The design of Rocket®Pot’s guide the roots through pits in the pot’s inner wall out through holes in the side and base for air root pruning. This allows Tall Trees to grow trees that they can be confident will pass all council or arborist inspections.
To ensure Tall Trees are growing the best quality trees possible, they track their best practice method back to the initial seed germination. Tall Tree’s propagation stock is directly seeded into an S1020 which is a small ARP pot ensuring a healthy tap root. From there, for each potting on stage, the trees are moved into the relevant sized ARP pot. At no stage during development are these trees grown in a rigid wall pot, this greatly mitigates the risk of root girdling, and greatly improves the quality of the tree ready for installation into the ground. Paired with correct and careful installation practices, this growing method should ensure a quality tree with a healthy root structure well into its maturity.
With increased market competition and ever-thinning margins, the last thing your project needs is for trees requiring to be replaced after installation, or throughout a maintenance period, putting pressure on budgets. Tall Trees have moved all of their eucalypts, and native trees over to this growing method, and are in the process of moving the majority of the popular ornamental street trees (pyrus, acers, lagerstroemias, and more) across to this methodology.
