Planting your trees?

In this video, NVCA staff shares how to plant and protect your new seedlings. 

Follow these tips when you are ready to plant your seedlings:

  • Do not open storage bags until ready to plant
  • Reseal partially used storage bags as quickly as possible
  • Cut the bundling elastics – don’t rip them off. Separate the bundles carefully, without stripping roots
  • Tightly close the storage bags each time you remove trees
  • Load planting pails in the shade and out of the wind, and place seedlings quickly into the planting pail
  • Do not prune roots, especially if you see new white root tips
  • Place seedlings in an upright position and pack loosely so that removal will not damage the tender roots
  • Before stopping for a break, empty the planting pail. If you must stop with trees left in the container, place it in the shade

Caring for your seedlings

The best way to care for your new seedlings is to plant them right away when you bring them home.

If you cannot plant your seedlings right away, follow tips to store your seedlings until you are ready to plant them:

  • Store the seedlings in a cool, shaded area
  • Water seedlings frequently with fresh water
  • Provide good ventilation for the seedlings
  • Avoid placing seedlings in direct sunlight, standing water or low-lying frost pockets
  • Do not open storage bags until ready to plant
  • Do not use bags with rips or holes that would allow air in to dry roots
  • Plant trees within 5 days of purchase
