Transplanting

Love it. Move it. Keep it.

There are many reasons that trees (and occasionally large shrubs) need to be relocated, or transplanted. From home additions to a plant just overgrowing its spot, BIG TREES TODAY excels at transplanting existing trees. It is in these situations that our twenty-plus years of experience are most critically helpful.

Several factors are involved in determining the "movability" of any particular plant. They include the size, specie, distance to be moved, and available access. Often we can offer the customer a "rough estimate" over the phone; other times an on-site appraisal is necessary.

Using professional transplanting technology, trees up to 12" diameter are usually transplantable. An adequately sized rootball is the key to success! We've had remarkable success with some much larger trees, as you'll see in our photos (click on photos to enlarge)!
