If you plan on planting trees this spring, the Oregon State University Extension Service has tree-planting tips to help young seedlings survive. However seedlings are packaged, they should be pro- tected from direct sunlight when transported. Plan your planting so trees are in cold storage until planting time. Storage time for bare-root trees should be kept to a minimum. Seedlings should be protected from freezing. Heeling-in is not recommended in most situations because it is an extra step that causes mechanical damage. Dipping roots in water is fine, but prolonged submersion will kill roots. Minimize root exposure to drying winds and sunlight. Plant when cloudy or raining for best results. If it's not raining dip roots in water, place seedlings in plantingbag or bucket and place moss or wet burlap over roots. Don't plant when temperature is over 70 degrees or wind is greater than 20 mph. Plant seedling roots at nursery depth or a little deeper and in a natural position. Fill the planting hole with moist soil and eliminate air pockets around roots. Try to keep roots moist at all times. Even if trees are handled and planted correctly, efforts can fail if animals or competing grass and brush become a problem. Thank You Whoa!
