How To Plant Trees

Planting trees may seem like an easy task but when tree planting is required for miles and miles of ground, it required a specialist tree planting company just like C & H Tree Surgery. Whether you’re looking to plant trees at larger commercial grounds or within a forest, we are happy to take on all commercial and council work. In its most basic form, these are the following steps that should be taken when planting a tree;-

1.) We will dig the hole approximately three times wider than the pot containing your trees.

2.) Secondly, we will soak the earth-covered roots in water and loosen up the packed soil.

3.) Thirdly, we will then begin to plant the tree in the ground. At this stage, it’s crucial to ensure that the roots join the tree base at the surface.

4.) Once the tree is firmly planted, our team will then begin to refill the hole around the newly planted tree with soil and firm it down nicely.

5.) The final stage of the process – which is often mistakenly forgotten about – is to add mulch and leave an area free around the stem before watering the tree and giving it the nutrients it needs to flourish.


The upkeep of your dream gardening area may take maintenance and a lot of looking after.  That’s why we offer tailored upkeep services for small and large planting projects.  If you would like ongoing help and assistance from our professional gardening team, we are more than happy to help.

How can tree planting enhance commercial spaces?

Tree planting can enhance commercial spaces in several ways, making them more attractive, inviting, and beneficial for businesses and their customers. There are several ways in which tree planting can positively impact commercial areas. For example, trees add natural beauty and visual appeal to commercial spaces. Moreover, tree planting within commercial spaces can also help to increase brand perception and assist with outdoor seating areas.

Can tree planting help with health and well-being?

Yes, of course. Access to green spaces and trees has been linked to improved mental health and well-being. Spending time in natural environments can reduce stress and anxiety, promote physical activity, and enhance overall quality of life. Especially during stressful times amongst commercial settings, trees can help to relieve stress and give people an outlet.

When is the best time of year to plant trees?

The best time of year to plant trees can vary depending on the climate and the specific tree species you are planting. However, in general, the ideal time to plant trees is during the dormant season. This is when the tree is not actively growing, and it can focus its energy on establishing its root system without the demands of new foliage or flowering.

How do I care for young trees after planting?

Caring for young trees after planting is crucial to ensure their healthy establishment and long-term growth. Watering young trees regularly, especially during the first year, is imperative to control positive growth of newly planted trees. Moreover, inspecting the trees regularly during early growth is also important to spot any early signs of pest infestation. 

Where should I plant trees to maximise their impact?

To maximise the impact of tree planting, it’s essential to consider various factors that influence a tree’s ability to thrive and provide the most benefits. Key considerations for planting trees to achieve the greatest impact may include the locations, surrounding areas, and other types of exposure.
