Our Mini-Max™ program provides 5”x5”x12” containers for pecan trees and 4”x4”x10”containers for all other species. The bottomless pots may be mini in size, but inside, the maximum fibrous root system will ensure the most favorable start possible. Mini-Max™ pecans are air root pruned 3 times to break tap root dominance. These are the same trees that we move up to our 7 gallon Root-Max™ containers later in their growth cycle.
While the pot is small, the tree is not. Many varieties are up to 3 feet tall in our Mini-Max™ containers when shipped to you. Now making it more accessible to everyone, we can ship all of our Mini-Max™ selections via UPS – even one single tree at a very economical price!
White oaks produce acorns each year, have acorns with fewer tannins and usually drop their acorns early in the fall. Red oak acorns take two years to mature on the tree but have a crop almost every year, so there are uneven aged acorns on the tree. Red oaks typically have a higher tannin content and typically drop their acorns over a long period of time (from October to as late as February depending on the species.) Both red and white oaks should be planted for wildlife probably slightly more red oaks than whites in your planting.
Since 1906 Bass Pecan Company has provided pecan trees for pecan orchards around the world. Our Root-Max™ container grown pecan trees utilize a proprietary germination system and use special containers for aggressive root growth. This protocol allows Bass Pecan to grow superior trees.
Recently, Bass expanded its nursery to include fruit trees, oaks and hybrid oaks along with other wildlife trees and shrubs to provide hunters and other wildlife enthusiasts with sustainable vegetation to enhance wildlife habitat.
