We’ve been developing a custom “plug transplant” growing system for quite a few years now, and in the learning process we’ve made [and continue to make] a lot of mistakes [see photos below]. There is a difficult balancing act needed while growing this way to achieve top quality trees. We often end up with “scratch-n-dent” quality evergreens sporting small or damaged tops, aborted top buds, split tops, insufficient root growth, frost damage, deer damage, small size, etc]. We could grow for them for another year and the trees would be absolutely fantastic, but often we just don’t have the room to do so.
SOLD OUT till Fall 2020 or Spring 2021
These otherwise healthy trees are often called “conservation grade” or “park grade” trees. Since we try to ship up to a standard, not down to a price, we occasionally end up with a large number of these healthy but ugly duckling trees and sell them at a lower price.
Discount codes are not permitted for conservation grade plug transplants, since they are already discounted 30% off retail price.

Soil conservation districts around the country buy “conservation grade” transplants to replant wild areas and return deforested areas back to their original splendor. But because they generally plant in remote areas, soil conservation districts are only concerned with healthy and cheap, not with pretty “specimen quality”. Conservation grade transplants become pretty within a few years of their own accord, with the end result being healthy, mature evergreens at low cost to county and state budgets. You too can take advantage of the cost savings of the “conservation grade” approach for your own planting project.
