In most cases, the rootball of saplings is severely damaged at transplantation.  Grown in more or less ideal conditions in classical plastic bags in a nursery, they are transported to the field, where the bags are cut open and the rootball roughly handled, whereby almost all the fine absorbing roots are broken and survival rate is quite low.  When saplings are grown and planted in plastic bottles or pots, this damage is avoided.  Young saplings show a survival rate of almost 100 %.  Here are a few examples to show details of this method.
