We had a bit of tree mortality last year and so the council authorized replanting those river birch that were weed whipped to death. We have purchased a fair number of bare root trees from Cold Stream Nursery in Michigan in the past.  Their stock has been hardy and they stand behind their product.  Bare root trees usually transplant well as they are smaller and less stressed than if fully leafed out.  If you would like to add any of their products to our order, you will save  the shipping costs (plus there is no tax!).  Go to www.coldstreamfarm.net/ and see if you are inclined to join us with an order. As the Chinese Proverb notes: "The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago.  The second best time is now."
