When you onboard professionals for tree service, planning is a vital step before transplanting starts. Southern Star Tree has a well-equipped and experienced team that can help you start on the right foot so that you don’t have to worry about future challenges.
When transplanting a fruit tree, the first thing to consider includes assessing the planting site. Our contractors can help assess your yard and recommend suitable planting areas that are not close to utility lines, driveways, and sidewalks. It’s important to envision what your tree will look like in the next ten years so that the branches don’t interfere with nearby structures or future landscaping projects.
The contractors at Southern Star Tree can help you choose a prime transplanting site that receives at least five hours of natural light, and the surrounding area is well-drained. With years of providing top-notch tree service, we can assess the fertility of your soil and amend it with compost if it’s not fertile enough for planting.
Timing is vital when you want to transplant a fruit tree. Although fruit trees can be planted at any time of the year, we recommend planting during the dormancy stage as you near spring, which is the prime growth period. When you work with a reputable and reliable tree company, you can leverage the extensive knowledge of their team to ensure you transplant at the most suitable time. If fruit trees are transplanted when they have developed buds or during their optimal season, they are likely to be affected by several factors that result from planting death.
When you transplant a fruit tree, it’s advisable to assess the age since it determines the techniques used and the type of tree care needed. Young trees that are less than three years old are easier to transplant compared to trees that are beyond three years. Failure to consider the age of the fruit tree intended for transplant can lead to tree death or leave it susceptible to a range of plant diseases. Southern Star Tree has an experienced team of tree experts who can guide the care needed for fruit trees of varying ages.
