Tree Planting near Rochester, Minnesota

Proper Planning For Tree Planting

Proper placement of a new tree or shrub is crucial to the long-term health and well-being of the plant.  

If you’re planting multiple trees, or just adding a tree in a yard that already has a few trees in it, correct spacing between trees is critical. If trees are too close together, they will grow into one another, and this can cause structural problems that can end up harming all the trees involved. 

Another crucial concern when planting a tree or shrub is ensuring it is planted at the proper depth. If it’s planted too deep or not deep enough, the plant’s roots can be deprived of sufficient nutrients, which can eventually kill the tree or shrub. 

Tree Trimming Near Southeast Minnesota

Post Planting Care: Tree Trimming

Once you’ve planted your trees and shrubs, proper maintenance is important, and part of that maintenance is tree trimming, also known as tree pruning. 

Pruning is done to clean your trees and shrubs of dead or diseased branches.  

Having pruning conducted by a certified arborist can safely improve the structure of your trees and ensure they stay strong for years to come.

Mulching nearing Southeast Minnesota


Mulching, when done correctly, can lower landscape bedding maintenance and provide beneficial support to the flora in the landscape setting.  

While mulch is available in an array of colors, textures, and materials, using the proper type of mulch for a landscape project is important, and understanding how much should be applied is crucial to the health and survival of the landscape plants.  

Our professionals can determine the best types of mulch to suit your tree and landscaping needs and, by using various colors and textures, help create an easily maintainable and visually appealing, inviting environment.
