First, ensure you select a healthy specimen tree. We had plenty to choose from. 🙂
Second, consider the crown width of the tree – will it be able to fit into a 2.5m wide container? If not, how will you prune it to attain its shape but fit into the container? These are all questions that can only be answered by an expert of tree pruning.
Third, one must rig the tree in a horizontal manner to be able to load them slowly and softly with expert precision into the container without any damage to the branches or stem. This requires expert rigging, crane operation and technical skills.
Watch a 40 sec video of how this operation takes place below.
Lastly… water, water, water – how do you soak these rootballs of the trees to ensure they survive the journey? Well, that’s our trade secret but we can assure you that our trees have not only survived their journey, but flourished in their new homes.
