Supplies you will need to bring to pick up your seedlings:
- Paper towels or newspaper
- Plastic bags
- Water (We will provide 5 gallon buckets of water to dunk your wrapped seedlings in)
- Keeping roots moist and wrapped snugly at all times is vital to their survival. Seedlings will die if the roots are exposed for just a few minutes, and they dry out. Only open bags to pick out your correct number of seedlings, then close the bag, and make sure to put seedlings in plastic bags to cover the roots snugly until they are planted.
Always plant large trees at least 50 feet from overhead or underground utility lines, and small trees (plum, redbud, dogwood, hawthorn) at least 20 feet from utility lines (call 811 before you dig).
