Tree Planting Services
It may surprise you to learn that Dallas-Fort Worth is home to one of the largest urban forests in the United States. It is easy to take our magnificent trees for granted; but, the demands of rapid population growth, pollution, poor tree maintenance, drought and the aging of our trees make it more important than ever to focus on urban reforestation.
According to the Texas Forest Service, due to persistent drought, new construction, poor maintenance, storms and other factors, we’ve lost 500 million trees in Texas over the last few years.
By applying skilled pruning, planting and specialized plant health care techniques, our goal is to help you keep the trees you love, and keep our North Texas region green.
Large shade trees such as Live Oak, Cedar Elms and Chinquapin Oak trees strategically planted around a home can reduce energy (heating and cooling) consumption by up to 25%!
Ready to start planting your part of the urban forest? Give us a call at 214.528.2266 or 817.581.4502, or email us.

LARGE SHADE TREES
These trees will need upwards of 60-feet of surrounding space to grow properly and cannot be planted on easements or under power lines. While we love Live Oaks for their classic beauty and stature, Cedar Elm and Chinquapin Oak trees are excellent additions to the landscape. They’ll easily shade your home or business and because of their size, will soak up the most carbon and other pollutants from the air.

These trees will need about 40-feet of surrounding space grow to their full size. Perfect for moderate sized urban landscapes. Monterey Oak provide some much needed diversity and they are less susceptible to deadly Oak Wilt disease. Looking for lovely white summer blooms? Crape Myrtle ‘Natchez’ is a great choice. For stunning fall color, Chinese Pistache is a classic beauty.

For shaded areas of the landscape, or if you are in need of a smaller understory tree, Japanese maple ‘Bloodgood’ is a striking specimen. Oklahoma Redbud and Yaupon Holly are both excellent trees for smaller urban landscapes or as features in garden beds in sunny locations.

We only stake trees when absolutely necessary. Most often, staking your new tree is not beneficial. Your arborist will assess whether or not staking is recommended. We use a specialized system for staking trees that has a minimal visual impact on your landscape. Additional charges may apply for staking services.
*Planting services are provided within a 25-mile radius of our Dallas-Fort Worth offices. Give us a call and we'll review your requested planting location. Additional planting service and delivery charges may apply outside of our standard planting area. **Planting location must be clear of debris, irrigation heads/lines, tree stumps, utility lines, etc. Homeowner must locate and mark any irrigation heads/lines or utility lines prior to site selection.
