October 2020 – 2nd Edition

Hand Planting Arborgen Tree Seedlings Treelines October 2020 2Nd EditionOnce a landowner has site preparation complete, the big question is which planting method they should choose.

Both hand and machine planting are acceptable. However, site conditions may only allow one or the other. The tract size, availability of contractors, amount of debris, contour, slope, and soil conditions are a few factors to consider as to which method will work best. The cost of each method should also be considered.

Picking Up Your Seedlings

Staying Safe this Planting Season

Chauncy Jordan Arborgen Tree Seedlings Treelines October 2020 2Nd EditionThe lifting season is upon us for our seedling crop. There are hurdles every year, and 2020 seems to be an overachiever in this regard. To keep everyone safe, deliver you the seedlings you have ordered and provide the customer service you expect, we ask for your cooperation in working with our nurseries to make this a safe and productive season.

It is more critical than ever this year to call ahead to arrange pick-up of your seedlings. This will allow our nursery personnel to provide you expedited service in a safe environment.

Some of the changes you may see at the nurseries this season are:

  • Limited number of people and transactions inside the office.
  • Designated areas and bathrooms for visitors and customers.
  • Wear a mask or practice social distancing.
  • Look for signage and messaging from your nursery to help make your visit as safe as possible.
  • Utilize hand sanitizer when entering the office.

If you are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, we ask that you do not enter the nursery.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the nursery you plan to visit.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Chauncy Jordan,
Director, U.S. Nursery Operations
