Tree Planting Services in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN

When is the best time to plant a tree? An old Chinese Proverb says: "The best time to plan a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now."

Planting a tree is an investment that starts now with planting during the growing season — the best time is May-October when there is ample rainfall — and there is time for roots to begin establishment before the dormant season begins. Ample water and mulch will help the tree conserve water and keep the roots cool and moist as a young tree and as it matures into a beautiful landscape asset.

Before you plant a tree, consider the following:

  • Is it compatible with my climate and location?
  • Are there any underground cables or pipes near where I plan to plant?
  • When the tree is grown, will it interfere with power lines or buildings?

Trees can enhance your landscape design and act as a focal point that brings it all together. They are an investment in both your own future and the future of your property. From providing a new wildlife habitat to shading your patio or yard from the hot, mid-summer sun, tree planting now will give you years of enjoyment later.

Just a little thank you note for the wonderful planning for the work done in my yard by you, Kevin and your amazing crew. They were so very respectful of me and my home.

It’s my opinion that these guys are the best. Very professional. They don’t try and upsell you and give good advice. They always arrive on time, do a good job and clean up nicely.

Larry, Eagan

I use S&S Tree every year for elm tree care. They do leaf minor control, soil injection and spray for Japanese beetles. I have an annual contract with them. I am satisfied with the service they provide me.

G. Naber, Roseville

They did a great job. They were very accommodating to our schedule and had no issues with anything like that. We had multiple meetings with the head guy to kind of find out what we were doing. He was really great to work with.

Brad, Chanhassen

I have worked with this company several times for various tree care services. The services are always exceptional. A neighbor and I both had our trees trimmed on the same day and they looked amazing afterward!
