Tree Moving Service
Practicality Brown can transplant large trees, as we have the appropriate expertise and specialised tree moving equipment. We undertake tree moving on a regular basis for a number of private and commercial organisations throughout the UK.
We have Tree Spade machines which are capable of transplanting trees up to 60cm in girth with our own in house machines and up to 100cm in girth for larger projects with a 3m diameter tree spade. Our Gallery has more photos showing our tree spade machines in action.
Tree Transplanting Service
Practicality Brown can offer two different tree spades according to tree size, which are available on a price per tree or day work rates. Please contact us for a quote.
We have two Tree Spades available:
Practicality Brown have over 30 years’ experience in tree transplanting and have several Tree Spade machines, including an Optimal 1100 mounted on a Kramer 520 Compact Loader and a Big John 1.6m 4×4 Truck-Mounted Tree spade.
Machines can be supplied with ‘flotation tyres’ for work on sensitive ground, are operated by experienced, trained operators and backed up by a skilled planting team, if needed, for securing the trees or assisting with planting.
We specialise in moving medium sized trees 30-50cm girth for parks, private estates and landowners, golf and sports clubs. This service is also invaluable for Landscape Contractors to extend their own range of capabilities.
Why use a Tree spade to transplant a tree?
A purpose designed tree spade efficiently holds together the rootball during the transplanting process, which is vital to successful tree relocation.
Why Transplant Trees?
Key reasons our clients like us to move their trees;
- Changing garden/landscape or building designs
- Replacing with more appropriate or native species
- Relocating for planning requirements
- Thinning out overcrowded woodland and copses
- Moving a number of existing trees is often less expensive that buying a new ones
