Bare root trees are dug out of the field when dormant – either late fall or early spring and kept in cold storage with moist roots until planting time. A bare root tree has its roots exposed (no root ball or pot). Besides the obvious advantage in shipping and handling of dormant, bare root trees, there is also less chance of transplant shock. However timely planting is important.
