Exceptionally pleased!

I ordered 42 of these trees. I was very impressed with the quality of all of them and how well they were packaged. So far they all look healthy! Very very happy with this purchase.

Great deal

Very happy little trees. Two of my buch had root balls, all the rest were ready to be planted, only one didn't want to come out of the temporary pot. I was a little surprised how they were packaged. The trees seemed moist and fresh when unboxed and out of the plastic bag. I can't wait to see them filling in the gaps over the next few years.

These trees were what they said they were, I didn’t realize at my local big box store sold the exact same thing for 1/2 the price.
