What do I do if I planted a large tree or shrub in the wrong spot?
When you realize that a large shrub or tree was planted in the wrong spot in your landscape, what do you do? The best way to avoid these moments is to plan from the start.
Are you experiencing one of those “oops!” moments when you realize that a large shrub or tree was planted in the wrong spot in your landscape? The best way to avoid these moments is to plan from the start. Before planting anything, we suggest you try to take a look into the future of your landscape and install plants that fit your future needs. Are you planning to build an addition onto your home? Will your recreational activities change in the future? How big will that tree or shrub you just brought home from the garden center get when it reaches maturity?
Sometimes, no matter how carefully you planned, a large tree or shrub needs to be removed from its current location. If you decide to try to relocate these plants, first consider hiring a professional with the equipment and knowledge to do the job. Digging and moving trees can be a difficult and very heavy proposition and is not a job for people who have health problems, or back conditions.
We have the ability to move a tree(s) from one location to another. This could mean repositioning a tree on a current property, moving from property to property, or new installations. Size does matter, this usually applies to “landscaping “ size trees (usually 12’ or below).
Before proceeding, please call us here at Sussex Tree to have the tree or shrub evaluated for any type of risk that may be involved. This procedure can be very stressful for the tree or shrub and could cause injury or death to the plant. Our certified arborists will be more than happy to help you in this situation.
