The Q&A Archives: Canadian Hemlock

Question: My Hemlock came balled in burlap and wired tightly together. I am wondering if I need to cut the wire and loosen the burlap or can I just leave the wire on and open the burlap. Thanks

Answer: It is best to cut and remove the wire and also remove the burlap. The new synthetic burlap used today is virtually indistinguishable from the natural fiber type. Since it won't rot, it needs to be removed.
