treesReview by Kristine - coventry, RI Posted on 2013-05-15 15:08:11
I just received my order of 12 trees. They are a very dark healthy green. They were packaged very good, all the trees look perfect.
My OrderReview by Willie - Bay Minette, AL Posted on 2013-04-20 07:49:01
When I ordered 15 of these trees, I really was not looking for much. However, when I received them, I was very impressed with them. They were so perfect (dark green)that I thought the trees were plastic. I broke a small piece off and realized the trees were real. They were no more than a foot long and I planted them immediately.
Arrived nicer than expectedReview by Tammy - Forney, TX Posted on 2013-03-05 14:02:33
I expected a twig with a few roots when I ordered these. To my surprise they were a foot tall with a very nice root system in a 4" pot. I planted immediately when they arrived. No brown foliage were on any of the 12 I ordered. Will submit a new review in a year on how they did!
