What Makes Our Plants Better?

Let us count the ways!

It's the 'little extras' that make a big difference.

Forrest Keeling specializes in the production of native plant materials. We also offer a full line of popular evergreens, trees, shrubs, ground covers and specimen trees suitable for urban and rural landscapes.

RPM stands for “root production method”, but our all-natural, RPM technology is more than simple root pruning. It's a patented, 12-step production method proven over decades to deliver successful projects through stronger, more vigorous plants.

We begin with quality seed sources. The original geographic source of seed, also called, provenance, dictates characteristics such as dormancy periods, fruiting, flowering and leafing out, and hardiness. Each Forrest Keeling plant is tagged with tracking information that identifies these characteristics and helps insure selecting the best plant for your site.

In addition to superior seed stock, Forrest Keeling's patented production technology depends on:

  • Specially formulated, diffused nutrition,
  • Mycorrhizae inoculation,
  • Unique growing medium that promotes plant development, and
  • Proper production timing

Each step is perfectly timed and harmonized to produce unrivaled root mass and vigorous plant growth. Before we ship to you, we add a hydrogel product helps to protect each plants’ soil moisture levels from production through planting. 

Each of these 'little extras' helps your trees,

  • grow faster,
  • produce fruit earlier 
  • thrive and survive! 

RPM trees demonstrate unprecedented survival rates of over 95%, even after 20 years, which saves you time and money and help you create successful projects!

Simply put, our RPM trees provide you the best plant stock on the market today.
