What is a Bare Root Tree?

When you order bare root shrubs or trees from us, they come in lots of 25 each.  Then your complete bare root order is bundled up together.  Pictured above are several bare root orders, some containing just one lot of 25, some containing several.

You might think that these look like dead sticks, but we assure you they are not.  Remember that non-evergreen species go dormant in the winter.  It won't be long and these will be budding out.  Be sure to get them in the ground as quickly as possible.
