Nothing conveys the message quite like pictures. While this section is far from exhaustive with respect to root problems, it does illustrate a few of the consequences of bad practice and what can develop over time. Drainage can be especially important with newly-planted trees – particularly container-grown ones, as water flows easily through the rootball. Balled and burlapped trees are generally better survivors with fewer inherent problems caused by the grower.
