Many details go into planting a tree to improve its chances of survival. After all, being taken out of the conditions you have been growing in and moving to a completely different environment can be a shock for a tree.

You may have the following questions about our Portland tree planting services:

  • How deep should the hole be? Of what diameter?

  • How deep should the root ball go underground?

  • Should the burlap sack come off or not?

  • Should the original dirt be returned to the hole, or should something else be used?

  • How do you plant the tree so that it grows straight?

  • How much water should be added initially?


We have 30+ years of experience providing Portland tree planting services. Let us help you choose the best kind of trees for your property. Build a landscape you can be confident will last.
