2020 TREE SALE has begun
Our Tree Seedling program is offered annually. Orders are taken, beginning in Fall and continuing throughout Winter or until sold out.
Once our annual sales have begun you may stop by our office to place an order or print an order form and mail along with payment. (Choose pdf or excel). You will be notified when trees arrive in early Spring.
If you have never taken advantage of our tree seedling program you may not be aware how easy the planting process can be. Many customers don’t realize that one pack of 25 tree seedlings can be held in your hand, so transportation from our office to home is very easy. Once you get your trees home they should be planted right away.
There are a couple of different methods to planting your seedlings; the hole method and the slit method. The hole method may be considered the better way to plant your trees because you get the roots spread throughout the soil which will help the tree take in nutrients and moisture better, however this method takes a lot longer.
The slit method is definitely the easiest way to get your seedlings in the ground. To use this method you will need a planting bar, shovel, spade or spud bar to create a slit in the ground. Make sure that the slit is deep enough to receive all the roots. If you have 12 inches of roots then you will need a 12 inch slit in the ground. You may need to trim the seedlings taproot to a length of 8-12 inches. Once the seedling is placed in the slit, you will need to press the soil up against the roots and use your heel to press the ground closed around the seedling. We have printed instruction sheets in our office that will assist you in this very easy process.
