PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  Please give us a short description of your project (you will be adding details in the following questions).  If you have more than one area please label them Area #1, Area #2, etc.

PLANTING SITE INFORMATION

1.  Sunlight:  What is the sunlight light like where you want to plant the trees?   Full Sun, Partial Sun, shade?  Will all the trees receive the same amount of sunlight or are there differences?   If you have more than one planting area please answer these questions using "Area #1", "Area #2", etc.

        

 

2.  Soil:  As to the soil where the trees will be planted, do you know if it is good or poor quality, sandy, clay, or compacted?   Does it drain well, or are there issues with standing water? 

  

3.  Access:  What is the access to the planting area like?  When we park our trucks, how far do we need to go to get to the planting area?  Are there any stairs, narrow gates, rockeries, etc.?  If you have a gate, please let us know the width of the opening so we can tell if our equipment will fit through (this measurement can be supplied later if you wish). 

 

4.  Utilities:  Are there any underground utilities (gas, water, cable, etc.) in the area where we will be planting?   Underground utilities are usually not a problem but the question does need to be asked.   If there are utilities in the area or you aren't sure, we can call the free "Call Before You Dig" service to come out and mark where any utilities are.  

     Are there any overhead wires in the area?

     Finally, are there any sprinkler systems,  underground dog fences, landscape lighting, low overhead wires, or septic systems in the area?

 

 

5.  What is in the planting area now?  Grass or other trees?  Blackberries, stumps or other obstructions?  Anything you'd like us to remove?

6.  Does your project involve any of the following:

            High Wind Area:  

            Steep Slopes:      

            Deer or Elk are plentiful in the area:   

            Sod needs to be removed:    

            Grass or pavement needs to be protected (we can usually do this by putting down plywood and/or bringing the right equipment; there may be an extra labor  charge):

                                                

            Are there any governmental or private restrictions on planting (knowing this is the responsibility of the Homeowner), but we can possibly help you work through any "issues" by providing information:

                                               

                                               

PROJECT INFORMATION

 

Do you know exactly the trees, sizes and quantities that you want?  If so, please list them here and then you are finished with the worksheet and please click "Submit" below.  If you don't know such things exactly, please continue with the questions.

 

To continue, please answer the following questions, which begin with the Privacy Tree part of your project and then cover the Ornamental Trees. 

PRIVACY TREE PROJECT

1.  What are you trying to screen off?  A later question asks you to send us a photo or two.

 

2.  What is the distance you want to cover with trees (in feet)?  This can be supplied later if you wish.

 

3.  How tall do the trees need to be to block off what you want to block?  The Privacy Tree Comparison Chart shows the mature height of all the privacy trees.  Note that what we're talking about here is not the height of the trees when you buy them, but what height they will grow to.

 

 

4.  How much of your yard can you give up for the screen?  This is a big issue.  If you have a large yard, any of our trees will work for you.  But if you have either a smaller yard or don’t want to give up a lot of your yard to privacy trees, then you need to look at this carefully.  The Emerald Green Arborvitae are popular because they don’t grow more than 3-4’ wide, and don’t require any pruning.  Schipka Laurel is the next widest, and then the big evergreen trees--Leyland Cypress, Green Giants, Excelsa Cedar, Western Red Cedar, and English Laurel are much wider (see the Privacy Tree Comparison Chart).  These trees can be pruned to stay in a smaller space, but pruning is tough and/or expensive work.

 

5.  Are you willing to prune your trees, or do you want “low maintenance”?  See previous question.

 

6.  After answering the above questions, do you know what tree(s) you'd like to consider for the project, or would you like assistance with that?  To research this further, please see the Privacy Tree Comparison Chart which shows mature heights and widths, planting condition requirements, and links over to our webpage for each tree.

 

7.  How “full” do you want your privacy screen to be immediately?   Most of our “Instant Privacy” Trees come in more than one size.  You also have choices as to how you want to space the trees when you plant them—put them close together to obtain maximum screening now, or space them wider to save on the budget and wait for them to grow together.  Note that we can easily provide you with Price Quotes for several sizes of trees.

 

8.  Would you like us to deliver and plant the trees?  You are welcome to simply pick-up the trees from us and we can also do "Delivery Only", but most people have us deliver and plant them.   In the larger sizes these are big, heavy, bulky trees much too big for a pick-up truck (we use equipment to move them).  When we "deliver & plant" we include a watering system, staking if necessary and a one-year warranty.

 

 

 

9.  What is your project budget (optional)?  Note that we set up our Price Quotes on a spreadsheet so it is very easy to change sizes, spacing, etc. and show you several budget alternatives.

 

10. Are you willing to water your trees?

           (X)  YES

           (   )  No

          Your answer has to be “Yes”; otherwise, please build a wooden fence.  There is a common misconception that because the Northwest is so wet, trees will be fine without watering.  WRONG.   Whatever time of year they are planted, newly planted trees need to be watered their first spring/summer--often every day in the hot weather.    So you need to have access to a water source such as an outside faucet.   When we plant the trees we provide, for no additional charge, a custom-cut above-ground watering system for your trees.  You should use this for the first spring/summer for sure, and leave it in for the hottest days of the next spring/summer.   You might also consider purchasing a water timer.  There is more information about watering in the "Care of Your Trees" section of our website.

 

11.  Are you able to send us photos?:  One weakness of this online questionnaire is that you are not able to attach photos.  Please let us know if you have sent photos to us at  info@nurserytrees.com

                               Yes, I will send photos (or have sent them)

                       No.

 

12.  Please add any other information or comments you wish:

 

ORNAMENTAL TREE PROJECT

1.  We'd be happy to assist you in selecting a tree(s).  Please give us a basic idea of what type of ornamental tree you are looking for, or a list of trees you'd like to consider.  We can discuss this on the phone or in person if you aren't sure.  To research our trees further, please see our "Ornamental Tree landing page" which shows a photo and basic information about each of the trees we offer, and then from there you can click to more information on each tree (each tree has its own webpage that includes information such as mature height and width, growing condition requirements, sizes & prices, etc.  (So you don't have to re-do this Project Worksheet we suggest you open a new browser to NurseryTrees.com to look at that page--there's a link at the top of any of our webpages).

 

2.  How tall and wide do you wish the tree to be when it is fully grown?  Note that what we're talking about here is not the height of the trees when you buy them, but what height they will grow to.

 

 

3.  How big do you want your tree(s) to be when we plant them?  Most of our trees come in more than one size.  This often comes down to tree size vs. budget, and it is easy to give you Price Quotes for more than one size.

 

4.  Would you like us to deliver and plant the trees?  You are welcome to simply pick-up the trees from us and we can also do "Delivery Only", but most people have us deliver and plant them.   In the larger sizes these are big, heavy, bulky trees much to big for a pick-up truck (we use equipment to move them).  When we "deliver & plant" we include a watering system, staking if necessary and a one-year warranty.

6.  Are you willing to water your trees?

           (X)  YES

           (   )  No

          Your answer has to be “Yes”; otherwise, please build a wooden fence.  There is a common misconception that because the Northwest is so wet, trees will be fine without watering.  WRONG.   Whatever time of year they are planted, newly planted trees need water their first spring/summer, sometimes every day.    So you need to have access to a water source such as an outside faucet.   When we plant the trees we provide, for no additional charge, either a custom-cut above-ground watering system for your trees.  You should use this for the first spring/summer for sure, and leave it in for the hottest days of the next spring/summer.   You might also consider purchasing a water timer.  There is more information in the "Care of Your Trees' section of our website..
