Red sunset

Delivery was fast and very well packaged. I just hope the roots get established and the tree grows

Sunset Maple Tree

So far, so good. It's still a baby and is bent over at the top, about 90 degrees, but I have been assured that it will straighten up in the next few weeks. I hope to see some color this season but it will most likely be next year.

Maple Tree

The red sunset maple tree arrived in good shape on May 7th. I planted it immediately and during the past several weeks it has put out lots of new leaves and grown 6 inches. I'm going to buy some more soon.

Very satisfied

Had never ordered trees on line before, and was a bit skeptical. Ordered 4 trees...a Cleveland Pear, 2 Autumn Blaze Maple, and a Red Sunset Maple. The first 3 arrived within a week, and are doing great. They quickly budded out and are covered in leaves. The Red Sunset arrived a week or more later, and apparently came from the Sacramento, CA area according to the tracking. Has been over 2 weeks now since planting, and is now budding out with leaves. Very happy with these trees. They appear very healthy and should be beautiful.

I absolutely love the trees we ordered and was so amazed at how beautiful they were when they arrived. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone to order from and would definitely order again.
