Tree planting is done to enhance the greenery and density of a specific lot. Adding and planting trees can also be a great way to improve the beauty of a landscape by adding texture and dimension through trees, while also increasing shading, air quality, and overall sustainability. We often have businesses requesting our tree planting services to help their property look more appealing to potential clients, while homeowners are interested in adding more trees to their landscape to reduce their energy bills and prevent erosion in their lawns.
Choosing Your Trees
When it comes to choosing your trees, it’s important to understand your budget and which trees would be most suitable for your location and the relevant weather. We recommend considering trees native to Louisiana because they have a better chance of climatizing to the environment and surviving through the seasons. Our recommendations for local and native trees include Sycamores, Southern Magnolias, Red Oaks, Blue Beeches, Baldcypresses, and many more. If you’re unsure which tree would be most suitable or you, or if you’d like to mix and match a few trees for your landscape, we’ll be able to advise you on the best picks and what kind of maintenance each tree species requires.
Preparing your soil and land for tree planting is important to ensure that your trees have a higher rate of survival and can easily assimilate into the soil and climate. Without proper preparation, you might find your trees succumbing to diseases early on and these diseases can spread to other plants and greenery, as well as harbor undesirable pests. Preparing the soil and the land for a new tree plant will provide greater results for longer-lasting tree growth and tree health.
We take our job of planting trees very seriously because we are dedicated to improving tree health and sustainability throughout the Lafayette community. We take extra precautions when planting new trees so that they have a higher rate of survival when assimilating into the soil and later prospering into a full and healthy tree. Not only do we want to make the community healthier and more sustainable with trees, but we also work with homeowners and commercial property owners to enhance their individual spaces as well. Planting trees is a great way to increase shading in particular areas, improving the health of surrounding greenery and soil, as well as preventing erosion during rainfall.
When it comes to planting trees, our approach is with long-lasting sustainability in mind. We only want to plant trees that we know will have a higher rate of survival with the local environment in the climate. We also want to ensure the trees are being planted on plots of land where they can easily be managed and cared for. If you are looking for trees with little maintenance, we'll suggest the right species of trees that fit your lifestyle and level of upkeep, as some require more attention than others during seasonal changes, trimming, and general cleaning.
