Transplanting and Installing Trees
Why would you need a plant transplanted anyways? Well, some plants are not grown directly in the landscape. For these plants, the seeds are first grown in a nursery or seedbed, separately in a nurtured environment. The seeds will grow into small plants (seedlings) and are then transferred from the nursery to the final destination; this is a process known as transplanting. At Millennial Landscaping, we use a process that ensures long-term sustainability for our transplanted vegetation – Here are some of the benefits of our specific techniques.
Consider the Landscape
Always take a look at where you intend to plant the trees. If you expect the tree to grow tall or to considerably expand then you should give it enough space for that expansion. You should also consider plant species as well as soil type and moisture content before transplanting. You may want to check with the USDA Trees hardiness Zone Maps for guidance.
4 Benefits of Transplanting
1. Transplanting makes it possible to select only healthy seedlings, which should grow into prosperous plants.
2. It promotes better shoot development.
3. The process encourages root penetration in the soil.
4. Transplanting enables you to plant at the right intervals, which is good for uniform availability of sunlight, water and nutrients to the plants.
