Move multiple trees per trip, resulting in fewer miles traveled and less fuel consumption. Keep receiving hole dirt-plugs containerized for less shovel work. A BIG JOHN pod trailer or free standing tree pod can help increase your efficiency by saving time and money.
Our pod sizes come in 45, 55, 65, 80, 90, & 100 and have various configurations from multiple pods on a trailer or a free standing tree pod.
We offer several customization options for our units and various pod sizes and configurations.
Our history with spades runs deep with the original idea for a tree spade from John May. He invented and patented a tree spade with curvilinear towers and four spoon shaped blades that lead to the first BIG JOHN models. Today, we constantly improve on that original design with innovative changes directly influenced by the needs of our customers. We designed our first spade from start to finish—and do the same today.
Whether you’re just getting started with moving trees with a tree spade or expanding your tree spade lineup, our spades offer a range of optional features that give you a robust package you need at the right price. Our spades are often more cost efficient than the competition because you can get the features you need, not what you don’t.

I would definitely recommend the Big John tree spades to anyone looking for a reliable, efficient and robust digging machine. The style and design of the Big John 90D proved to be way better and allowed for more down pressure in much harder ground than the other manufacturers’ spade.
Friendly service, straight to the point type. Check’m’out!
Amazing and reliable machines.
Big John has been the back bone of our company for 30 years now. They are high in quality, durability, dependability, and affordability. Great response from parts and service if needed. Still moving trees in north east Florida.
Quality built Tree Spades made by a American company with a proven track record since the 1970’s.
After owning 3 different manufacturers of Tree Spades I realized I needed to use the Big John brand so I could be more efficient No other manufacture offers the tree pod capability of taking multiple trees to the job site with 1 trip. Fuel is expensive and time isn’t cheap!
Fantastic company with people who care about your business and their products are first class with the service to back them up.
