We take it for granted that trees are permanent, fixed structures, their very root system guaranteeing solidity and immovability. As much as we love trees, sometimes they need to be moved and this is where a qualified arborist with decades of experience in transplanting trees is a must. O’Brien’s Tree Care has extensive experience in the safe transplanting of trees of all sizes and species, providing sound advice for maintenance after the move.
Not only can trees be safely transplanted, but this can in some cases improve their chances of longevity and growth. Obviously, great care must be taken when carrying out this process. The removal, transportation, replanting and maintenance must be meticulously planned and carried out by an experienced professional that understands what a particular tree species needs to flourish in its new home.
Transplanting Trees Requires Careful Planning
O’Brien’s Tree Care, Southeast Queensland’s premier tree service has years of experience in safely transplanting trees to new locations. When a tree is to be transplanted we have a checklist and suitability criteria which must be adhered to if the tree is to survive and thrive. Our goal is to carry out any transplant safely, taking every possible factor into consideration before going ahead with a sound plan of action.
Any tree will typically lose up to 70% of its root system during the transplanting phase, so it’s critical to minimise shock by making a clear plan before going ahead. Checking the new soil quality, for possible underground pipes, drainage, and leaving adequate room for the particular species’ root system are all critical factors. In short, replicating as much as possible the organic environment of the original planting area is the key goal.
The actual route to the transplanting must be carefully planned as well to ensure that no power lines will be struck. Finally, some post-transplanting maintenance is essential to make certain the tree settles in and thrives in its new home. Our decades of experience and knowledge of local tree species means we can provide invaluable advice in regards to getting the best results possible after the move.
