Natural root (also called bare root) trees are shipped without soil around their roots. They are shipped when dormant in the spring and fall seasons. We dip the roots in a hydrating gel to keep them moist during shipping.
There are a number of advantages to natural root trees:

Potted (also called containerized) trees come in 4" containers.
