What will you receive?
When you order a tree from Online Orchards, you can expect it to arrive packaged in one of two ways depending on the growing season. When the trees are dormant in November through June, the roots are dipped in a thick gelatinous hydrogel solution which really acts as a sponge of water surrounding the roots that the tree can pull moisture from as needed during its time in shipment! After being dipped, the roots are then sealed in an airtight green wrap that both holds the hydrogel in place and protects the roots. If you order a tree between the months of June and October, when the weather becomes to warm to ship bare-root trees any longer, you can expect to receive them growing in a tall pot filled with shavings, sawdust, or soil, depending on what's best for your specific variety of tree!
