Andrews Arboriculture offer the complete planting service from helping you choose the correct trees or shrubs for you location, purchasing and planting and then staking and mulching if necessary.

Planting Trees

In the UK most trees will benefit from being planted between mid-November to late March. This is when the tree roots are dormant and can cope better with being moved.

Andrew can offer advice on the various aspects of trees, you may want a particular bark type or leaf colour.

If you’re planting a single tree think about where you’re planting it in relation to your property. With some species of trees the roots and branches may spread beyond the boundaries of your property and trees can sometimes cause structural damage. Be aware of places where limbs may fall or roots might grow. Other things to consider when planting trees is the amount of shade they will create both on your property and neighbours, will they interfere with overhead power cables and will they be damaged by rabbits or deer while growing.

Planting Shrubs

With most shrubs now being sold in containers planting is an option at any time of the year, although this is still best done when the shrub is dormant. Shrubs can be bought in various sizes depending on your budget, some people can afford to go for the instant effect and buy large shrubs, while others may have to buy small and watch them grow. 

Again like with trees shrubs vary greatly, some giving beautiful autumn leaf color or maybe winter berries for the birds, Andrew will be able to advise on the beat plants for your needs.
