Trees offers services to provide for your entire needs. Our staff can
help in the drawing stages and work with the Landscape Architect to
determine size and availability of different varieties, help locate
alternatives for hard to find trees, as well as keeping you informed
of growth habits and benefits of new tree introductions. Our Early Order
Program is designed to enable us to not only allow you first pick of
trees as they become available but also insures the availability at
the time of installation. By securing the trees early in the project
we can ship to our Celina farm to maintain and ship to the jobsite as
needed. This will enable you to have stable cured specimen B&B trees
to install through out the year. In addition to being able to provide
you with the best possible trees we have equipment, trucks and staff
to offer complete Plant and Guarantee services we well as delivery services.
With all the construction and demolition going on tree preservation
has become a hot topic with most cities in the area. Saving existing
trees not only adds an established look to the new landscape but in
most cases the mature trees count towards extra credit when looking
at mitigation value.
When it comes to tree relocation
LMI Trees is your full service provider. We can handle the job from
start to finish. First step includes hand digging all the trees. Next
we load and move trees to new location. The new location can be a holding
area to keep trees safe from harm during construction or straight to
the new planting hole.

AND CONDITIONS OF PLANT AND GUARANTEE:
LMI Trees offers plant
& guarantee services for a flat rate within the metroplex area. Any
jobs beyond a 50 mi. radius will be subject to additional freight charges
and possibly other travel expenses depending upon mileage. Under this
flat rate the contractor assumes responsibility for all site preparation
including but not limited to:
• Contractor must mark all tree locations.
• Contractor must remove fencing or other barriers.
• Contractor must locate all utility* and cable lines and relocate
irrigation lines in planting area before arrival of planting crew. *Effective
October 1, 1998 state law requires that Dig Tess, 1-800-344-8377 be contacted
to locate utility lines before excavating. This is a free service and
LMI will not begin planting at any site until this has been done. LMI
will not be held responsible for any utility and/or irrigation lines/heads
not covered under the Dig Tess locate that have not been located/moved.
Contractor agrees that LMI may cut irrigation lines as necessary or Contractor
will have an Irrigation Contractor on site when digging begins.
• Contractor must request a pre-site inspection if site has difficult
access or obstacles that may require additional time or equipment such
as but not limited to rock or other underground obstacles, retaining walls
or pools. LMI’s planting quote assumes there is direct access to
the planting site. Sites with limited access and/or other obstructions
are subject to additional charges for extra labor hours and the use of
additional equipment. Site/tree may require the use of a crane service
and is not included in the standard P&G quote. Contractor may work
directly with the crane company or LMI will coordinate inspections, permits,
barricades, installation schedule, etc., with crane operator at invoice
plus 20% payable to LMI Trees. LMI assumes no liability for crane operations.
It is contractor’s responsibility to inform client of potential
liability and determine whether contractor or client assumes liability.
Due to the size and weight of our trees and the equipment necessary to
plant, LMI cannot guarantee there will be no damage to sidewalks or driveway.
However our crew will take every precaution to prevent any breakage. In
the event of damage the Contractor or owner assumes full responsibility
for all repairs.
• Contractor/Owner assumes responsibility for providing sufficient/proper
water to each tree. Since weather conditions can be extreme during the
course of the year in the metroplex area a standard watering program will
not be provided by LMI Trees.
responsibility for digging the planting holes, setting the tree, backfilling
the planting hole and watering tree in. It is our policy to stake all
trees 4” and under and to install inspection tubes on al trees 6”
and over. Cost of tree staking kits and inspection tubes are included
in quote. All trees installed by LMI are guaranteed for a period of (1)
year and in good health and free of pests at time of installation. LMI
Trees strongly discourages the planting of annuals, perennials, shrubs,
and other such ornamentals in or around the tree ring for a period of
(1) year form installation. Watering requirements for this type of plant
material is often well above the need of the tree and can cause decline
and even loss of the tree. LMI Trees cannot be held liable for losses
de to drought, frost, fire, flood, tornado, other severe weather conditions
(e.g. extreme winter weather), vandalism, theft, animals, traffic, construction,
lack of or excess moisture, or other factors beyond control of warrantor.
To help insure the health and life of the tree LMI will do routine site/maintenance
inspections and forward the results to both the Contractor and the Property
