Steadfast Tree Care Focuses on Tree Removal and Other Landscaping Considerations in New Blog Post

Steadfast Tree Care, a professional tree care services company based in Ruther Glen, Virginia, has discussed the important considerations for residential tree removal and other landscaping activities in Ladysmith, in a recent blog post. It should be noted that while there are many factors to take into account in tree removal, it would be best to hire the services of tree experts. With that, one can be sure that they will offer the best recommendations. For instance, a healthy tree may need to be removed due to landscaping considerations or other factors. A better option might be to transplant the tree instead of felling it. More information about three removal and other landscaping considerations can be gleaned from

If you need a tree removal expert to guide you as you make the decision, talk to the experts at Steadfast Tree Care.

It should be noted, however, that transplanting a mature tree is more complicated than planting a new tree. Nevertheless, there a number of possible reasons why it would make sense to relocate a mature tree. These include home additions or landscaping projects that necessitate the removal of a tree; the fact that the tree has outgrown its present space and requires a location with more space; and the fact that the homeowner has relocated to a new address but would like to bring along his or her favorite tree.

Transplanting a tree is a difficult project and will first require root pruning the season before the tree is to be transplanted. Then it will require a lot of digging to remove the tree from its present location, and then more digging will also have to be done in the new location. And the tree with its root ball attached has to be transported to the new location. And finally, the care for the tree after the transplant is vital as well. For instance, homeowners and other property owners should not consider transplanting a tree at all if they will not be watering the tree for at least one year after transplanting.

Furthermore, as much of the tree’s root system have to be included in the transplanting as much as possible to maximize the probability of the success of the tree transplant. Those who are interested in reading other press releases about Steadfast Tree Care may want to check out

Another possible scenario is if the homeowner or property owner is forced to have a tree removed because of age or disease. It may be possible to have the tree replaced. After the tree has been cut down and after the tree removal services provider has ground the stump, what is left is usually a hole in the ground with some sawdust. The roots of the old tree are still there and these serve as the obstacle to planting a new tree on the same spot.

If the new tree has to planted in the exact same spot, there is a need to get rid of the sawdust and as many of the old roots as possible. This may require a lot of hard work, digging and chopping out the old roots to ensure that the new tree has adequate room for its roots. And for those who still have a tree stump, the way to handle it would be hasten its decomposition by drilling holes into it and filling the holes with one part top soil, one part compost, and one part high-nitrogen fertilizer. However, it should be noted that it will take one to three years for the stump and its roots to completely decompose.
