Tissue Culture Shade Trees

 

AgriForest is pleased to offer a wide variety of tissue culture Shade Trees. Our tissue culture Shade Trees exhibit a more condensed, upright branching habit, an equal root to shoot ratio, and a higher survival rate after field planting compared to conventionally grown ones. Also, because our plants are not budded or grafted, there are no problems with suckering.
