Will All Of My Trees and Shrubs Survive?
Factors such as site conditions, soil type, precipitation and temperature will affect the survival rate you experience. Someone who plans, prepares the site, promptly plants and provides proper care for their trees will undoubtedly experience the highest survival rates. Conversely, someone who plants their trees on a distant property and leaves them to fend for themselves will experience significantly reduced survival rates.
When the correct conditions are met, the average survival rate for bare root conifers is 75% or more. You may anticipate an 80-90% survival rate for most bare root hardwoods and shrubs. This applies to most plants, whether they are young or more mature. It would be extremely rare to experience a 100% survival rate.
