Planting Service

A complete tree planting service is available for orders of 400 trees or more.
Cost:  .40 cents/tree planted

Service includes a tree crew with all necessary equipment. When arrangements are made for the NRD to plant the trees, the tree planting crew will deliver them to the landowner at planting time.

SITE PREPARATION
The area to be planted should be prepared as if a garden or field crop were being planted. Plowing and then disking or roto-tilling the ground will establish an excellent seedbed. Survival of your trees greatly depends on excellent ground preparation. Autumn is the best time to begin preparing the soil for tree planting because the winter weather allows the soil to mellow.

 

Spacing Between Rows

              • Cedar trees: 10-14′
              • Pine trees: 10-18′
              • Deciduous: 12-16′ apart
              • Shrubs: 4′ apart

Weed Barrier

Brochure 

Weed Barrier Program is used as long-lasting protection against weeds for seedling trees without constant effort and damage to the seedlings or the environment.

Weed barrier is a black polypropylene fabric with the appearance of tightly-woven burlap. Moisture is able to penetrate the weed barrier fabric, but it prevents moisture loss from the soil beneath the fabric. Once the material is in place, post-planting maintenance is greatly reduced and the material has a minimum service life of five years guaranteed.

Costs

  • Fabric: 6’ wide .50 cents/lineal foot + tax
  • Sheets of Fabric: 4’x4’ sheets $1.25 /sheet
  • Staples: 10”x 2”x 8” gauge .15 cents each Payment for fabric & staples is required when an order is placed.
  • Fabric & Installation: A minimum of 1,000 linear feet will be installed at a job site. Customers are billed for actual feet after the job is completed. .80 cents per linear feet + tax. 50% payment (of estimated cost) & is required when an order is placed.
