Bareroot seedlings are the most economical planting stock for large planting projects. They are the best performers in open field plantings where competition is high.
Bareroot seedlings are lifted from the fields, and sold dormant, without soil surrounding the roots. They are generally only available first thing in the spring after frost has left the ground, when handling and planting stresses are minimal.
