Planting or transplanting trees and shrubs is a significant investment when landscaping. Properly placed and maintained trees and shrubs add appeal and value to your property. However, tree planting is not straight forward. There are many factors to consider when selecting the ideal trees for your landscape.
Elite Trees takes into account both your requirements and those of your plants. We consider the planting’s function such as ornamental, shade, windbreak or privacy. We also advise on the selection of different tree and shrub species as not all varieties suit all locations. The form, size and growth habit of the trees or shrubs also depend on the species. Finally, we take into account your site conditions including soil type, drainage, exposure, space, traffic and construction.
Elite Trees can source and plant trees and shrubs, from single specimens to bulk lots, using our expertise to ensure the long term success. We also provide care instructions and can assist with ongoing maintenance such as tree pruning.
Elite Trees also relocate trees of special significance or trees unfortunately planted in the wrong spot. Our qualified arborists can safely transplant your favourite trees to a new location. The cooler temperatures, of June through to August, are the ideal time for transplanting to ensure the best outcome.
