What are Rootmaker Trees?


We have decided to grow our trees in Rootmaker bags so we can produce a high quality product to offer to our customers. With Rootmaker trees, you end up with a very fibrous root system, no girdling roots and very few circling roots. We start out collecting our seed the previous year, stratify it in the cold, germinate it in the spring, and transplant into small rootmaker cells. When ready, the cells are shifted into 5” Rootmaker bags, and many stay in the bag all year, but some go out into the field into a larger rootmaker bag to grow into a larger sized tree. The roots of the tree grow out through the bag and can draw in water and nutrients, and when they grow large enough, they are pruned off by constriction. That causes the root to re-branch and become more fibrous. The 5” bags prune roots by constriction and air as they are grown in cinder blocks.

When you transplant a tree that is balled and burlapped, you are only getting about 30% of the root system. When you transplant a Rootmaker tree, you get about 70% of the root system (and it’s a good one too!). That means your tree will establish much quicker, grow faster, and won’t cause you problems down the road. Trees that are grown in smooth plastic pots, will always have circling roots and the tree will almost always never establish and thrive. It might take a few years, but they almost always die (depending on species). Always remember that the Rootmaker bag must be removed prior to planting at it’s final location.
