Constructing a commercial building is a considerable endeavor—all the more so if the plot in question contains healthy trees. If you have already decided to save the trees on your property, you should know how to implement tree protection for construction.

Is It Worth Preserving Trees During Commercial Construction?
This depends on several factors, including the cost of removal, possible replanting, and yes, whether the trees will fit in the context of the final construction design.
We take into account the budget and planned design for your construction project. However, you should also remember that keeping mature trees has value beyond economic benefits. Mature trees help offset carbon emissions by absorbing carbon dioxide and cleaning the air around your property.
What’s more, established tree roots break up compact soil, allowing for better draining during storms.
Understand Construction Damages
Once you decide to relocate and replant the trees around your property, you need to account for construction damages to the plant that can occur. During removal, the tree trunk will become damaged when the branches and the bark are stripped away.
It is also possible that a portion of the tree roots will be removed to make relocation easier. Soil compaction is also a concern since we will be using heavy machinery and tools during the removal and replanting process.
Should you choose to save the mature trees on your property, we will create a tree protection plan to guide you through the entire process. We will be happy to answer any questions you have.
How to Prepare the Site
The first step is determining which trees to protect and which ones will be removed. Valuable trees will be marked with tree protection zones (TPZs) to mitigate as much damage as possible during the construction process.
Our team will also construct a base map to include essential structures around the construction area, including any drainage lines, utility connections, and soil slopes affecting the removal process.
Protecting the Tree
Once construction activity is underway, our team will be dedicated to optimizing the health and safety of all identified valuable trees. We will provide essential tree care services, such as water and fertilization. We will also remove any organic debris, such as stripped branches, bark, and cut roots.
Our team of trained arborists will ensure that the tree’s environment is kept as stable as possible to promote optimal tree health.
We will keep an eye on the soil structure and grade, water level, drainage capacity, and aeration to keep them as normal as possible.
Tree Removal, the Right Way
Tree removal and relocation, when done correctly, can be advantageous. What’s more, it can be done with minimal cost and effort on your part with the proper planning. Keeping mature and valuable trees on your property not only increases the property’s commercial value but also provides ecological and aesthetic benefits.
