•        Root specification 
Throughout the tree section we recommend how trees should be specified and this is reflected in the availability guide that is – Bare-root (BR), Root-balled (RB) or Container Grown (CG).

Bare-root trees
Available from November to early April

Bare-root trees are lifted from the ground, either by hand or by mechanical means.  Trees are cut under the root system and lifted therefore protecting as much of the root system as possible.  Soil clinging to the root system will be shaken off, hence the term ‘bare-root’ and the tree should immediately be bagged.  All bare-root trees are placed in thick polythene bags at the time of lifting in the field.  This is important to protect the delicate fibrous roots from drying out causing the tree to either die or struggle to survive once planted because its root system has been severely damaged.

The benefits of Bare root trees are:-
•          Value for money
•          Light to handle
•          Quick to establish with correct after-care

Root-balled trees
Available from November to April

A root balled tree is when it is lifted from the ground with the soil intact around the root system.  On removal from the ground the root-ball is wrapped in biodegradable hessian and non-galvanised wire.  The root-ball should be planted intact with the hessian and wire left on.  Once planted the non-galvanised wire soon breaks down and the hessian will rot, allowing the root system to develop.  The whole benefit of ‘root-balling’ is that the root system remaining after lifting (you will lose about 35% of the root on a regularly transplanted tree) will not be disturbed during handling, transportation and planting.

The benefits are:-
•          Root system once lifted will not be disturbed
•          Packaging bio-degrades
•          Root-balled trees are protected from the rigours of commercial planting

Container grown trees
Available all-year-round

Container grown trees have a ‘complete’ root system and should therefore establish very well once planted.  Trees are lifted either bare-rooted or root-balled and placed in a container (between November and March) and then grown on for at least one growing season, i.e. a tree ‘potted up’ in January would be fully rooted and ready for planting by September.
The benefits are:-
•          No root loss during lifting
•          Planting can take place 12 months of the year
•          Handling on site easier
