    When planting B &B trees I have come across the instructions in reputable aboriculture books, etc. which recommend removing at least the top half of burlap from the ball.  I can not find the reason WHY.  Yes, I assume that it helps the roots get started into the surrounding soil more quickly than if the burlap was left on—BUT–I can find no research (including the ISA of which I am a member) that tells WHY or IF this is important.   Does anyone have experience that would inform me?  Thank you.  JB
