Tree Planting & Selection

Commercial-scale tree planting services in Tasmania, with a focus on long-term growth and plant health.

We recognise the value trees and vegetation can provide to urban areas, and use our academic and practical knowledge of tree health to plant trees with long-term growth and health as a primary goal.

Tree selection is an important aspect of urban forestry because it affects the overall health and longevity of the tree population in a city. Choosing the right tree species for a specific location can help to ensure that the tree thrives and provides the desired benefits. Factors we consider when selecting a tree species include the tree’s growth habits, size at maturity, and tolerance for specific environmental conditions such as soil type, temperature, and precipitation. It’s important to select species that are well-adapted to the local area, as these trees are more likely to be resistant to pests and diseases. Urban foresters also need to consider the potential hazards or challenges of the specific site, such as underground utilities, overhead utility lines and foot traffic. Using the right tree species in the right place can help to ensure the long-term health and sustainability of the urban forest

Selecting ‘climate ready’ tree species is important because they are better able to adapt to the changing weather patterns and extreme weather events. As the climate changes, temperatures and precipitation patterns are shifting, and traditionally selected tree species may not be well-suited to the new conditions. Climate ready tree species are typically drought-tolerant, heat-tolerant, and resistant to pests and diseases. By selecting these species, we can help to ensure the long-term health and sustainability of the urban forest. Additionally, climate-ready tree species can help to mitigate the effects of climate change on the urban environment, reducing the urban heat island effect and providing shade to cool streets and buildings. Choosing climate ready tree species is an important aspect of urban forestry and is necessary to ensure the resilience of urban forests and the benefits they provide for future generations.

A tree selection matrix is a tool we employ to evaluate and compare different tree species based on specific criteria such as growth habits, size, tolerance to environmental conditions and pests, and overall suitability for a particular location. The matrix can be used to help us make informed decisions about which tree species to plant and where, to ensure long-term health and sustainability of the urban forest

Our company offers a comprehensive urban forestry service that can help cities and communities create and maintain healthy, sustainable tree populations. Our service includes tree planting in the urban environment and tree maintenance. We work with councils and communities to implement their tree planting plans that take into account the specific environmental conditions and challenges of their areas.

Our tree care services include pruning, and pest management to ensure that the trees stay healthy and continue to provide benefits such as reducing air pollution and slowing stormwater runoff. By choosing our service, cities and communities can be confident that they are creating and maintaining a healthy, sustainable urban forest that benefits both the environment and the community.
