Twin Lakes Nursery specializes in a large variety of specimen, container grown trees. Sizes range from 45-gallon Accelerator plastic containers up to 96-inch wooden boxes. The plastic Accelerator pots have vertical corrugations in the container wall to guide the root tips to air-pruning slots. This results in a denser, more uniform root mass with no root circling. While plastic containers are used for the smaller varieties, wooden boxes are utilized for many of the larger trees. Compared to traditional smooth walled plastic containers, wooden boxes have better temperature control of the root zone and can be nearly 40 degrees cooler than a plastic container. Wooden boxes are natural and improve rooting. They are simple to handle, plant and transport, therefore make the planting process easier for the customer.
Another key component of the Twin Lakes Nursery product is the planting mix used for the trees.
Our mix allows the customer to have better moisture retention than the traditional porous bark mulch mix. Less staking is required on job sites due to greater stability provided. It is also very compatible when planting in most soils compared to other bark mulch mixes.
Our growing methods produce uniformity and excellent quality for our customers.
