Video shows how B&B (ball & burlap )trees are dug and put into their baskets for transport (Colorado Blue Spruce in this case). First with the help of a spotter the spade is centered around the already tied tree. The machine digs the tree. Any excess roots are trimmed. The basked already lined with burlap is guided in place to avoid crushing the basket ( as is known to happen with other methods) when you set the tree into the basket. The burlap is secured with pinning nails, the basket is crimped. .... not shown is the next step where the top or crown is tied with twine the basket is crimped on top .This process is to ensure the root ball stays intacted with minimal root disturbance.
