At Legacy Live Oak, we have seen many trees planted by parents and grandparents intended as a legacy for their children and grandchildren. These very trees often self-destruct from defects within 30 years of planting; the well-intended legacy is lost...forever. It is indeed a needless heartbreak.
Too often the lifespan of the urban tree is diminished as defects are allowed to develop. Over time, these unnoticed defects increase risk of failure, threatening life and property. Unlike structural pruning in young specimens, delayed pruning of medium to large trees often results in large, permanently disfiguring wounds. The ensuing decay decreases the safety, lifespan and beauty of the tree.
Southern Live Oaks, for example, can live over 1500 years, yet many are doomed to future failure from defects developing within the first 20 years.
Planning: Location and space considerations, conditioning the site for soil and topographical factors.
Selection: Each tree candidate is scrutinized by Legacy Live Oak's strict standards. Hand‐selected by I.S.A. Certified Arborists.
Planting: Unique Mar‐Star* planting process ensures superior root pattern growth, resulting in a strong support base.
Training: Legacy Live Oak's structural pruning process eliminates many of the stressors placed on the urban tree, resulting in a healthier, stunning showpiece with strength, character and beauty.
Aftercare: Legacy Live Oak periodically prunes, monitors, field tests and prepares progress updates from planting to full maturity.
