We have chosen to supply smaller 60-90cm trees for a number of reasons but I guess the main ones from your point of view is that they are more cost effective but will also produce a much better tree.

Bare root tree seedlings available online

As you can see in the image above, tree roots don't mirror the shape of the canopy below ground but spread out much further than the tree in a wide mat close to the surface. This makes sense as there is more air and nutrients in the top layers of soil. The surface roots form a fine web and are the feeding roots while the deep tap roots below the tree are growing down in search of water.

The problem with replanting larger trees is no matter how much of a root ball you bring with it you will have lost over 50% of the original root mass. Smaller transplants have a more balanced root/stem ratio so will establish quicker and produce a healthier, more stable tree.

Staking a newly planted bare root tree

Staking Trees
One of reasons trees need to be staked when planted is that their canopy is out of balance with their root systems. Staking is almost inevitable with a large transplant but is not necessary with trees below 120cm. A tree needs an amount of movement when young as this strengthens up the trunk and also gives it it's taper. Trunk movement also stimulates root growth so although staked trees might grow taller quicker than unstaked trees, their trunks are weaker and their root systems are less developed.

This Autumn we are offering the following varieties, all 120cm or below. I will be providing more information on tree planting in the coming weeks but for now please drop me a mail if you need help either choosing or planting a tree, my email is andrew@quickcrop.ie.
