So far so good. The

So far so good. The tree has been in the ground for about 2 weeks. It's lost a few leaves but has begun to sprout new ones. It looks very healthy. Time will tell, but right now I'm very pleased!

Healthy, Great Condition

Again, I am still shocked that I could order trees online - as was the FedEx guy. Two trees arrived in the same box and were healthy and looked to be in great condition. They arrived with healthy branches and leaves. I planted them a day after they arrived and they are doing very well! I purchased the tallest trees available, which I believe is between 5 to 6 feet. After planting them, I decided to go back outside and remove some of the lower branches so that the nutrients could go to the rest of the tree and help them to get stronger faster. The pictures I attached are of the trees with all of their branches from when they arrived.
