Capabilities * Planting or transplanting trees up 6” caliper or 20’ evergreens.
Tree Size- Tree/shrub has a trunk between 2.5″ and 6-7″ diameter. Trees under 2.5″ can be transplanted with smaller equipment and/or by hand. Trees over 6″ have decreased survivability, trees over 7″ are usually not worth attempting due to survivability
-Steep slopes. Slopes too steep will not allow spade to be used.
-Overhead obstructions. Truck is 12′-6” without the tree in it., the tree usually adds a few feet when in transport
-Any gates, other trees or vehicle obstructions must allow for the truck to pass a 10′ minimum opening.
-Spade clearance: the Spade has an 18′ spread when open, needs 9′ on either side of center of the tree. There must be at least 6′ clearance from house/buildings or other permanent obstructions from rear of spade
