What does bare
root trees are trees that are dug and stored without any soil around their
roots. Trees can be bought "bare root," and then planted directly into the
ground. While you’re likely familiar with potted plants, which are commonly seen
at garden centers, bare-root trees and shrubs are becoming more available. You
may have looked at those soil-free twigs with dried up roots and wondered, “How
could this grow?” But once you know the advantages
of bare-root trees and their easy care, you’ll realize you’ve opened up
a whole new world of plant possibilities. We believe bare-root trees and
shrubs are the wave of the future – especially when considering rising fuel
costs. For newly developed neighborhoods, yards and cities, bare root is an
economical way to grow more trees, saving up to 50% on plant costs. With their
air filtering effects, water and energy conservation capabilities, trees are
truly the power houses of being green.
What are the
advantages of planting bare root trees?
You can see the root system. When it comes to B&B and containerized trees,
the roots are hidden below the soil, so you can’t tell if they’re twisted
(girdled) around the trunk. With bare-root trees, the entire root system is
exposed, so what you see is what you get. Bare root trees can have up to
200% more roots than B&B or container trees, depending on the soil and
transplanting history at the nursery.
Without extra labor and materials, bare root trees cost less and are usually
larger. It makes planting in large quantities easier on the pocketbook.
A young tree without soil weighs little, so it easy to move and plant.
You can see the root flare (the area between the straight trunk and roots)
on a bare-root tree, which is often hidden in trees sold in pots. Planting
the root flare slightly above the ground grade provides the best positioning
for your new tree. You’ll have control over that with a bare-root tree
because you’ll see the flare. Burying the tree too deeply like many potted
trees are can suffocate the root system and create a weaker tree-
susceptible to damage later on.
Less fuel spent on transporting extra soil and no need for plastic pots.
Less time to get them in the ground.
Bare root trees are in a dormant state but once they leave the nursery, they
need to get in the ground within a week at the longest. They are only available
in spring. With no soil and exposed roots for too long, the roots can dry out
What are the best
techniques to follow for bare root tree planting?
Use common planting techniques and reduce the time the tree roots are bare. Keep
roots covered, shaded, and moist until actually put in the ground. We’ll supply
you with easy to follow instructions. That’s all there is to it! Though they may
appear weakly without a soil-bound root-ball, these plants really are robust and
healthy – and easily established directly into your landscape. Once you get
comfortable with bare-root plant material, you won’t miss lugging around that
heavy root-ball! Whether you want your trees for their flowers, fruit or
foliage, buying bare-root will get you a great value for your money. You’ll also
save on some back-breaking work as you make your yard – and the world – a little
