Woody Plant Plugs
Frequently we receive requests for bare root woody plants. While bare root material is often an economical means of sourcing trees and shrubs it does have some limitations. We are offering an increasing number of woody species in our 38-cell tray, which we believe is a superior and inexpensive alternative to bare root. Unlike bare root material, plugs can be planted throughout the growing season, not just the dormant periods. Plugs vary in height from 8” to 24” (sometimes taller). They can be purchased individually or by the flat.
In some cases plugs are a better choice than a live stake primarily because for about the same cost you will get a plant that is already rooted and there is a better diversity of species to choose from. Plugs of a number of species can be planted deep like a live stake and will root adventitiously and offer immediate structural benefits to slopes, lakeshores, and riverbanks.
Below is a list of some of the trees and shrubs offered in plugs.
