How are the trees grown & dug?
Seeds are directly dropped onto a prepared seed bed in the spring and grown for 1-3 years. Most are grown for 2 years. During dormant season they will be lifted, shaken out, sorted, graded and bagged. Then they go into cold storage or freezer storage until it’s time to be shipped or transplanted. It takes nearly three months to dig all the seedlings, we will pack around 100,000 or more each day.
