Will My Yew Bushes Survive With Burlap Sacks on Them?

blackthumb added on June 6, 2011 | Answered

My landscaper just installed a lot of stuff. I was watering my yews and noticed the burlap sacks were still tied around the root ball. I untied the knots and spread it away from the top of the root ball. Will my Yews survive this? Or do I have to raise ---- with my landscaper?

In theory, the burlap should rot away over time as the roots grow. I usually slit the burlap to give the roots a better chance, but I'm told it isn't necessary.
