It's not just about trees.
Tree Planting Service
Not enough time or a bad back? We plant what we sell. We'll plant other
people's trees too.
Just like the plumber, there is a $60 minimum charge just for showing up.
That covers me and my truck coming to the job. Normal price will
be about $5 per gallon pot size. 7 gallon maximum. (MY back
doesn't do trees bigger than that.) This is planting on reasonably level
ground where there is room for my auger. It's also assuming that
you don't have rock quarry disguised as a yard.
Price includes digging the hole, placing the tree, mulching with heavy
duty fabric mulch, watering in, and first dose of fertilizer. It does not
include hauling away the extra dirt, although I will take the pots. I
will require access to a water tap. Let me know if I need to bring
my own hose.
So if you want a privacy screen of 8 three gallon white spruce with
7 two gallon choke cherries between them, it would cost:
60 + 8 x 3 x 5 + 7 x 2 x 5 = 60 + 120 + 70 = $250. That's just the
planting. There is no delivery charge for the trees if you're paying me
to plant them.
Do you want something specific? You need rooted cuttings of a particular
poplar? Special Willow? Call me. Tell me your needs. I'll write up
Cut your own Christmas Tree.
Want to cut your own scots pine Christmas tree? I have a small selection
that are large enough to make a nice Christmas tree.
Willing to have a small tree? Consider a live tree. Bring it in for the
holiday, store carefully outside. (I'll tell you how.) Next spring, plant it
in your yard, park, or at the cottage.
Seedlings as favours
Putting on a wedding? Throwing a big party? Want to bring in people to your spring sale?
Seedlings are available for a short period of time in spring. I can also
arrange for small trees in small pots at most times of the year -- but
it can take a year's notice to grow and pot them. Just part of our
Trees as center pieces.
With suitable notice I can provide trees as center pieces. Tree
size can be as short as 6" or as tall as 5 feet.
Bring me special pots, and I'll re-pot them for attractive display.
Or just wrap the black plastic pot they come in in florists foil.
Outdoor wedding chapel.
One of my forests has a tiny clearing in it where a large poplar fell some
years ago. The spruce trees on either side are tall enough that direct
sun never touches it. If you have Druidic or pagan leanings; if the idea
of a wedding in the woods has appeal, give me a call.
Want to see my forests? A casual walk with lots of stops. Content will
vary by time of year. Trails are NOT wheel chair accessible, and if you use
a cane, you may have trouble.
