   As the bare root industry continues to grow and change we here at Kuenzi Turf & Nursery continue to find it necessary to focus on growing and changing in ways that will bring the greatest benefit to our customers.  Our focus is being able to grow a bare root tree with a well balance head, a strong root system, and at a price that to be honest with you does not fully encompass all the quality we work to produce in every tree. 

    Quality is our focus and as we strive to satisfy our customers and we have made large investments to ensure our trees will perform in the outstanding manner our customer surely deserve. 

    Our most recent quality focus has been on producing the best roots possible on Oak, which is a high demand tree, but a tough tree to establish good quality roots.  This spring we will be shipping our first batch of Oak, but they will have a different look than what your use to, because they will be in a 10" In-Ground Fabric bag!!    

    After removing the 10" In Ground fabric bag off the Regal Prince Oak you will notice the proliferation of roots that have been created on this Regal Prince Oak (For more pictures see the Liner Root Mass webpage).  In the photos you will see many swelled nodules that were created as the roots tried to penetrate the In-Ground fabric bag. 

    This process in a sense girdles the roots and creates a swelled root tip, which in essence is stored carbohydrates that will allow for great energy (i.e. Growth) upon planting.  The root mass produced by the In-Ground fabric bag will far out produce any other bare root Oak liner. 

    With most of the extra costs and work being done at our nursery we intend this tree to be an outstanding seller with the capabilities of achieving exceptional growth in the transplant year.  The benefits reaped from these trees could eliminate, we hope, as much as 1 to 2 years off the production time, giving our customers a faster turn around for their dollar!  If this sounds good to you give us a call at 800.285.8337!

    We live to serve you our valuable customers!


"As a long time proponent and user of In-Ground fabric bags here in the mid-west, I'm very pleased to find a west coast grower doing such a good job providing liners using this technology.  Please, Kuenzi, continue to expand your liner offerings."
