Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
Our McIntosh Apple Trees are more mature trees that have been trained to produce a branching structure. This requires an extra year of work for us, but the results you experienced will be dramatic. As a matter of fact, some of them are already producing apples in the nursery.

We are very happy with our MacIntosh tree so far. It seems to be happy to have a home here. Came a few weeks ago, and we planted within a day, the leaves exploded on the top as well as a few flowers... already have a few apples starting to grow!!!
1st tree was broken due to packing. Company gave quick response and replacement tree was here in a few days. Great service.
gift wes loved
I gave these to friend to start her orchard in South Dakota. she was really pleased with them.
I bought two of these last year and even spent the money on the rocket fertilizer and the 5-6 foot version. I followed the instructions exactly and was even given "premium" service because of the order size. When I called premium service I with questions I was told to check the website not give the step by step directions or help. Unlike the promise, these did not fruit the first year nor did they flower. The leaves on the trees where not in the greatest shape when they arrived and never recovered during. I am hopeful this year will yield a different result but very disappointed given the amount I spent.
We're so sorry to hear that your apple trees haven't done well! We're going to reach out to you right away to see how we can help!
Great tree from a great company. All my trees come from FGT and they will get more business from me in 2019. Another Mac Apple will be on the list again.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full sun and well-drained soil help your McIntosh Apple thrive, so select an area with both (6 hours of sunlight per day). Now that you have found your ideal planting location for the McIntosh Apple, there are some basic steps for planting the tree. Place your tree, tamp down the soil as you fill the hole to prevent air pockets, and water to settle. Finally, mulch to preserve moisture.
*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.
2. Watering: Your McIntosh Apple will benefit from a regular watering each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down - if it's dry here, it's time to water.
3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems. Weak, damaged or dead branches should also be removed.
