2009 - just weeks before the impending future… 2010. As the cool morning air settles, the PVFS staff dons their yellow rain slickers and prepares to receive a massive truck packed full of bare root trees.
Only the “powers-that-be” know how many happy people will set their teeth into a piece of luscious fruit produced from one of these fantastic fruit trees within the coming years.
You have probably sat around on many occasions and wondered “what does it look like to pack 8,000 bare root trees into a cargo truck?” The truck is full of bare root fruit trees and bare root nut trees. Well question no longer:
The general process for receiving these trees requires us to unload them, bundle them to their corresponding bin, count them, “heel them in” and then begin to fill orders. With a full crew down in the warehouse just unloading and “heeling-in” these bare roots will take the entire day - perhaps the first half of the following day.
We have already taken orders for about a quarter of these trees, they are selling fast. Place your order now to receive the varieties that meet your zone and chill hour requirements!
If you would like more information about Bare Root Trees see our literature here.

Thanks for the wonderful pics!! 2 years ago I bought 15 bare root fruit trees from you and they are all very happy and doing well here. Pluots plums peaches and nectarines. It is really neat to see the traveling they did even before I got them. Anyway got a couple pieces of fruit this year looking forward to getting my first big crop this year. Thanks PVFS!
