Instant shade, just add tree trucks.

I feel like we’ve just about accomplished what we set out to do…make it look like the house has been there forever. As part of the original land owner’s subdivision, there was a county requirement to plant several trees along the perimeter. We even had to file a bond for several thousand dollars before we could get our grading permit to ensure this obligation was met. We looked at a few nurseries, but we felt like all the smaller trees available would get lost with the old house. We wound up getting extremely lucky and found another option…a tree mover! Why not?
Ace Tree Movers specializes in transplanting large trees…and they have some really big trees available. I think he said they can do up to a 10″ diameter trunk with their spade truck. I’m sure they can do much bigger, but 8″-10″ is about as big as you can go before getting into oversized loads and special hauling permits. Timing is everything, and Ace was trying to thin their existing stands to allow other trees to grow larger. As such, they were extremely gracious in pricing.

The process was simple, the spade truck came to the property and dug the intended planting location. I think it was about 10 or 15 minutes to set the spade and dig the whole…a heck of a lot faster than hand digging! Especially when you’re digging a 50″ or 60″ wide hole 4′ deep for the rootball.

The best part was they took the dirt with them! It seems when you’re working outside around your property you can’t ever get rid of the extra dirt from landscaping projects, but you always have to bring more in when you need it. Frustrating. Anyway, the driver/operator took a lot of time with each planting location to determine the best way to position any less desirable sides to the tree. He used that information to dig the tree from the proper side based on the position of the truck at the planting location. I think it’s alot more art than science at that point. After tying the branches and digging the tree, they wrap it to protect for the drive and bring it on over.

After double checking she’s plumb and true they ease the blades out of the soil and voila! Instant shade!

We wound up planting 13 trees total, most were much smaller than this 30′ Sycamore, but we still were able to include a couple 18′-24′ Red Maples and a 20′+ Pin Oak which quickly aged our overall look and feel of the property.

Driveway, some walkways to the front and side door and a couple of planting beds are coming in the weeks ahead. As I said at the start of this post, I really feel like we’ve accomplished what we set out to do…Make it look like the house has always stood where it is now.
