Thousands of seeds have been placed in the soil, dormant and waiting for Spring's warm sun.
Many of these trees will begin their lives as a humble seed this spring, grown out in raised air-prune beds and later moved to permanent homes.
Air Prune Beds and Flats
We built our own air prune beds and flats using scrap lumber and 1/4" hardware cloth for the bottoms. Using air prune beds, we are able to grow thousands of seedlings in a small space. Because the roots naturally air prune themselves upon reaching the bottom of the box, they form dense, thick root systems that are easy to transplant.
