Advantages And Disadvantages Of Spaded And Nursery Trees

Author : abraham ciwolski

Similar to most things in life, there are positives and negatives associated with the landscaping options of spaded trees and nursery trees. Generally speaking, trees grown in nurseries are simpler to move because they have been affected by maintenance practices, like root pruning. Because of root pruning, it is typically easier to move trees that are grown in nurseries. It may cost more to transplant spaded trees, but if the tree will otherwise be lost or if its worth exceeds the expense of transporting it, the process could ultimately be successful.

Nursery trees have the benefit of being exposed to root pruning, which helps in the growth of the tree's most adaptable roots and contributes to ultimate health and the least amount of stress for the tree. However, tree spading, which is a popular method for moving and transplanting large trees from one site to another, saves work, planting time and years of upkeep on a young tree. Spading also does away with the possible risk of mower damage, which often happens to younger and smaller trees.

Field grown trees are recognized by their extensive root networks, which are even denser than those found on nursery grown trees. Nursery grown trees are defined as those trees, which have been cared for at least two years under "nursery conditions." To decrease the risk of injury to these types of trees, it is recommended that while transplanting them the ball-and-burlap method should be employed. Little trees with well developed root systems react well to this technique. Cutting should never be done in an effort for the tree to fit into a pre-designated hole as the roots need to have space to develop.

A tree spade can transplant many trees at any time of the year except if the ground is frozen. Firs, maples, and spruce trees are best transplanted in the cooler months of spring and early fall. For the purposes of retail sale or compact storage, commercial nurseries employ tree spades to lift large trees out of the earth.

Trees that have been raised in nurseries or that have been relocated from another location are frequently transplanted with the help of spades by arborists and landscape contractors. An "instant landscape" is created when landscape design companies dig up and move large trees from one location to the other. Tree spades are available in a variety of types and sizes and anyone involved in the task must have a general understanding of how spades work, and be knowledgeable of the sites where the tree spade will be utilized.
