From planting a single tree to developing a major garden project, we can help.

Choosing a professional tree planting service

Planting trees is very rewarding but there are plenty of hazards to trip you up along the way. By working with a professional tree surgeon you’re tapping into a wealth of knowledge that goes beyond just tree planting.

It all starts with the environment: the lay of the land, exposure, soil quality and even the composition of the garden, we can help you make the right decision for your space.

Through our networks we’re able to source the healthiest plants, giving your new tree the best chance of survival. We can also take away the strain of planting and give tips as to how best to support the new tree as it grows.

We’ve planted trees across East Lothian and within Edinburgh and not just in private gardens. For example, boundary hedgerows, woodland planting and orchards. Take a look at the full list of tree planting services below.

Screening Tree Planting

Evergreen trees are ideal for screening, they can also be used in conjunction with fence panels, where we’d plant trees as a ‘hedge on stilts’ further increasing the height and privacy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do trees sometimes need to be felled?2020-11-10T16:52:00+00:00

Tree felling is the action of cutting down a tree to improve the safety an area or to prevent disease from spreading. Removing a tree from a public space or near a home is often a last resort when remedial work will not be enough to ensure safety for people, property or plants.

When is the best time to prune a tree?2020-11-10T16:51:40+00:00

We generally advise against pruning trees in spring, this is when the sap rises up and the leaves begin to come out. During autumn, trees draw back in the nutrients they need to survive the winter. Pruning in autumn can cause stress, resulting in disease or even death of the tree.
