When in Doubt, Hire a Professional

2.) Guarantee Your Satisfaction – Hiring a professional tree landscaper will provide you the satisfaction of a job well done. Though farmers are known for being a “jack-of-all-trades”, relying on a professional will help you mitigate the risk of spacing your trees incorrectly or planting them at the wrong depth.
3.) Insure Your Investment – Having faith in the tree experts will give you peace of mind the project will be completed with care and according to your timeline. A farmer’s work day is always weather dependent. By allocating the job to a professional, you won’t have to feel rushed during the ideal establishment seasons (spring and fall) when you’re gearing up for planting or harvest.
So how can you connect with a tree professional? Participate in our Green Farmstead Partner Program! We work with a network of nurseries and landscapers from across the state to help you develop an attractive and functional windbreak on your livestock farm.
