The tube is to be set 2 into the ground.Storage and Preparation of SeedlingsBare root planting stock must be dormant. Buds must be firm with no evidence of new growth. As soon as seedlings are received, the crates or bundles should be opened to prevent heating.Store seedlings in cool but not freezing conditions (35o to 50o air temperatures). Seedling roots should be kept moist, but not wet. Avoid damage to roots during storage.If seedlings need to be stored for over one week and cold storage is not available, the seedlings should be heeled-in, in a moist, shady location. This is done by digging a extraneous trench, placing the seedlings in the trench and covering the roots with moist soil. Do not allow the roots to dry out.If needed, root-prune seedlings that have excessively long main roots (roots longer than the effective depth capacity of planting tools or machines). Usually this is about 8 inches. However no more than one-quarter of the root system should be removed.PlantingA minimum of 100 to 150 containerized or bare root seedlings/acre spaced approximately 20x20 or 17x17 are to be planted, in a random fashion or in staggered rows (plant in a reasonable manner so that you can perform maintenance).Mix species with in the planting. Avoid planting any one species next to trees of the same species as much as possible. Exceptions include Persimmon which need to be planted in a group for cross fertilization. If planted in groups evergreens may be spaced approximately 6-10 apart.
