- Some nurseries dig Thujas out of the ground and send them bare rooted or "ball & burlap".
- This can leave up to 90% of the roots behind.
- The tree can lose up to a year of growth, while struggling to replace it s root system.
- You also risk losing the tree, since it s less able to absorb vital nutrients and water.
- Before winter, add 4 to 6 inches of mulch, simply to delay the ground freeze and allow the roots to keep growing.
- Leave the mulch until spring once the last hard frost has passed.
