Tree & Shrub Planting


A new tree is a lifetime investment and will add value to your home - but only if it's planted correctly. And that isn't as easy as it may look.

If you're thinking about planting a new tree, here are some of the things to consider -

  • Is this the right tree for your location?
  • How wide and deep should the planting hole be?
  • What's the trunk flare and where should it be relative to the soil level?
  • Have you removed all constraints that could affect future growth?
  • Should you amend the soil in the planting hole?
  • Does the tree need to be staked? If so, how and for how long?
  • How often and how deeply should the tree be watered after it's planted?

Proper planting is essential to the future health of your trees and shrubs.

The experts at Green Environs can help you select from a wide variety of trees or shrubs appropriate to your location - we'll even pick them up and deliver them right to your property. Plus, we can handle trees up to 15 feet tall.

Have Green Environs plant your trees and rest assured that your investment will be properly taken care of.


Transplanting a tree or shrub also involves properly planting it - but first you have to dig it up so it can be moved.

The key is to dig up as much of the rootball as necessary and disturb it as little as possible. Depending on the size of the tree or plant, that could take some heavy equipment to do it right.

If you want to maximize the survival rate of your transplanted trees or shrubs, give us a call at 203-948-1500. We'll let you know what it'll take to properly remove and plant whatever it is you want to move.
