Many areas in Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley have poor soil conditions. Large rocks on the hillsides, acidic peat in old bogs, gravel and sand with the absence of organics. All these can make for special planting. Samples, photos, and knowledge of your planting site is helpful knowledge to us if we are to install your trees properly. If necessary we can come out and inspect your site and maybe provide you with some planting tips.
With so many of our customers asking us to plant their trees, we have made a decision to offer a professional installation service with a seasonal warranty. We plant thousands of trees and are confident of our products and our planting practices. We do offer a planting package if you’re doing your own planting, bagged planting medium, fertilizer, stakes and tie, and a coco disk for mulch, all of which make for a professional looking install.
If you’re thinking about having us install your trees for you, schedule a LOCATE from your local utilities company.
Guarantees & Claims
Stressed or bad material should be reported to us within 48 hrs. Once material is in the hands of the customer it’s their responsibility to care for it and plant it properly. Claims not made within this time frame will not be honored.

- Improper installation
