Process We Follow for Tree Planting

Site Analysis

The first step in our tree planting process is a thorough site analysis. We will walk your property to determine the optimal tree species, number of trees and tree locations. Key factors we consider include:

  • Sunlight patterns throughout the day
  • The location of existing structures, overhead and underground utilities
  • Soil conditions and drainage
  • Your landscape objectives and personal preferences

Proper site planning allows us to select ideal planting spots and tree varieties that will flourish. It also prevents conflicts between trees, buildings, and infrastructure as they grow.

Tree Selection

Once we complete the site analysis, we help you select the most suitable tree types for your landscape goals and growing conditions. Our ISA Certified Arborists will recommend trees that are:

  • Appropriate for your location’s USDA Hardiness Zone (Zone 6).
  • Fit for the soil, drainage and sunlight exposure in your planned planting areas.
  • Complement other trees and plants already growing.
  • Provide the desired aesthetics, shade, wind protection, etc.
  • Resistant to diseases and pests common in here.

Some excellent options for residential tree planting include maples, oaks, flowering crabapples, lindens and spruce. We will help match species to your site.

Pre-Planting Preparation

After choosing trees, our team will prepare the planting sites. Proper soil preparation is crucial for healthy root development. We will:

  • Outline each planting hole based on the tree’s root ball size.
  • Dig holes to the proper width and depth for each species.
  • Amend native soil if needed to improve texture and drainage.
  • Build raised planting beds if drainage is poor.

For commercial sites or large plantings, we can bring in our equipment for efficient pre-planting preparation.

Careful Planting

The key to healthy, thriving trees is careful planting. Our tree experts will:

  • Move trees carefully to avoid damaging the root ball or tree.
  • Place the root ball on undisturbed soil in the center of the hole.
  • Straighten and face the tree properly, then backfill native soil.
  • water thoroughly to saturate the root zone without air pockets.
  • Apply mulch around each tree without touching the trunk.
  • Stake and guy all trees properly to avoid movement.

Post-Planting Care

The work doesn’t stop once trees are planted. We instruct you on proper aftercare to keep trees healthy as they establish, including:

  • Watering schedule based on species, soil and weather.
  • Mulching, pruning and fertilizing techniques.
  • How to carefully remove staking and guying over time.
  • Ongoing pest and disease prevention.

With the right post-planting care, your trees will thrive in their new home.

FAQs About Tree Planting in Farmington Hills, Michigan

What is the best time to plant trees in Farmington Hills?

Spring and fall are ideal for tree planting. Avoid summer heat or frozen winter soil. Ask us for best planting months per species.

How long does it take for newly planted trees to establish?

Establishment time varies by tree but generally 1-3 years. Proper watering and care aids root development.

Should I amend my soil before tree planting?

In most cases, no. Amending disrupts soil layers. We assess if amendments will help drainage or texture.

How close together should trees be planted?

Spacing depends on species size at maturity and site. We properly space trees to allow future growth.

Should I prune trees at planting?

Pruning at planting is not necessary in most cases. We only prune to remove damaged branches or improve structure.

Do newly planted trees need staking or guying?

If planted properly, many trees won’t need support. We determine if staking or guying is beneficial.

How often do I water newly planted trees?

Watering frequency depends on species, soil, weather and more. We provide a tailored watering schedule.

What is the best mulch for new trees?

Shredded wood or bark mulch 2-4 inches deep is ideal. Don’t pile mulch against the trunk.

When can staking and guying be removed?

We monitor tree establishment and advise when support can be removed safely, usually in 1-2 years.

How can I get the most value from investment in new trees?

Follow our expert planting and care recommendations to grow healthy trees that thrive for decades.
