Golf Courses / Landscape Architects / Hand Digging & Tree Spade Moving




Golf course developers order their trees to be grown by Shady Tree Farms when golf course planning begins. When the new course is ready for landscape, the trees are large, mature and healthy.

Known as Contract-Grow, this is an effective and cost-efficient way for any large project where 2-3 years of growth time is available before landscaping is required. The cost for Contract grown trees is typically 40% less than selecting mature trees from inventory.

Shady Tree Farms can also install our trees at your site at a typical savings for 20%. Golf Course tree installation offers:

  • Specimen tree installation (24" to 156" box)
  • Project and subcontract management
  • Reforestation
  • Accurate and dependable estimating and preconstruction services
