Choosing trees for your site - Take into consideration:
Type of soil - wet, moist, dry, sandy, sandy-loam, clay.
Sun requirements - does your site provide full sun, partial sun, shade?
Our price lists on pages 4-10 list planting requirements to help you make the correct choice.
Preparing the planting site - Survival rates for containerized tree seedlings are good on all sites including rough sites. However, weed control can help them off to a good start. This can be accomplished by herbicides and/or mowing.
Planting your Containerized Tree Seedlings - The seedlings root plug should be placed 1/4 to 1/2 inch below the ground surface, and the native soil firmed over the root plug. The soil around the plug should be firmed up, but be careful not to step on the seedling! Containerized seedlings may be planted with all types of planting tools and equipment including mechanical tree planters.
