What is a balled-and-burlapped tree?

A balled-and-burlapped tree is grown in native soil and weighs more than container grown trees. The trees are harvested in the fall and as much soil as possible is retained prior to being wrapped in burlap. Balled-and-burlapped trees have a healthier root system than container grown trees.
