Tree Transplanting Escapades of a (Semi) Retired Arborist

Matt Foti, MCA has long been a proponent of emerging technologies related to planting and moving trees. Throughout his storied career he has diagnosed hundreds of problems resulting from the way plants are grown, installed, and maintained. Recently Matt was asked to consult on a challenging tree moving project in the country of Georgia. The job involved moving 40 enormous trees, many from great distances, throughout this remote corner of the world. Join us as Matt shares the details of how the Georgia project was planned and executed. See amazing images of this jaw-dropping undertaking, as well as other inspired transplanting tales from closer to home. 

Credits Offered: 2 MCA Education CREDITS.


Matt Foti, MCA is the owner of Matthew R. Foti, Landscape Design & Construction Inc. in Lexington, MA. He has been an active member of the Massachusetts tree care industry for 35 years. He is a past president of MAA and a Massachusetts Certified Arborist. Matt is also a featured arborist for WGBH’s This Old House, where he has provided tree advice to millions of viewers.
