Transplants are planted into rows, and the beds look similar to seedbeds except that the growing density is less to allow for faster growth. Transplant beds are fertilized, irrigated, and have the same root culture treatments as do bareroot seedlings. The transplanting process creates better caliper and roots than a comparably-sized seedling. Transplants are used for harsher outplanting sites, where animal browsing is a problem, or plant competition is severe.
