Powel Nursery, which offers trees and liners grown by a certified Arborist (#SO-6352A) according to ANSIZ60.1 standards, offers seven reasons to plant bare root trees:

The entire root system is exposed. This allows for repair of root problems and correct planting depth.
The media – soil interface issues are resolved completely. (The tree is planted in the soil in which it will live.)
The first two advantages provide for sustainability and thus longevity.
Bare root tree planting requires less equipment, labor and a shallower planting hole.
By far a lighter tree to handle.
Initial cost of tree is considerably less. (Actually about half.)
Freight is significantly less in the era of high fuel costs.
