For more than 100 years since our founding in 1906, Bass has been populating pecan orchards throughout the United States with quality trees. During much of the Twentieth Century, Bass was considered the largest pecan tree nursery in the world. As many as 2.5 million pecan trees were in the nursery at one time.
We have been the stewards of Bass for almost ten years and we strive to continue the legacy of quality set forth in the century before. With the cornerstone of history and the science and innovation that we have implemented, Bass introduces our Root-Max™ trees to the marketplace.
Root-Max™ trees are grown in root training patented containers designed to create dense fibrous root systems which will lead to better livability and faster growth. This will promote earlier production with trees will be larger at an earlier age. Larger trees will produce more nuts or fruit. We focus on producing larger container grown trees which will transplant better and produce sooner that bare root trees.
Bass is excited to introduce trees in new categories. In addition to pecan trees, we are now producing a large number of hard and soft mast trees for wildlife habitat enhancement. Many of these are excellent for landscape and orchard plantings as well.
To insure the best quality trees, we use as many of our own resources as possible. Our root-stock is grown from seed originating in our own orchards and much of the scion wood for our grafted selections originates in our orchards as well. We are not just a nursery. We actually grow many of the species we produce in our own orchards. This gives us a unique perspective in the development and care of our trees.
We are continually adding to our offerings. However, if there is something that you are looking for that is not listed, please let us know and we may have a source for it or we can grow the material for you. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have.
