Tree Guidelines

Guidelines for Growing, Installing and Maintaining Healthy Trees

Prepared by the Illinois Tree Specification Review Committee

Nursery Propagation, Growing, Harvesting & Handling

Every phase of production and handling of nursery trees must be done well to have high quality trees to plant in the landscape. There is no substitute for obtaining quality liners and planting them correctly in the nursery. Harvesting correctly and creating a good “package” will assure that trees arriving on the landscape site, can be planted without having to spend extra time correcting problems resulting from the production process.
