Tree Configuration

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Custom tree configuration is one of TreeLogic’s specialties.  Keeping pace with increased development costs, high density planting systems, and market demands require trees that maximize early production and return on investment.  Therefore, TreeLogic gives great attention to root formation, tree size, branch development, and overall structure quality.

Root Formation

TreeLogic employs advanced soil nutrition, planting technique, automated irrigation, and other key production practices to stimulate the formation of fibrous well-branched root systems on all dwarf, semi-dwarf, and full-sized rootstock/variety combinations.


Bud Wood Selection

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

During the contract tree production process, TreeLogic uses either dormant or actively growing graft or bud wood for tree propagation.  In some cases, TreeLogic provides quality wood from documented sources for varieties it is licensed to grow.  On other occasions, TreeLogic relies on the customer to supply graft or bud wood for the propagation process associated with their tree order.

Locating, selecting, and properly processing quality graft or bud wood demands extreme attention to detail!

Dormant or Actively Growing

Some trees are dormant grafted during the winter season prior to lining out in the spring and other trees are budded in the nursery row during late summer (August).  The tree type you ordered will determine whether dormant or active wood is to be used.


Customer Preparation

TreeLogic grows custom trees and plants to order based on your plant requirements.  Likewise, TreeLogic tries to reduce all production costs to maximize your growing contract benefits.  Pre-delivery customer preparation helps reduce production costs and boost tree transplant and performance results.

Pre-delivery customer preparations include:

  • fall fumigation of planting site
  • fall nutrition application and cultivation
  • fall installation of ponds, pumps, and mainlines
  • fall storage acquisition for spring tree delivery
  • fall scheduling of tree delivery transportation
  • allocation of final spring payment funds
  • pre-plant delivery of irrigation supplies
  • pre-schedule labor and equipment

Pre-delivery customer preparation saves you money!

Plant Storage & Care

Proper tree storage and care protects your tree growing investment.  Nursery trees are young living plants which require responsible storage and care procedures.  All tree care requirements are specific to your tree type, variety, rootstock, digging dates, and storage length.
