Grow bags:

  - Difficult to produce a tree that is planted too deep because the bag is only 12-14 inches deep
  - Root pruning effect of bag eliminates root circling
  - Bag is filled with compost made on-site, eliminating field soil loss and utilizing a renewable resource (rather than growing mixes or field soil)
  - Final product is much lighter than B&B, reducing handling and shipping costs, as well as planting costs for the end-user.
  - The plant can be harvested in the summer, providing great flexibility to the customer.
  - Unlike bare root, no special care is required besides watering regularly.
