An issue we often hear about as well as encounter is that, urban environments can be harsh places for trees to reside and prosper. You’ve got to think about factors such as pollution, physical damage due to vehicles, lawnmowers, or vandals, a lack of watering or fertilization and much more.
If we’re asked to come up with a good proposal to plant and develop tree growth within an urban area, we put a lot of thought into this. These are just some of the factors we consider before anything is actually started:
- Tree species choosing
- Site conditions
- Adequate space planning
We’ve seen many trees planted in urban areas along sidewalks that have died or are suffering. For example, you’ll notice there’s an issue when the sidewalk you happen to be walking along is cracked and tree roots are exposed. This was a bad planting job in a poorly chosen area with simply not enough cubic space.
We take all of these things into account before we begin any planting and then we put a maintenance plan into effect immediately so that the resulting trees that have been positioned thrive properly.
