I received some fruit trees in the mail that are about 5 feet tall. I won't be able to plant them until Friday. They were packed in what looks like moist wood chips. Should I put the roots in a bucket of water until I can get them in the ground? I'll keep them in a cool dark place.

I have the same situation. My trees arrived today and I will be planting Saturday at the earliest. I googled and they suggested putting moist newspaper in and around the roots. It'll take some TLC this week
