About Our Auction

Please see full list of trees and shrubs at https://buroak.net/inventory
Trees range 1 foot to 6 feet in height, and are grown in Southern Indiana soil using a patented method that promotes the growth of a well-developed root structure, with no girdling or tangled roots, common with trees grown in tradition containers. Trees are provided in a 20 or 24 inch tall, 6 or 8 inch diameter container that has no bottom, weighing between 30 and 50 pounds. The trees are easy to plant in a 12-inch diameter hole of the proper depth.
These trees will not generally require staking but taller ones may. Trees, when planted and then properly cared for, will overtake a larger more expensive tree planted at the same time within 3 to 4 years.
Planting and tree care instructions will be provided.
