Question From: ILLINOIS
Q: when buying a balled and burlap tree is it better to purchase a smaller tree about 10 feet tall vs. a larger tree about 20 feet tall? Will the ratio of the tree size to the root loss be less on the smaller tree?
The smaller tree will quickly catch up to the 20 footer and yes the ratio of root loss is less on the smaller tree. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
