Tree Moving And Planting Service

Prairie Rose Greenhouse & Nursery now offers tree moving/planting service. 

We can move: 

  • Deciduous tree – trunk diameter  2 to 3 inches
  • Evergreen tree – height  5 to 7 feet

We can plant:

  • Up to 25 gal potted trees.

We can remove dead trees:

  • Up to 5 inches trunk diameter.

Things to consider:

  • There should be adequate access for the tree spade to the original site and the new site. Because the spade is in a fixed position, it is desirable to plan the move with access to the preferred side of the tree. Maintaining the same exposure is beneficial to tree establishment.
  • Locate existing power lines, underground septic systems, grade changes and note any restrictions they present;
  • There should be adequate space for the tree spade to operate safely. Our 44-inch tree spade requires approximately six feet around the tree that is unobstructed.
  • Current soil conditions should be relatively dry. If the soil is too wet, the heavy machinery will damage the soil structure. Turf should be protected with 10-12 inches of wood mulch or ¾” plywood.

Always contact the proper company or municipality for the location of underground utilities prior to digging. It is also important that you locate private lines such as irrigation systems, wiring for landscape lighting, water lines that serve water fountains and ponds, etc. In North Dakota, call 811  or contact a qualified professional contractor regarding the utility location prior to breaking ground.
