Tree Nursery and Spade Services
In addition to landscaping, Instant Shade operates a 35 acre tree nursery comprised of a large variety of both deciduous and evergreen trees. Along with competitive prices, occasionally, at different times throughout the year, we will also have sales on certain varieties. If you are interested in purchasing a tree, please contact us for more information on what we have available and our prices.
Shane Christmas is our tree-work manager. Be sure to ask for him so that he can assist you with any questions you may have.
What we can do for you:
- Do you have an area where you want a screen-line of Spruce Trees?
- - No Problem!
- Do you have a favorite tree that you would like to move from your back yard to your front yard?
- - No Problem!
- Is the area where you want a tree inaccessible for a truck?
- - We can also Ball and Burlap (B&B) smaller trees with trunks up to 3 inches in diameter to hand-cart into just such a location.
For tree spade services we have 4 different truck sizes that are capable of moving trees with trunk diameters of up to 10 inches across:
|Spade Size||44 inch||45 inch||60 inch||90 inch|
|Max. Tree Size for each Spade||4 inches||4 inches||7 inches||10 inches|
|* The spade size refers to the maximum diameter of hole that the spade can dig.|
|* The nursery standards for determining the caliper of a tree trunk are to take the measurement 6 inches above the ground for a tree that has a diameter up to 4 inches and 12 inches above the ground for a tree that has a diameter over 4 inches.|
