Tree Planting

And Transplanting Too!

Trees Are A Valuable Asset
With Many Benefits

A new tree is a lifetime investment that adds more value to your home with each passing year - but only if it's planted correctly. And that isn't as easy as it may look.

Expert knowledge of tree planting best practices is essential to ensure fast growth and long-term survival of your new tree.

Choosing the Right Tree

To take advantage of the many benefits trees offer, it's important to have an expert evaluate your landscape and select the right tree for your growing conditions.

Selecting a tree that that will thrive here in New Jersey and, more specifically, on your property, depends on a range of factors such as:

  • local weather conditions
  • microclimates on your property
  • regional pests and diseases
  • your soil type
  • amount of sunlight in the planting location
  • availability of irrigation

The Certified Arborists at Alpine Tree will work directly with you to determine the best tree species for your yard and recommend the ideal location(s) for planting.

Moving A Tree

For trees on your property that are not in the most ideal growing spot, we offer transplanting services. Transplanting is a precise process best completed by a knowledgeable tree care professional.

Before a tree can be moved, it must be dug up, preserving as much of the rootball as necessary and disturbing it as little as possible. Depending on the size of the tree, this could require heavy equipment and/or a sizable crew.

If you want to maximize the survival rate of your transplanted trees, give us a call at 973-964-7798. We'll let you know what it will take to properly dig up and transplant it, and whether the tree can realistically survive being transplanted.


We plant according to professional tree care industry standards, many of which are not commonly known or followed by landscapers or homeowners. Not following these standards leads to girdling roots, uprooting, or a tree that fails to grow properly – none of which you likely want to have happen.
