My expierence
I just finished planting my orchard this past year. I was able to find all the different variety of trees planted fairly easy, however, when it came to finding healthier more mature Bing Cherry trees Fast Growing Trees was the place I came across to find that tree. I would of like to have found this company sooner as it would have made the investment of my time easier to planting the trees planted as I like the type of trees that where sent by fast growing trees, along with the option of the one year warranty. The trees from fast growing trees are doing well and I look forward to a bounded harvest in the future.

Our experience with the Bing and Tartarian Cherry trees
It has been about 5 months since we received our trees in the mail. They are now planted in our backyard and started sprouting new leaves, which is great to see. I am hoping they will gain enough strength to withstand the winter

Overall, I've rated the experience was satisfactory worth 4-stars, although I would've preferred to give 3 1/2 stars, and taking off the 1 1/2 stars for the following reasons:
-- Not enough branching (I am no expert, but I was hoping for a bit more)
-- Packaging needs to be improved, as it was not sturdy enough and the stems were quite bend (as both the trees were packaged in one long box with the two pots at the other ends of the box). Despite that, I am glad that the trees took root and seem to be growing now

I'm loving all the trees ordered from FGT. This tree is newly planted near my other cherry trees so the cross pollination is there, really looking forward to those wonderful ""eating"" cherries. My other cherry trees are doing well and as healthy as this tree is I'm not going to be surprised if I have cherries in the Spring

Bought this tree last summer, planted it and was growing great. The bunnies had it for lunch over the winter so I thought it was dead, but I see some growth near the bottom. Good strong plants

Two Bing Trees - different outcomes
I'm concerned that the smaller, companion Bing Cherry I bought, lost its leaves weeks ago. The larger tree has all its leaves, just turning color a bit.

Hopefully, if it does not leaf in the spring, Fast-Growing Trees will replace it. FedEx left the trees where I couldn't see them. They were in their boxes a full VERY hot day.

Last autumn, I ordered a new Bing Cherry tree, to replace one that had to be removed. It arrived as promised, and was planted soon thereafter. As of April 2012, it blossomed, and already has fruit emerging.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bing Cherry Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Bing Cherry Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Bing Cherry Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Bing Cherry Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Samantha D on Apr 11, 2016
Is this tree a self pollinator, if not will 2 of the same tree work or do I need another variety in order to pollinate?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You need a 2nd cherry tree of another type for pollination. Look here: http://extension.missouri.edu/p/g6001
If I get the 5-6 ft tree, how soon before I get fruit? (Bing cherry)
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Enter an answer to this question ; Keep in mind that you need to buy another cherry tree such as a black tartarian in order for the Bing cherry tree to polinate. I bought my Bing and Black tartarian (both were 3-4 ft)and planted them as directed last summer. They are growing but I did not get any fruit this year. The bigger the trees get the more blossoms there are for the bees to polinate the trees. Your trees may produce fruit earlier since they are bigger to start with. I am hoping for fruit in the next year or two. I hope this answered your question.
Why do I have very small fruit on my trees? The size of my cherries are the size of a normal cherry's pit
A shopper on Jul 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You might have too many cherries on your tree for your young tree to support. Remove a few of them or prune a few of the branches back. This will cause your tree to send it's energy to the remaining cherries and they'll grow larger.

can you grow a cherry tree in a pot?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can put a cherry tree in a pot, however, they do prefer to be in the ground.
can it grow from seeds?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have not tried , but I would assume so. However if it is a grafted tree you will not get the same tree. As with Pecan trees you cannot "plant" a pecan from a soft shell variety and get a soft shell pecan far as I know. All soft shells are grafted trees generally grafted to native root stocks. Root stocks are chosen for hardiness and soil tolerance and the grafted stock produces the fruit desired. Trees grown form seeds as you seem to want to do may not grow as well as one having a root stock more suited to the soil or tolerable to variable soil conditions.

best time to prune a dwarf Bing and a black Tarrant cherry tree?
jane r on May 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A year after planting your Cherry Tree, prune your tree in the winter. Shape the tree to encourage horizontal branch growth with space between branches. Prune once a year as necessary to remove weak, drooping branches. These are usually poor fruit bearing branches and removing them will encourage positive air flow and healthy growth. Also make sure light can penetrate the center of the canopy.
Does the Mature Height and Width shown in product details reflect the dwarf size after pruning? Or will this be smaller? Wondering how big the tree will be mature.
Shelly on Apr 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a semi dwarf tree size without pruning.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
