Why Hire A Professional For Planting Trees in North London?

While it may be tempting to undertake tree planting as a DIY project, hiring a specialist to plant your trees offers numerous advantages. 

Here are some compelling reasons to hire a professional for your tree-planting project:

Expertise and Experience

Our qualified arborists and tree surgeons have extensive knowledge of tree species, planting techniques, and environmental considerations. Their experience and expertise ensure that suitable trees are selected and planted correctly for optimal growth and health. We can also provide valuable advice on aftercare and ongoing maintenance.

Equipment and Resources

Tree planting, especially for large-scale projects, will often require specialised tools and equipment that may not be readily available to homeowners or businesses. We have all the equipment and resources necessary to handle projects of any scale. From large machinery for digging and planting to specific tools required for stabilisation and protection, we’re well-equipped to deliver a high-quality and efficient tree-planting service.

Time and Cost Efficiency

Tree planting can be time-consuming and labour-intensive, especially for inexperienced individuals. Investing in our professional tree planting service saves you time and effort, allowing you to focus on other priorities. Better still, we can complete the job more safely and efficiently, reducing the risk of mistakes or damage to the trees. While professional services have a cost, the long-term benefits and peace of mind outweigh the initial investment.

We can offer guidance on watering schedules, fertilisation, and seasonal pruning upon planting your trees. 

Alternatively, we can plan, schedule, and provide these services as a complete solution to promote optimal health for your trees.

Factors to Consider for Successful Tree Planting

While tree planting may seem straightforward, you must make some vital considerations to help ensure the trees’ successful establishment, growth and long-term health. 

If you employ the services of a genuine planting professional, such as North London Tree Surgeons, they’ll assess the suitability of your ideas and highlight any considerations. 

Let’s explore some of the key considerations:

Site Suitability

Different tree species have varying requirements, so evaluating the site’s suitability is essential. 

Before planting any trees, considering the soil type, light exposure, drainage, and available space is crucial for their health and long-term survival. 

We have a wealth of planting knowledge, enabling us to assess the suitability of your site and then provide various tree-planting solutions based on your requirements. 

Tree Selection

Choosing a suitable tree species for the intended location is critical for a successful planting project. 

When selecting a tree, considerations for growth rate, mature size, maintenance requirements, and overall aesthetic appeal will help determine the most suitable specimen.  

Native species are often best suited as they’re well-adapted to the local climate and soil conditions. 

Additionally, selecting a diverse range of trees can enhance biodiversity and promote a healthy ecosystem.

Our planting team has an impressive knowledge of different tree species and their unique characteristics, allowing them to identify the best trees to select for your project. 

Soil Preparation

Soil analysis and proper soil preparation are crucial for establishing healthy, thriving trees. 

Poor soil with nutrient deficiencies or imbalances can slow the rate of growth. Compacted soil may restrict roots, leading to stability and nutrient uptake issues. 

Soil preparation often involves loosening the soil, adding organic matter or fertiliser, and ensuring proper drainage.

As part of our tree planting service, we always test the ground to identify any issues and prepare the soil accordingly. 

Tree Planting Techniques

The success of a planting project largely depends on planting the tree correctly using industry-recognised techniques. 

Planting trees at the correct depth, with sufficient space for root expansion, is important to give trees the best start possible.

Regular watering and mulching are also employed to promote healthy growth and prevent weed competition.

Stakes, ties and cages are the perfect tools to ensure trees remain upright, stable and undamaged during infancy. 

We plant trees using the latest planting tools and techniques and follow any guidelines the supplier provides. 

Aftercare and Maintenance

Beyond the initial planting in the ground, newly planted trees require ongoing care and maintenance to ensure they thrive for years to come.

Aftercare and maintenance include regular watering, mulching, formative pruning, and monitoring for pests and diseases.

The Benefits of Planting Trees in North London

Environmental Benefits

One of the primary advantages of planting trees is their significant environmental benefit. Trees are natural air purifiers, absorbing harmful pollutants and releasing clean oxygen into the atmosphere. Photosynthesis also helps mitigate the effects of climate change by reducing carbon dioxide levels. Moreover, trees are crucial in maintaining biodiversity and providing vital habitat for birds, insects, and other wildlife.

Aesthetic and Property Value Enhancement

In addition to their environmental benefit, trees can enhance your property’s value and aesthetic appeal. Whether you have a small residential garden or a large commercial space, strategically placed trees can create a visually stunning landscape. Research has shown that properties with well-maintained trees and green spaces demand a higher market value and tend to attract more buyers or tenants.

Health and Well-being

The presence of trees has a proven positive impact on our physical and mental well-being. Trees help to filter out noise pollution and create a calming and peaceful environment. They also provide shade, reducing the risk of heat-related illnesses during hot summer months. Scientific studies have shown that spending time in green spaces with trees can reduce stress, improve mood, and increase overall feelings of well-being.
