Care of Balled & Burlapped Stock

When unloading your B&B stock, handle only by the root ball.  If the nursery stock is lifted or carried by the trunk or branches, root damage may result.  As you handle the stock by the root ball, care should be taken not to loosen the ball lacing or the lacing which supports the wire basket.  Do not drop the root ball.  It can break, reducing the chances of survival.

If you intend to hold your stock, untie the tops, place stock together, mulch and water thoroughly.   Watering is most thorough if an overhead system or a low pressure root feeder is used.


Important to all Landscape Contractors and Garden Center Operators

Be sure you thin the tops of all shade and ornamental trees.  At least 1/3 of all leaf bearing branches should be selectively removed at planting time.  The tops should be pruned in such a manner that natural shape of the tree is not altered.
