Things to note about bare root trees prior to planting:

  • Call before you dig!
  • To prevent the tree from breaking its dormancy, you must keep it cool (ideally between 30 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Keep your bare root tree moist in a bucket of water or the damp roots wrapped in a plastic bag.
  • Store the trees in your unheated garage or against the north side of your house.
  • Just before planting, inspect the roots and cut off any that are dead or broken.
  • If the roots feel dried out at all, submerge them in water for a couple of hours before planting.
  • Keep the roots in a bucket of water or wrapped in moist burlap until the tree is in the ground.
