Germinated from seed directly in the ground and grown for one to two years, bare root evergreen seedlings are often dug up and transplanted by wholesalers for field growing. They are among the cheapest but also smallest size of evergreen tree that you can buy, and come in a myriad of species and relative sizes. Most pine seedlings and spruce seedlings tend to grow faster and are therefore usually larger than fir seedlings. Our evergreen seedlings are grown in southwest Michigan in the lower peninsula, which features a perfect climate and soil for this type of farming. We receive significant “lake effect” snowfall in the winter, which tends to mitigate the problems associated with cold weather, 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 of 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 and may need no significant additional help except in the case of mild to moderate drought.

We carefully pack the roots of our evergreen seedlings 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, but 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.
