Fabric Container refers to the pre-formed bag into which we plant a liner.  The main purpose of the fabric container is to allow air penetration.  Unlike solid plastic containers, this textile container allows air to associate with the outside surfaces of the growing media.  Generally, when the roots of the tree encounter this air it causes them to alter their growing pattern, essentially pruning them.  As a result, the tree roots do not swirl inside of the container as they always do in a solid plastic container.  This swirling of roots is commonly known as "root bound" and has significant disadvantages for a tree.



Trees grown in textile containers have a significant advantage over balled-and-burlap trees.  When a balled-and-burlapped tree is dug, the tree spade obviously cuts away all roots that fall outside of the ball.  Typically, the most fibrous of the roots occur outside of the area of the ball.  This creates stress for the tree and this is why there are only certain times of the year when it is safe to dig those trees.

In contrast, the tree or shrub grown in a fabric container has NO STRESS FROM DIGGING.  ALL of the roots are all intact AND the tree is

not root bound. 

Unlike the balled-and-burlapped tree, a fabric container grown tree has NO off season so they can be planted any time of year with a much higher chance of survival.
