are plants that have either been grown in a container, or have been field dug and root-pruned to fit in a container. Containerized plants are by definition constrained with regard to root growth, and always have at least some girdling roots if they've been in the container over a period of time.B & B Plants
(balled and burlapped) are trees that have been dug with root balls intact, and wrapped with burlap. The primary disadvantage of field grown trees placed into B&B is that as much as 95% of the absorbing roots can be left behind at digging.
Our nursery trees escape the root disadvantages of Container and B&B trees. The most obvious visual difference is the massive fibrous roots that are put into the ground at planting, as shown in the photos above. Having a fantastic root system like that, is an incredible advantage to insuring the tree obtains healthy establishment in its new and permanent environment.
