Tree moving under project management of Hugo Loudon

Why do we move trees?

For hundreds of years, society has recognised the need to relocate valuable trees in order to harmonise developments and landscapes with human needs. Trees located in inappropriate positions can be moved, releasing them from life-threatening, detrimental suppression and further provide physiological development benefits. This provides opportunities for specimen planting, parkland and new development screening.

Relocation is ecologically sustainable resulting in new landscape tree portfolios. We have saved clients 60-80% on buying in semi-mature specimens on past projects. Tree moving projects require careful planning, recognising each individual species, including its constraints and future requirements. This is undertaken by principle Arboriculturist, Hugo Loudon, who has over 20 years experience.

Equipment and Machinery

Hugo and his team also use the tree spades for his Arboretum Designs and Construction, bringing a creative element to the finished project.

The Optimal 880 moves trees with a 35" diameter rootball.

The Optimal 1100 moves trees with a 46" diameter rootball.

Our Vermeer TS50 moves trees with a 50" diameter rootball.

Our Vermeer TS84T will move a massive 84" diameter rootball; one of the largest in UK!

For larger, oversized trees, specialised hand root balling techniques are available, making trees weighing 20 tonnes or more viable for relocation, with unique project planning.

Our Mantra

Our conscious responsibility towards one of the world's most valuable natural resources ensures thorough, professional, devoted commitment, helping tree owners to understand the silent physiological needs of trees. Harmonising the treescape with the built-up urban environment requires a dedication above and before financial considerations.
