We provide a crew to help you plant. Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe. Tree planting can be a timely and difficult procedure. Our expert tree planting team in Ottawa can help you determine the right plan of action for your yard as well as what type of trees will be the most successful based on your space.

Planting native tree species helps re-establish the original ecosystem of the region. By planting a native tree species, you can have a meaningful and positive impact on the local birds, animals, and insects which underpin the local ecosystem. Native species also benefit from lower levels of maintenance as they are adapted to the area where they are planted.
If you are planning on planting a tree in soil that is sandy or with large amounts of clay, you will want to make sure that you mix in lots of compost. This ensures that your trees will have the nutrients that they need in order to grow large and healthy. Make sure you dig in good amounts of compost around the tree, so as it grows it will continue to reach nutrients. If you are planting in a new subdivision, you will want to make sure there is enough topsoil. Often construction in these areas removes most of the topsoil and not much is replaced.
