Using pulp paper pots permanently for fruit trees

gardenweb88(9)April 1, 2013

Does anyone have opinions about using large pulp paper pots as permanent containers for above ground growing of fruit trees? They're advertised as more durable than plastic pots. I'm trying to understand what type of pot I need to use for permanent potting of fruit trees. Plastic vs pulp vs whatever vs wood vs whatever else

The best pots are probably those air pot types that cause air pruning of the root tips. This reduces circling roots. I've never tried them, too cheap for such an expensive pot.
