Choosing which tree to plant and when can be daunting, but at Arborlife we have years of experience selecting the best tree for you. The most important considerations are root health, weather, soil conditions and aftercare.
Planting is best done between October and April. We try to avoid planting in waterlogged or frozen soil.
Bare-root plants should only be planted in late winter or early spring while the plants are still dormant. Avoid planting large trees in Autumn. They can be risky to transplant in any season, but are particularly so when foliage is present.
Container-grown plants can be planted any time of the year, but are easier to care for if planted in autumn or winter, as they need less watering.
Bare-root and rootballed trees and shrubs are only available in autumn and winter. They should be planted immediately, but if this is not possible, then they can be heeled in (temporary planting in the soil to prevent the roots drying out) until planting is possible.
