Customer Reviews & Photos

This is my second purchase form fast growing trees.com...both trees are extremely healthy & growing like crazy...I couldn`t be happier!!! They have varieties no one has in Portland! Buy with confidence!
We are extremely happy with this tree
I ordered this tree last year and planted it in July in a location that gets about 8 hours of direct sun a day. We are in the Northernmost part of zone 7 and we have had a very rainy year this year. The tree has grown 2 feet- no exaggeration. It’s in pretty much ideal conditions getting so much sun and rainwater regularly but we can’t believe how well it’s doing. We also had some flowers on it in the Spring, not many but a few which is surprising for a first year tree. I did fertilize it in the Spring and sprinkled on a systematic insecticide.
Well, it arrived looking sad.
Well, it arrived looking sad. I’m nursing it back slowly. The Soux crepe myrtle is dying. Arrived with dead leaves and doesn’t look like it’s going to survive. I would like a refund or new one.
I purchased 3 of these trees in September. They were small but in great shape. It is now June and two of them have already grown 2 feet! The other one would have, but my 120lb pups were using it as a chewing stick for a while there. Still, it's hanging in and very healthy! Once the bark repairs itself, I know it'll shoot up like the other two. None of them blossomed in the Spring, but that's okay! I know they were more focused on establishing themselves than looking pretty. I am so happy I bought these trees. I can't wait to see them in all their glory! I would attach a picture but the form doesn't give me an option to do so.
