A new tree is a great addition to your property. They can add many benefits such as more oxygen for improved air quality, wind resistance, and shade. New trees can also greatly benefit the aesthetic of your property and increase its value. However, planting trees is not as easy as it looks. Before you plant a tree, you need to take into consideration the climate, the condition of the soil, and if there is enough room for the tree to grow as it develops.

If you are planning to plant a new tree, make sure you speak with the professional arborists at Hendricken Tree Care for our tree planting services in Glencoe, IL, and the surrounding areas. We can help choose and plant a tree that will thrive on your landscape. If there is a tree already on your property that was planted in a bad spot, we can uproot and transplant the tree to a better location.

Why Plant a Tree?

Many people decide to plant trees in their yard to enhance their landscape. Planting new trees can also benefit your property in several other ways. They can help increase shade which can decrease the cooling costs in the summer, produce more oxygen to improve air quality, and help reduce flood risks by providing coverage from the rain. Planting a new tree can also be done as a family activity as you can watch it grow together over the years.

Tree Planting


The process of planting a tree is not as easy as it looks. When picking a tree, you must think about which type of tree will do best for your property. Hendricken Tree Care can help by assessing the condition of the soil in your yard, and help you pick the tree that fits that soil and the conditions needed for it to grow properly. We will also help pick a tree that is resistant to the types of insects and diseases it might encounter in your yard. Once the tree is chosen, we will find the best spot to make sure it gets the nutrients and sunlight it needs and has enough space to grow. Picking the right spot for your tree to grow is very important, otherwise you may eventually need to remove or transplant the tree.

Tree Transplanting

If you have a tree at your property that was planted in an area where it does not seem to be getting enough sun, nutrients, or space to grow, it is best to get it uprooted and moved to a better spot. Hendricken Tree Care offers transplanting services to move trees to an area that may be better for their growth. Our arborists can make sure to get your trees moved carefully and replant them in a better area where they will grow well.

”I have a tree in the yard of a home that I own and rent that I thought needed to be removed. The branches were hanging over the neighbor’s property and I did not want my tree to cause any damage. One tree removal professional was ready to remove the tree, but I called Hendricksen Tree Care for a second opinion. Bob Hendricksen came to my property and told me it is best to not remove the tree. He said that he could provide treatment for the tree that will help it live strong for another 10 years. He also mentioned that removing the tree could lead to issues with water pooling in the yard. Instead of removing the tree, Hendricksen Tree Care provided treatment to help it stay strong and healthy.
I want to thank Bob Hendricksen for providing treatment to save the tree, even though the treatment service cost less than removing it. His passion for providing excellent tree care saved my tree!”
