NATSPEC GUIDELINES FOR TREE PRODUCTION

POTTING UP

At the time of potting up…

  • Any confused or circling roots are pruned back to where they meet the wall of the container.
  • The tree is potted in the centre of the container and is vertical.
  • The depth of planting is correct.
  • Staking of trees is only conducted where necessary and stakes are placed outside the root ball.

REGULAR INSPECTIONS

All trees are inspected for the following at each stage of growth…

  • No “J” roots or root circling present.
  •  There is a single leader and no damage to the tip.
  • The tree is self-supporting.
  • The tree is free from pests and diseases.
  • The tree is true to form.

TREE QUALITY

We ensure that our trees…

  •  Have a strong root structure and formation.
  • Have single leaders, are straight and have a wider base then the top of the tree.
  • Are full of good health and vigour and are of even quality.
  • Are planted in the centre of the container at the correct depth ensuring there is no damage to the stem or root structure.

AFTER YOUR PURCHASE

Once trees leave our nursery, structural integrity becomes the responsibility of the client. At the time of planting the following practices should be followed –

  • Any root distortion or confusion should be pruned.
  • A possible trimming or roots back to where they emerge from the root ball will encourage lateral root   growth away from the trunk.
  • Where staking is necessary, ensure the stake is placed outside of the root ball and ties are loose.

Following these guidelines will ensure your trees performance in the years to come.
