Seedlings make whips then whips make trees. Seedlings are tiny saplings that come from seeds. Restoration and commercial land planting groups opt for seedlings because they are inexpensive and you can plant thousands per day. They grow moderate and become large 3-4 feet tall trees wihtin a couple years. Seedlings is something a home owner would not want to plant, they are too small to protect from mowers and weed eaters.
Your plants will be shipped bare root. See more information on bare root plants.
