Planting Charges

When you purchase trees or shrubs from Tips Tree Planting, our planting charges are based on the size of the tree. We offer a comprehensive planting service, which includes various steps to ensure your tree’s successful establishment. These steps include calling utility locates, delivery, digging the hole, amending the soil, staking and strapping your tree, and cleaning up the site. For more details on additional charges, refer to the chart below.

Please note that it is essential to remove any pet waste prior to planting and inform our nursery and planting crew about any obstacles that may hinder access to the planting site, such as steps, retaining walls, gates, window wells, or AC units. To facilitate the planting process, mark the planting sites with labeled white flags provided by our nursery.

Prices for difficult site conditions can be negotiated, and all charges are payable at the time of service. If your location is more than 26 miles away from our nursery or outside of El Paso County, please inquire about availability and request a quote, as additional fees may apply due to the distance.

It’s important to note that our planting service does not include tree or shrub removal, unless it is a replacement covered under our guarantee. Moreover, repairs to private lines such as irrigation systems, septic systems, wells, or private electric and gas lines are not included. Charges for these repairs and removals will be discussed and negotiated separately with the planting companies.

To ensure a smooth planting and delivery process, we highly recommend reading the Planting/Delivery Site Access Requirements and the Planting/Delivery Process Flow Chart, which can be found at the bottom of this page.

Special Access Required

Certain trees tagged with “Special Access Required”^^ may require the use of a full-size skid steer due to their size and weight. In addition to the per tree planting cost, there is an additional charge of $500 per day per site for the use of the full-size skid steer. Please ensure that your site has a minimum of 8′ access. It is necessary to have the site pictures approved by our planting crew two weeks prior to your planting date to confirm the adequacy of access.

Please note that the minimum planting charge is $285.
