Procurement

"Minimizing Your Footprint, Enhancing Your Performance"

 
The quality of trees for any planting is of paramount importance. Even the best designs and most carefully planned plantings can fail if the trees are of poor stock. That’s why we offer tree procurement services for all your planting needs. Our arborists have extensive nursery contacts and experience in selecting the finest trees, so you’ll always get the best available at an affordable price. Whether you’re looking for a single specimen tree, or hundreds of trees for a large planting, let us handle the procurement. We’ll track down the best trees from the best growers and make sure you pay prices direct from the nursery, often at a discounted price.

Healthy trees with good form and vigorous growth are important for a variety of reasons. They will be more resistant to disease and damage, they will live longer, they will reach their full growth potential, and require less maintenance. Healthy, strong trees are also more appealing to the eye.

Quality trees should have all of the following characteristics : They will be free from disease and pests, show little to no signs of damage, have been grown and pruned using proper techniques, have appropriate root and branching structure for their species, display vigorous growth of shoots and leaves, and be of the appropriate size for their intended use.

For those who are new to procurement, it might seem that there isn’t much difference between trees, or between nurseries. Though it may seem this way, nothing could be further from the truth. Even the best nurseries with reputable staff will have trees that are unfit for planting, and only through experience and training can one spot the difference between an acceptable specimen, and one that must be passed over.

With our extensive experience in planting comes extensive knowledge and experience in procurement. Our staff has contacts with nurseries throughout New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and New York (including all of Long Island). No species is too rare, no amount of trees too large for us to find you the perfect specimen at an unbeatable price.
