A second study was installed on UNL's East Campus in Lincoln. Part of the study includes evaluation of three nursery growing methods for Autumn Blaze Maple: B&B, traditional container and grow-bags. A second part of the study is designed to evaluate planting depth on tree health. Ornamental plum trees grown in grow bags were planted at varying depths ranging from 4" above grade to 12" below grade. All trees will be monitored for growth rate and their root systems will be excavated by air-spade in future years to evaluate root impacts.
