Tree planting

Posted by admin on Tuesday Aug 24, 2010 Under

The average annual death rate of newly planted trees in cities is one in ten.  This is not caused by vandalism but by poor planting techniques and maintenance.  The figure increases dramatically when larger trees are transplanted and the cost for tree loss alone, was calculated at over £10 million per year in 1995.  At the same time, planning conditions often place a requirement on a developer to ensure that newly planted trees are maintained for a period of up to five years.

Future Arbor have responded positively to this challenge and we are immensely proud of our success rates in tree planting.  This is why, irrespective of the reasons for a tree’s failure, Future Arbor offer a 100% replacement guarantee for the duration of all termed contracts.

Our approach

cherry rowTrees have been an integral part of city landscapes for centuries, their major aesthetic and environmental contributions to our surroundings are well understood.  Tree planting is an investment for the future and, if undertaken correctly, will significantly enhance a development or location with proven increases in property values and the well-being of local residents.

We offer an initial site surveying service and use cable avoidance and underground radar in street tree planting situations.  We promote the planting of indigenous species in accordance with local biodiversity action plans, however we respect the fact that you may wish to plant alternatives and we are happy to advise with regard to species suitability.  We always select the healthiest trees with the best rooting habit, to guarantee long-term success.

We know that careful site preparation beforehand and regular aftercare and maintenance are significant contributors to our planting success and we promote regular checks, watering, pruning and tree-base care.  We offer a variety of tree planting and tree maintenance packages to suit all budgets and requirements.
