Trees purchased from wholesale and retail nurseries and garden supply stores generally come in one of three forms:

Balled and Burlapped
The roots of the tree and the ball of soil containing the roots are bound in burlap.

Container-Grown 
The plant is sold in the container in which it was grown.

Bare-Rooted
The plant is sold with the roots exposed.  Not very common with trees.
