Large Curly Willow Planting

Jul 12, 2013 |

 

This week we planted a few of our Tree Farm trees on a property. It’s an exciting process to watch because large trees literally transform a landscape in the few hours it takes to install them. At this property we also had the chance to check on crape myrtle trees that we planted years ago. They seem to have established themselves beautifully.

 

Take a look at the process of moving a large tree:

The stone walkway was removed, planks were laid and the garden plants were tied to ensure that there was no damage done to the site
