At our production nursery in Beaumont we grow caliper and potted trees anticipating their new homes somewhere in western Canada. This is a picture of Northern Treasure Ash growing in the field.
We harvest most of our trees in the spring after the ground has thawed but before the leaves emerge. Some trees allow us to have a second digging season in the fall. When digging (harvesting) a caliper trees, we use a tree spade mounted on the front of a Bobcat skid-steer loader. The tree is lifted out of the ground, then the root ball is placed in a wire basket with a burlap liner. We then staple the burlap liner and use a heavy strapping material to tie the wire to hold the root ball together.
After the trees have been dug, they are moved into a holding yard where they can be watered and maintained. Mode of transportation to their new home can be a half ton truck, or an open trailer and other times a large flat deck semi trailer. Cheyenne can also deliver to your location. We also have contractors available who can do tree and shrub installation for you.
Once planted, caliper trees take a few seasons to get comfortable in their new home, but then after proper care, begin to grow at their regular rate. Be sure to check out our planting guide and planting instructions to ensure that your tree becomes established and continues to grow and provide beauty and shelter in your yard for many years to come.
Our garden center staff would be pleased to assist you in choosing the perfect tree, advise you on planting procedures and to answer any questions you may have.
