Spraying and Mowing
Post plant spraying with a herbicide is one technique for the control of unwanted vegetation, that competes for water and nutrients with new tree seedlings.
Lands and Forests and our staff are fully insured and Licensed.
Mowing between the rows of trees is an alternative used by many landowners with new trees.
There are many considerations to look at when selecting a tree species to plant. Lands & Forest Consulting will take many of the following variables into account when helping you select a species.
Type of soil
Potential for good growth rates
Potential for mature trees to set seed
Determine what local pests and/or diseases might hinder the success of the plantation
Potential for survival and establishment
Whatever the goals and objectives you have for your land, the species to grow should be selected carefully.
Lands and Forests Consulting will develop a detailed site plan based on results from our initial site visit. Included in the plan is the landowner objectives, trees to be planted, size of area to be planted, soil study and any other details to be included.
