I now have 2 trees and 1 shrub. Love the colors of the leaves. Definitely recommend. Well packed and arrived ready to plant
Delivery was quick and my plant arrived in Excellent condition.
Ordered a 2-3 ft sapling got a 6ft tree
I can’t really complain. But the sapling I ordered came as a 6ft tree. I got more than what I paid for. But I could not use it for the tree planting ceremony I had imagined. A 6ft foot sapling would not fit on a table for the symbolic ceremony. Beautiful tree, well packaged, delivered on time, but it was larger than expected.
