Last month we highlighted three simple steps for diagnosing your tree problems. While it can be rewarding to complete an on-farm project independently, sometimes taking yourself out of the equation can be the best way to save both time and money.
When it comes to planting trees, the benefits of hiring a professional tree landscaper can often outweigh the costs. Whether you’re planting a small row of trees, or implementing an entire farm windbreak, the project will seem less of a chore if you call on the experts to complete the job.
1.) Save Time – As the saying goes, time is money. Hiring a professional tree landscaper will allow you to check one more item off that long to-do list. You’ve already taken a step in the right direction by determining when and where you want to place your trees. Take a backseat on the tree planting so you can tackle other farm priorities.
2.) Guarantee Your Satisfaction – Hiring a professional tree landscaper will provide you the satisfaction of a job well done. Though farmers are known for being a “jack-of-all-trades”, relying on a professional will help you mitigate the risk of spacing your trees incorrectly or planting them at the wrong depth.
3.) Insure Your Investment - Having faith in the tree experts will give you peace of mind the project will be completed with care and according to your timeline. A farmer’s work day is always weather dependent. By allocating the job to a professional, you won’t have to feel rushed during the ideal establishment seasons (spring and fall) when you’re gearing up for planting or harvest.
