Big Trees Inc. Cautions Public To Irrigate Transplanted Trees

Tree Transplant Specialists Speak On Needs For Maintaining Trees Over The Summer

SEATTLE, WA: Big Trees Inc., ( recently issued a public statement on the importance of irrigation in recently transplanted trees, as well as some advice on how to maintain them with a number of options of different irrigation systems. Big Trees Inc. has over 30 years experience in tree transplanting – servicing the greater Puget Sound area.

The statement says “Summer means hotter and longer days and comparatively low rainfall, which is one of the harder things for a tree to survive. A newly transplanted tree even more so (the first year is the hardest.) Moreover, what little rain does fall during the Summer is usually deflected away from the place it most needs to go (the rootball) by the branches and leaves of the tree. So a newly transplanted tree definitely needs a lot of help from the homeowner to help it healthfully survive the season.”

Head of Sales and Marketing at Big Trees Inc., Ross Latham, stated “There are definitely some things a homeowner needs to know if they’re going to transplant a tree into their yard. And one of those things is that a newly transplanted tree needs regular watering, especially during the summer. We aim to provide that information in a useable format so that anyone can have and maintain a thriving, beautiful yard.”
