How to Plant a Bare-root Tree

The trees and shrubs available through this sale are bare-root, which means they will not come with any soil. Using bare-root stock is a great way to reduce costs and more quickly establish planted trees and shrubs, but it is very important for long-term success that they are properly planted and cared for. Bare-root stock should be planted as soon as possible. Prior to planting, they should be kept cool (but not frozen) and out of the sun, and never let the roots dry out.

The Arbor Day Foundation has guidance on how to plant bare-root trees, as do many other landscape and gardening companies. The Gardener’s Supply Company in particular has a great description of how to plant bare-root trees and shrubs. Like all trees, newly planted trees are susceptible to accidental damage, so avoid using weed whackers and lawn mowers within a few feet of any landscape tree.
