"Excellent replies. Additional information in lines with Robert and Rob: 1. The tree is not necessarily planted at the correct depth. Without removing the burlap, the contractor could not have adequately checked the location of the root flare.…"

Tyson Carroll replied to Greg Byrer's discussion 'Observations? Thoughts?'
"Twine and burlap should be removed as Robert mentions. Regarding warranty of the plant as it relates to the LC, it all depends on what is written in the docs and specs. Some project require root shaving or corrections by the LC other simply reject…"

Rob Halpern replied to Greg Byrer's discussion 'Observations? Thoughts?'
"Adding to what has already been posted: far too many b&b plants are coming out of nurseries with poor root systems or having been planted too beep in nursery We must be able to get a look at the root ball at planting in order to correct any…"

Andrew Garulay, RLA replied to Greg Byrer's discussion 'Observations? Thoughts?'
"The hole for the root ball should be large enough to get enough access to cut away the sides of the cage under most circumstances. Sometimes the burlap can be in degraded condition and the root ball weakened, so removing the basket and/or the burlap…"

Scott Lebsack replied to Greg Byrer's discussion 'Observations? Thoughts?'
"In my experience, the burlap is biodegradable - part of the point - but I mostly work with stock out of the pacific northwest. Everything should definitely be removed from the trunk and the top 1/3 of the rootball should be exposed - cut the twine…"

Robert Anderson replied to Greg Byrer's discussion 'Observations? Thoughts?'
"Greg, One should always remove the "burlap" not really burlap these days as it is more often than not synthetic and therefore not degradable as is the same for the twine. Always cut these away and remove to well below the root zone of the…"

"Robert-Definitely green side up, so that's good.....and the tree is still alive!  The main reason for the post is to see what people's opinions are regarding the twine, burlap and wire, removal or not, and why.  I personally…"

Robert Anderson replied to Greg Byrer's discussion 'Observations? Thoughts?'
"Not sure where you want us to start? It looks like they got the depth right and the green side is up! Is the tree still alive? That would be important to note as it surely will not last much longer. The rope and fabric around the ball will…"

"When someone gives a $600 proposal to design a half million dollar job it is telling me that there was no confidence, or at least extreme doubt, that this client valued design. Subconsciously, the client did not pass the pre-qualifying screening,…"

Geoff Pickles replied to Greg Byrer's discussion 'Design Fee Shock'
