roots are quiescent, uprooting them from the earth will yield the least amount of harm. Similarly, a tree is best removed in the early spring, just before the budding season, when it is still “hibernating” and dormant.

Getting The Tree Ready

We must trim the roots from the previous growth season before pulling down a tree. This is required to offer the tree vigour and nutrients following the removal and to guarantee that new feeder roots are developed near to the trunk.

Exploring The Tree

We assess how broad and deep we need to dig based on the size of the tree. We typically excavate 10 to 12 inches of root ball diameter for each inch of diameter in the tree trunk. We must dig deeper and larger holes in trees that are thicker.

For the root ball to be compact, whole, and cohesive during the removal procedure, it must stay moist. The roots are essential for the tree to re-establish itself in its new site; if the soil becomes dry and crumbles, the roots will follow.

Trailer Movement

The tree can be hauled away or moved once it has been lifted out of the ground.  When we move a tree, we transplant it in a better, more suitable location where it will have enough water, sunlight, and room to thrive.

We carefully measure the size of the tree species before determining where to move it to make sure it will develop to its full potential. We also take drainage, solar exposure, and soil condition into account.

It is OK to remove and relocate a tree once, but to do so repeatedly may jeopardise the tree’s resilience and overall health. And we try to stay away from it as much as we can because trees are beautiful because they survive for a very long time and shape the landscape for many years, if not centuries. 

After the tree has been planted, it needs extra care and attention to help it adjust to its new surroundings. It has to be routinely watered and examined for illness and shock. To encourage the tree’s growth, the soil could need more nutrients.

What’s Remaining?

When a tree is removed, all that’s left is a large pit full with roots. Up to 75% of the roots may eventually be left behind! We can only carry so much of the tree’s extensive root system with us when we transfer it, no matter how carefully we trim the roots and handle the removal and shipping of the tree.

What then should we do with this gaping hole? We may sow grass seed, plant a fresh tree or shrub, or take a completely other approach. The most crucial thing is to pack it full!
