Tree Care: Tree & Shrub Planting & Transplanting

The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now. -- Proverb

We are experts in planting trees and shrubs!

The trees and shrubs we plant now have the potential to outlive us. It is important to practice proper care and maintenance, starting from the time they are planted, so that generations to come may enjoy safe and healthy trees. Whether you're seeking a replacement or adding to a landscape, consult with an Almstead arborist to find the right tree for your location and ensure that it's planted correctly.


We say a lot in the arboriculture industry that the best way to care for tree injuries is to prevent them from happening at all. Proper selection, placement and planting are three of the most important factors one should consider when planning the installation of a new tree. Choosing a non-native tree or a site with improper soil conditions or inadequate space for root and crown growth can lead to the premature death of a newly planted tree or shrub.

Almstead has the knowledge, experience and equipment to do the job right!

  • Plant Knowledge: We are arborists and have expert knowledge of plants, the local region, and diseases that can affect trees and shrubs.
  • Plant Selection: We offer you a large inventory -- from small to large trees. Our arborists will make recommendations and share you links or photographs of the plant. We can even take you to the location.
  • Site Selection: We help you choose the most appropriate plant for the location and make sure it can grow and thrive there. We’ll determine the best placement for your new tree to avoid in ground obstacles likes sewer pipes and height limitations like utility lines.
  • Equipment & Storage: We do wide-scale planting in the region so we have the right equipment and storage facilities -- including a nursery to store trees temporarily.
  • We Work Within Your Budget: Tell us what you are looking for -- and your budget -- and we will find the right specimen for you.
  • Ornamental Shrub Planting and Care: Ornamental shrubs and grass add dimension and beauty to your property year round. We can plant them on your landscape and take care of them throughout the year.
  • Tree Care: We can maintain the health and appearance of your trees and plants to ensure their longevity. We also work with your landscape designer or irrigation specialist to make sure your plants and trees look their best and thrive for years to come.

Knowing what tree to plant as well as how and where to plant it can make all the difference. Our arborists have the training and experience to ensure that it is done correctly.
