Tree Transplanting in Perth by Tree Surgeons of WA

Tree Surgeons of WA have been in operation since 1980, and in the nearly four decades since, our team have developed highly specialised methods of working with trees and shrubberies in Perth and the surrounding area. For that reason, we’ve naturally emerged as a leading WA expert on all things arboreal – from planting and pruning trees to moving them from one physical location to the next.  

Tree transplantation requires a great deal of skill and experience. It’s not as simple as merely uprooting the tree at one location and moving it to the next. Instead, it requires special preparations, a substantial amount of care and a keen eye for site selection.

A fully matured tree has an extensive and sophisticated network of roots, and over time it becomes uniquely acclimated to its specific location. Disrupting this symbiotic relationship between the tree and ground can prove detrimental to its health. That’s why we only undertake transplantations for relatively young subjects – generally saplings through to early mature trees.

Why Consider Tree Transplanting in Perth?

There are many reasons that a homeowner may want to look into the possibility of tree transplanting in Perth. However, the reason can usually be reduced to the fact that trees are one of the most valuable natural assets of any landscape.

Just consider the number of years its takes for a tree to reach maturity and really begin to flourish on a property. Even when a tree is only five or six years old, the prospect of removing it and starting over with a new sapling at a new location can be disheartening.

Similarly, as a property develops and expands, it may at times become apparent that a particular tree or shrub that has already been planted is no longer going to work for that location. But before you cut your losses and decide to remove the tree altogether, contact the Tree Surgeons of WA to see if transplanting that tree is an option.

Experts in Tree Transplantation

In order to be successful, tree transplantation has to take several different factors into account. There are also several important steps that need to be accomplished before the transplant is actually undertaken.

These are some of the steps involved:

  • Assessing the health of the tree and the likelihood of success
  • Selecting a site for a successful relocation
  • Root pruning
  • An after-care strategy to maximise the chances of success
