FAQ

What does 'bareroot' mean?

Bareroot tree seedlings and transplants are field-grown. They are removed from the ground while they are dormant, which in central Maine is typically between mid-April and the first week of May. The excess dirt is removed from the roots. We place a packaging wrap around the roots and then secure them in a bundle tied with string for transport.

When do I plant my bareroot seedlings and transplants?

Your bareroot tree seedlings and transplants should be planted within 24-48 hours of being removed from the ground on our farm.

What is the guarantee on my bareroot seedlings and transplants?

During their first growing season, newly planted bareroot trees of all heights and root masses require moisture monitoring, watering as needed and extensive weed and sod control. If you are committed to putting in the work during the first growing season, you can expect to have a high survivability rate. Our guarantee is that the bareroot trees seedlings and transplants that you are purchasing are healthy, fully budded, are in a dormant state, have moist roots and are properly packaged for transportation.
