Planting new tree from nursery

I imagine one needs to break up the root ball a little and pull some roots out of it. How best to go about it, so that the tree suffers less shock and starts to get established quickly?

Depends if B&B or potted. For potted it's probably a bit root bound so untwine any roots that are wrapping around but don't loosen the potting soil. With balled and burlapped simply untie the burlap and open it, spread it at the bottom of the hole, it'll eventually decompose... don't break up the earth ball. For more details you need to give more info; type of trees, size, where.

Thanks. This a Fern Pine, potted, and about 6' tall, zone 8b. It's in a smaller pot, maybe a 1 gallon pot.
