  Providing Innovative Solutions to the Growing, Planting, and Transplanting of Large Trees. 

     While tree spades have long been a part of the process of digging, and relocating trees, GRO was one of the first companies to build a business around tree spades.  We currently operate a fleet of 13 spades, 7 of them truck-mounted and 6 tractor-mounted, and we are more convinced today than ever that mechanical transplanting is the superior method for handling plants.

    Speed, cost-saving and the ability to move trees "out-of-season" are among the many reasons that we have embraced tree-spades as the superior method of transplanting trees.  With our fleet of machinery, which includes 2 100" diameter spades, we are able to process even the largest projects within very narrow time constraints.

Watch the 'BIG' Tree planting video below to see the work we have done at Union Station in Chicago and when we transplanted the State Champion Paperbark Maple on the campus of the University of Illinois. 


 Also known as "hand-digging," conventional transplanting involves the excavation and forming of a root-ball that is, at least in part, done by hand.  We employ this method when access makes the use of a three spade impractical, or when we are asked to relocate a three that is too large for our largest tree spade.  Our men are expert in the "art" of drum-lacing a root ball, producing a package that is good looking as well as durable.
