Here's a sample submitted by Darius Grigaliunas...
Cooler air temperatures mean much less stress on the plant and more energy for root establishment.
Ground temperatures cool much slower than air temperatures in the Fall allowing for a long season of root establishment (Roots will grow as long as soil temperatures stay above 40 degrees F., which is typically late November)
Ground temperatures take a long time to warm in spring meaning root growth and establishment takes far longer in spring than Fall
Natural moisture is more available in Fall for plants allowing for easier establishment in the landscape and less need for customers to apply water in most Fall seasons.
Fall planting and establishment in the landscape allows plants to grow with far less stress the following spring.
Starting in September, trees can be chosen by you and harvested from our growing fields in October & November. The trees can be replanted almost immediately thereby eliminating most of the stress caused by sitting above ground for an extended period of time.
Fall offers a greater selection - You can choose from over 5,000 trees we have growing in our fields.
