Tree Planting

Gristwood and Toms supply hardy and healthy specimens to ensure all tree planting projects get the best possible start, and then back it up with a 100% replacement guarantee scheme for the duration of all termed maintenance contracts.

Choosing the right tree is the starting point. You may need to consider a number of factors to ensure you select a suitable tree: soil type, soil moisture content and pH levels as well as proximity to buildings and to underground services.

All tree specimens are different in their needs and require different methods of planting to ensure a healthy life. Whether bare root, air-pot, containerised, root-ball, deep or shallow pit, staking or ground anchoring, we have the teams, the knowledge, the equipment and the experience to provide perfect planting.

As a part of our planting service we will dress the area around the tree base to your requirements. For urban spaces we can offer a range of attractive surface finishes in hardwearing porous resin, which seals in shingle, pebble or stone to provide a tidier, cleaner base.

Planting memorial trees has become increasingly popular as a wonderful reminder of those who have passed. Gristwood & Toms work for Local Authorities planting in parks, cemeteries, pedestrian town centres and in the grounds of schools and hospitals

As a physical form of remembrance and life celebration trees are even more popular than park benches and local authorities and councils are usually happy to discuss the most appropriate locations for planting.

Commemorative trees are regularly planted to mark important occasions. Gristwood & Toms were a key partner in Boris Johnson’s (then London Mayor) one million new trees planting initiative.

For private clients we can provide a wide selection of healthy tree species to choose from, different types of tree stakes and a variety of commemorative plaques.
