It pays in the long run to buy trees of the highest quality, even though they may be more expensive, from a local nursery with a good reputation. Buy only plantings that have healthy foliage, free of any obvious discoloration, damage, pests, or diseases. Trees 8-10 feet tall, either balled and burlapped or container grown, are usually the best buy. If they are sold in balled and burlapped, the burlap should be tightly filled with soil.
