    Hand digging and handling large specimen plant material is the backbone of our business. Once a tree is sold, it goes through our routine process before it lands in its new home. Depending on the time of year, we start by hydrating the tree through initially hand trenching the root ball and filling with water and/or a root bio-stimulant. We follow up by hand digging the entire root ball, cutting individual roots and shaping the ball as necessary. The art of burlapping and drum lacing is then completed so the tree is ready to be lifted from its hole. We have custom straps and specialized machinery to gently lift the trees out of the ground to take them to a staging area to be ready for transport.

    We utilize custom drop-deck trailers with specialized side boards and framework to properly secure the trees for their final destination. Careful attention to properly tying in branches within the confines of the trailers and securing the root balls is paramount for a successful and safe delivery. These tedious but necessary tasks are just part of our normal operations as we strive to ensure the least amount of stress as part of the moving process.
