Caring for Thousands of Young Trees

With such pleasant weather here in the Northeast, we're getting many tasks done around my Bedford, New York farm.

My outdoor grounds crew is busy caring for all sorts of potted saplings I have waiting to be transplanted into the ground. These saplings, or young trees, were originally ordered as bare-root cuttings, which are plants that are removed from the earth while dormant and stored without any soil surrounding their roots. I order some every spring and then nurture them in containers behind my stable for a couple of years until they are ready to plant in more permanent locations.
