I am about to plant a number of trees and wanted to see if any of you had alternative methods for planting that may be better than what I normally do. The trees are mostly 6'-7'evergreen, with very large root balls (36" and knee-high). What I normally do is use a Bobcat with an auger and forks, but this job will be hand-dug holes. Given the weight of these trees, is a Bobcat with forks the best way to go, as it makes moving the trees and dropping them in the holes quite simple, or are there alternatives I haven't considered. These could be manhandled, but it just doesn't seem like effective use of labor hours. I have a dozen trees to put in, but other jobs I have done have been 30-50 trees this size. Like I said, I'm looking to see if there are more effective ways of doing this. I have not inquired about renting the hydraulic "forks" like the nursery uses, but I know regular forks make it easy to shift the plant after it is in the hole (if necessary).
