Bare root seedlings are ideal for stream restoration and wetland mitigation projects. 

Bare root seedlings are only available during the winter months, but we are now accepting pre-orders. View our expected availability in the above downloads, and contact us to reserve plants. Additional species may be available this winter.

Seedlings are usually 12-18″ plants lifted from the soil in the fall and winter.  The soil is mostly removed from the roots which are then dipped in a moisture retention polymer.  The plants are stored in bags in a refrigerated building.
