About Us

Ron Robinson started Northern Tree Transplanting, Inc. in March of 1990 with one tree spade truck. Year after year, he continued to build his business into what it is today. Northern Tree Transplanting now has five different sized spades for moving large and small trees to suit your tree moving needs.

Northern Tree Transplanting is a family owned and operated business. Ron’s wife, Sandi, handles the office duties along with their daughter Kim. Kim helps to manage the business as well as the scheduling of the trucks, giving estimates and operating the equipment. Cody, the company’s four legged friend and mascot, joined the team in 2000.  Sadly, he was a stray, but Sandi took him in and he has been with the company ever since. Cody always enjoys meeting and greeting our crew and customers and laying around the shop. However, on April 22, 2011 our beloved Cody passed away. He was a great asset to Northern Tree and will be dearly missed by all.
