Ball & Burlap
B&B Trees are typically harvested during their dormant season as to have the least disturbance to the root system. This makes it more difficult to keep up with demand during growing season in the yards. They’re also difficult to harvest rainy season due to digging difficulty.
Grown in the ground, ball and burlap trees don’t need much extra attention. They don’t require special grow areas, pots, special irrigation, and fertilization methods. These are almost always cheaper than the container tree.
B&B trees dry out more slowly. These types of trees can suffer from too much irrigation, which can lead to root ball damage. If over-watered once planted, it can cause stunted growth or even death from the lack of feeder roots and shock. Monitor carefully.
B&B trees lose at least 40% of their roots, so they take more time to grow. Using a Red Oak tree as an example, this type of tree will grow around a half foot the first year planted. The second year it will grow around 15 inches. In year three, it’ll grow around two feet. At the end of year three, a B&B Red Oak will have branch lengths around four feet and a trunk width of around 5 inches.
Larger material is more readily available in B&B form.
B&B trees have a significant number of roots cut when wrapped. This will slow growth for 1-2 years, and on occasion can create an unviable tree. However, it won’t be known until it is fully planted.
Grown in native soil, a two-foot caliper tree usually requires special equipment and handling to move. This could affect the install crew requirements.
