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.
Container trees have the advantage here, as they can ship year-round and can be grown and harvested in all seasons.
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.

Container trees cost more than ball and burlap trees, due to their lengthy requirements for a healthy tree such as the pot, better irrigation, fertilization and special growing areas.

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.

Due to the soilless compound container trees are grown in and a smaller root ball size, they dry out quickly. The additional feeder roots require more irrigation than an in-ground tree. These may require extra watering during high heat and wind. Monitor carefully.

Post-Planting Growth
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.

Container trees initially grow quicker because they’ve retained their root system. Using a Red Oak tree as an example, this type of tree will grow around two feet the first year. The second year it will grow about three feet. In year three, it’ll grow around three feet. At the end of year three, a container Red Oak’s branches are around eight feet, and the trunk width is around six inches. Although quicker growing, some studies show container trees can be less anchored, which could cause stability problems in high-wind areas.

Larger material is more readily available in B&B form.
It’s harder to grow larger trees in containers, but this process is improving over time and larger product is becoming more available.
Transplant Shock
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.
This kind of plant keeps all its roots, so there is less of a shock period when planted. The tree will acclimate quickly if in proper growing conditions.
Grown in native soil, a two-foot caliper tree usually requires special equipment and handling to move. This could affect the install crew requirements.

Grown in a soilless media, their components are usually lightweight, which saves manpower and freight costs. No need for special equipment, one or two landscapers can handle container trees.
