Customer Reviews & Photos
So far so good
First time buying from this company. All went well on that end. Shipping was prompt package received good shape trees were alive when put in the ground late fall in Central PA. I am in zone 6 which is now Zone 7, and have struggled with Quakers in my yard. All have been bare root and none have survived. This is the first online container attempt. I planted three Aspen in containers from local Nursery 2 years ago at clients house and they are still doing very well. I have high hopes for the container plan because the roots have not been severed. Tree had been topped to fit in the Box so it probably was closer to eight or nine feet tall maybe even 10. Good size tree looks healthy I have high hopes for this planting. Bought a package of root rocket but forgot to put it in the hole so will do so in the spring before green up. I did put some 10-10-10 in the dirt so it did get a little rooting help before going to sleep for winter
It's early but confidence is high.
Very good experience. The order was fulfilled promptly and the tree was received in good order.
Great service, quick shipment . Trees arrived well packaged and in great shape. The y replaced 2 that died over the winter. They are ready growing new leaves to replace those lost after planting. Will definitely be buying again from Fast Growing Trees.
Unsure Aspen ?
I have had my trees in the ground since early spring. One has died and has since been replaced. The trees have really not shown any growth.signs at all so the verdict is still to be determined. Hopefully they will pull through and make it ??

Quaking Aspen Trees
Delivery was great, plenty of instructions. Trees are planted & doing well.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: If you are experiencing extreme heat, place your potted tree in a well-shaded area, such as a garage, or plant it in a well-shaded area in your lawn.
When you're ready to plant, select a full sun location receiving 6+ hours of direct sun. The Quaking Aspen is quite adaptable to many soil types but require well-draining soil. Dig your hole two times the width and depth of the root system of the plant your are working with. Hold the tree straight as you begin back filling the hole with your gardening/native soil mixture. Once the hole has been completely filled, water the area to settle the soil and then mulch to help keep weeds and grass.
2. Watering: During the first year, make sure your tree gets water during extended dry spells, particularly in the summer months. Drooping leaves are a sign of both over or under watering, so take great care of your tree. Generally, watering once weekly should be fine.
3. Fertilizing: Use 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 fertilizer formula. Avoid fertilizing the tree directly. Instead, fertilize the tree’s soil.
