The Long Tube Stocktype and Expandable Stinger

Nurseries are growing larger and larger stock for restoration projects. The size and shape of containers have evolved from the short, round 1-gallon containers to containers that are much deeper and narrower.

These limitations can be overcome with the use of the long tube stocktype and the expandable stinger.
