What are bare root evergreen seedlings?

Germinated from seed directly in the ground and grown for one to two years, wholesalers often buy bare root evergreen seedlings to transplant for field growing. Bare root seedlings are among the cheapest but also the smallest size of evergreen tree that you can buy, and come in a myriad of species and relative sizes. Most pine and spruce seedlings tend to grow faster and are therefore usually larger than fir seedlings.

We grow our evergreen seedlings in southwest Michigan in the lower peninsula, which features a perfect climate and soil for this type of farming. Our evergreens receive significant “lake effect” snowfall in the winter, which tends to mitigate problems such as evergreen tree winterburn. Evergreen nurseries in this area are only rivaled in size and production by those in Oregon and Washington.

Bare root evergreen seedlings require significant care during the first growing season after planting, especially providing adequate water during hot or dry weather. The major advantage of bare root evergreen seedlings is the low cost and relative ease of planting. However, this low cost and ease of planting comes with the trade-off: small size and the need for significant TLC [and good weather] during the first year to achieve success.

If you can successfully nurse a freshly planted crop of bare roots seedlings for the first year, they are significantly more robust the following year. They will need no significant additional help except occasional watering during mild to moderate drought.

How are bare root evergreen seedlings shipped?

We carefully soak the roots of our evergreen seedlings in water, then pack in plastic bags containing damp sphagnum moss to retain good moisture during shipping. Our bare root evergreen seedlings range in size from 5 to 20 inches [not including roots] depending on the species. However, most of our bare root evergreen seedlings average 6 to 14 inches. Please refer to the exact sizing info on each specific page for each species.
