We can supply semi-mature and large trees rootballed, October – April. The tree is machine lifted from the ground with the soil intact around the root system. On removal from the ground the root-ball is wrapped in biodegradable hessian and non-galvanised wire.
The root-ball should be planted intact with the hessian and wire left on. Once planted the non-galvanised wire soon breaks down and the hessian will rot, allowing the root system to develop. The whole benefit of rootballing is that the root system remaining after lifting will not be disturbed during handling, transportation and planting.
