At the forefront of technology
Advances in machine technologies have opened up a world of affordable options for the secure handling and moving of large, delicate specimens. Whether rootballed or containerised, large trees need the correct support when being lifted. Civic Trees maintain an extensive fleet of vehicles with specialist equipment dedicated to the handling of large trees.
From courtyards to country estates, a single specimen to an entire avenue, trees from 4 metres tall are supplied and guaranteed, having been planted with the precision, care, and attention they deserve.

Domestic private gardens
It is becoming increasingly common that gardeners are realising the potential of large mature trees in a private garden environment. Whether it is to provide shade to a sunny garden or screen an unsightly view, large trees are a quick and effective way of improving your landscape.
A mature oak tree can support over 300 different types of wildlife. Birds often like a safe, raised area such as a tree as it gives them time to survey the surrounding area to ensure it is free from predators. Insects and bird life add diversity to your land as they help to pollinate other plant life.

Consider the benefits and added value of planting large trees in your community. Large tree planting makes a statement about the intentions of the funding body – “We want tree cover in this location and we are prepared to pay for it.” Large tree planting creates instant shaded areas in public open spaces or school grounds and can reduce the need for air conditioners to cool adjacent buildings. Civic Trees has developed planting specifications that can be included in development reports.
