It's important not to use containers that are much larger than the rootball because the extra moisture held in the potting soil can cause root rot. But for trees, the 1 gallon pots should be fine. You don't want the pots too small or they will tip over as the tree grows. Just make sure the soil is very well draining. You can add perlite to the mix if needed.
