The benefits of trees are numerous; such as beautification, windbreaks, energy and soil conservation, privacy screens, noise reduction, wildlife habitat, and more.
Keep in mind that bare-root seedlings are much smaller than most potted or “ball and burlap” trees that you might purchase from a nursery; so allow extra time (years) for seedling trees to reach the desired height.
Now is a great time to place your order and make any necessary site preparations so you’ll be ready for planting when your seedlings arrive.
