Details & Features

The future of the pine forestry seedling industry is containerization.

Proptek’s air pruning forestry containers produce pine seedlings with an exceptionally natural root system time and time again. Root circling caused by growing in a container is completely eliminated due to Proptek’s patented specialist root technology.

This version is our super deep tray at 6 inches, meaning it is especially suited to propagating Longleaf pine.

Our tray is designed to be compatible with mechanization which will help reduce your labor costs. Furthermore, less fertilizer is required than bareroot and Styrofoam setups, which together with a higher plant survival rate and less wasted seed, helps boost your bottom line profitability.

All our propagation trays and containers are made from injection molded plastic, which benefits pine propagators in numerous ways:

– Plants pull incredibly easily and vastly reduces the likely hood of doing invisible damage to the seedling

– Containers are rigid so sit on benching well and are easy to carry.

– They last a very long time – no more throwing out Stryoblocks every year.

– Can be effectively steam sterilized with no negative effects on either the life of tray or plant pulling.

– We can design in features that really look after and nurture the plant, such as the vented top surface and the extra drainage holes.

A common concern is that black trays will get too hot sitting in the sun. This has been investigated and trailed for years and has been consistently found to not be a problem in practice. Tens upon tens of millions of pine seedlings are grown in Proptek containers year after year and the quality and consistency of the seedlings has been exceptional and industry standard-setting throughout. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like more details.

Please Note…

1 Full truck loads can fit more trays per pallet as a dedicated full size 53ft lorry is used for delivery. For partial truck loads, we cannot guarantee the height of the lorry, so pallets must fit into all commercial freight vehicles. If arranging your own transport, please advise us at the earliest opportunity on the internal height of your vehicle.

2 Trays are stacked loose or partly loose to get the maximum number of trays per container. This will result in lower unit shipping cost but also more labor to unload

All statistics and measurements may vary so please check before purchasing, if critical, or ask for sample.

Working with Proptek has helped us revolutionize how we and the industry grow pine. Proptek’s containers are sturdy and produce incredibly high-quality seedlings with natural roots. The seedlings are so good from these containers that we have been able to significantly extend our growing season. We’ve saved big too on our labor bill, as these trays work so well with our seeding lines and the plants pull so easily too it makes the job of boxing up so straightforward. Containerized pine needs a Proptek container.
