Process for Mature Tree Planting Services:
Find the Optimal Location: We begin by identifying the ideal location for the planting pit and ensure the soil type and position is correct for the proposed tree.
Prepare for Planting: Our team excavates a planting pit slightly larger than the root ball of the tree, ensuring the bottom of the pit is free draining and de-compacted.
Gentle Tree Placement: The tree is carefully lowered into the pit by avoiding using the stem or crown of the tree to support its weight.
Anchor Installation (if required): If necessary, we install underground platypus tree anchors to support the tree while it establishes its roots.
Installation: To finish the planting we install perforated watering / aeration pimples around the tree’s roots, positioning them halfway between the soil and the bottom of the root ball.
Soil Enrichment: We enhance the soil by mixing a tree and shrub compost with the remaining subsoil dug from the planting pit. This mixture is used to fill the remaining 75% of the root ball, ensuring it covers just the top of the root ball/nursery line.
Mulch Application: To finish the planting, we install a circle of mulch over the root ball, ideally wider than the canopy of the tree.
Client Handover: Armed with all the information needed we hand the care of the tree over to you. Our support doesn’t end there as we offer unlimited phone and email assistance.
