Tree Installation
Our seasoned staff can procure and install container grown and ball and burlap trees. We also have the ability to take field grown trees, up to 12” in caliper, and install them directly into your property with a tree spade.

Installing trees in your Charleston SC property can be a great way to add beauty and value to your property. However, it is important to do it correctly to ensure that the trees thrive.

The first step is to choose the right trees for your location. Consider the climate, soil conditions, and amount of sunlight your property receives. You should also choose trees that are appropriate for the size of your yard.

Once you have chosen your trees, it is time to prepare the planting site. The soil should be loose and well-drained. If the soil is compacted, you will need to loosen it with a shovel or rototiller. You should also add some compost or other organic matter to the soil to improve drainage and fertility.

Next, dig a hole that is twice as wide and as deep as the root ball of the tree. Be sure to loosen the sides of the hole with a spade so that the roots can spread out easily.

Place the tree in the hole and adjust it so that the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil. Backfill the hole with soil, tamping it down as you go. Water the tree thoroughly and mulch around the base to help retain moisture.

After planting, you will need to water the tree regularly, especially during the first year. You should also fertilize the tree according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

With proper care, your trees will thrive in Charleston SC for many years to come.

Task was to cut down and remove huge six foot diameter live oak that had split to the roots and half the tree had hit the ground. Randy and his crew finished most of the job on the first day and cleaned up the remainder the next day. Unbelievably professional and competent crew with top-notch equipment. I recommend his service without qualification.

The Rawson crew is professional, quick and clean. We had them remove four large diseased oaks that were threatening structures on our property. They arrived on time and got right to work on the intricate project.
