My experience with Re-Tree has been exceptional. To be able to repurpose a beautiful tree has many advantages; financial, personal and ecological. To save mature trees is so rewarding, I invested in the company.
The installation was seamless the impact was priceless. Retree in coordination with our team at Environmental Artists was able to make the seemingly impossible- possible.
We’d like to think of it as a no-brainer! Unfortunately, not all trees and shrubs that are submitted will qualify. We are currently only seeking healthy, large specimen trees that are easily accessible, structurally sound, have a trunk diameter between 3-14”, and 85% or greater tree health. Unique styling is a bonus.
The buyer is responsible for paying for the list price of the tree as well as the services to excavate, transport, and install the tree.
When relocating a tree, there will be a fee for the Transplanting services as well as a transaction/administration fee based on the appraised value of the tree. Transaction fees range from 20-30% depending on appraised value.
The process varies depending on the size of the tree, site conditions, and distance between sites. For example, in 2020 we transplanted a 16’ Japanese Maple within a 10 mile radius and it took approximately 10 hours.
You can expect a survival rate of 95% or greater when a proper aftercare program is in place. Distance does not play a role in survivability when all precautions are taken to ensure bare roots stay moist in transit.
Yes, however if the ground is frozen, the removal and relocation process will be delayed until the ground has thawed.
We happily support buying across the US, however, at present time, selling/relocating is only available within Michigan.
