The Benefits of Bare-Root Trees...
Bare-root trees are grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.
Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.
If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing.
Selling bare-root trees allows us to offer you a higher quality product at a lower price.
Get your new plants off to the right start by using DIEHARD™ Transplant.
This soil amendment contains 16 strains of mycorrhizal fungi, biostimulants, beneficial bacteria and Horta-Sorb® water management gel.
Simply sprinkle the product into the planting hole adjacent to the root ball when planting.
The organisms will start to work right away supplying the roots with much need nutrition.
The specially formulated Horta-Sorb® will reduce transplant stress and aid in water retention.

Yellow Delicious Apples are great for storage…just pick them when they're ripe and snack for months! Easy to grow and disease resistant!
They are normally planted in pairs so they can pollinate each other. This pollination causes your tree to produce more fruit! Pair up your Yellow Delicious with Gala, Red Fuji or Granny Smith apple trees for best pollination.
Yellow Delicious Trees from Fast Growing Trees are pruned back and trained to develop an advanced branching structure. This process means more work and an extra year for us, but the difference you experience is dramatic.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Yellow Delicious Apple Tree.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Yellow Delicious Apple Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Yellow Delicious Apple Tree again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
