Tree Moving

Planting, Transplanting, and Moving Trees in Kansas City

Trees are an essential part of any residential property and are therefore worthy of a modest investment to preserve for years to come. Rather than simply cutting down a tree that has outgrown its space, you should consider relocating it to a more ideal location on your residential property.  Kansas City homeowners hire professional arborists to plant, transplant, or move trees for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Planting a Juvenile Tree: An arborist can help select the ideal tree species based on a homeowner’s desires and Kansas City’s ecosystem. He or she can then plant the juvenile tree in the perfect location, where it will receive exactly the amount of sun, shade, water, nutrients, and space it needs to thrive for years.
  • Planting a New Mature Tree: Rather than waiting years for a sapling to reach its fullest potential, you may want to instead plant a fully mature tree on your residential property. A professional arborist can help select the ideal tree species and oversee a work crew to safely plant the mature tree on your property in the perfect location.
  • Moving a Mature Tree from One Location to Another: Sometimes a tree on your residential property can outgrow its location. Maybe it has become hazardous by encroaching on your home or utility lines. Maybe it was planted in a place that does not have enough sun or space. Or perhaps the tree has sentimental value and you want to take it with you during a move. Regardless of your motivation, a professional arborist and work crew can perform the delicate procedure of digging up your tree (regardless of its size!) and replanting it elsewhere.

Kansas City’s Most Reliable Residential Tree Movers

Due to the incredible size and weight of fully mature trees, they can be incredibly dangerous to move! Digging up and replanting can also be incredibly stressful to a tree and can cause permanent damage to its roots, trunk, and canopy if not properly handled. It takes heavy duty equipment and a crew of seasoned arborists to get the job done right. Fortunately, SAFETY Tree Service fits the bill! SAFETY has successfully transplanted mature trees on residential properties throughout Kansas City. Our certified arborists have been trained in proper tree handling and how to safely operate heavy tree-moving machinery.

What People Are Saying

  • Safety Tree Service did a great job trimming several elm and ash trees for me, as well as a few pin oaks. The pin oaks had various dead limbs that needed to be removed and other limbs that needed to be thinned. Ty did an excellent job removing the dead wood and trimming the trees, which helped reduce risk of damage from limbs falling and greatly improved the health and overall appearance of the trees. With the recent bad weather I’m glad I hired Ty as I’m confident one of the limbs would have come down on a power line. I received bids from multiple tree trimmers and Ty’s bid was very competitive and he was able to provide proof of insurance. Some of the other bidders offered lower prices but were not insured! I do recommend Ty to others as he did a great job for me.

  • We needed a to have a couple of large trees removed from our yard. Safety Tree Service did a great job. They raked and collected everything and left us with a totally clean backyard. If we ever need any tree services in the future I will definitely contact you again.

  • We use Ty and his staff at Safety Tree exclusively for all of our tree work referrals. Our company conducts grounds maintenance on a wide variety of residential and commercial properties. We have referred our customers to Ty because they continually tell me how exceptional their overall experience was with Safety Tree. I have heard everything from “experts”, to “very professional”, to “very skilled”, to “clean” and “fair” used to describe their encounters. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Safety Tree to any private or public entity or for any project regardless of scope or size.
