What We Do

Environment Design Inc started and runs based on a love for trees and the benefits they can provide almost any landscape. We made it our duty not only to be tree experts, but to build and patent technologies associated with moving large trees safely and securely, whether the distance be a city block, or a few states away. Our tree spade trucks are equipped with enormous tree spades built to hydraulically pull your tree from the ground, even if the trunk is up to 18 inches wide. We provide a service backed by more experience than any other company in the world for moving enormous trees, over 40 years. We can put that experience to work for you, your city, your property, or your public space and shape it with healthy, functional trees appropriate for your part of the USA.

We are based in Houston, Texas, but operate coast to coast and border to border. If you are the in the lower 48 states, EDI can help grow and transplant trees for you.

Large Tree Transplanting

Our tree moving technicians are trained in our patented processes and operate our tree spades that range from 65 inches to 168 inches. Large tree transplanting often requires the relocation of the tree for a period of time.

Tree Farming

Use your own land to grow your own specimen trees. Environmental Design are experts in planning and implementing tree farms to fit your project horizon. We expertly maintain and grow your tree farm to be used in whatever needs you may have. Once grown, we are ready to move and plant them on site.

Arbor Lift

Patented in 2014, ArborLift™ is revolutionizing the giant tree transplanting industry. Utilization of this method often times eliminates the need for large hydraulic cranes and heavy-duty trailers/transporters as part of the tree relocation process which may reduce cost.

Specimen Tree Nursery

For over 40 years, Environmental Design has been widely recognized as the premier tree relocation contractor in the world. Over the past decade, we have enjoyed significant growth in our tree supply and installation business, even during difficult economic times.

Custom Grow

We custom grow trees with asymmetric root systems for eventual installation. We have completed projects for the National 9/11 Memorial, Uptown Houston, and the Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis, MN.
