    Little concerned about one of the tree’s root system. All it had was tap root. The other had a better root system but nothing like the Oconee that I received. I hope that the tap one will take.

    Root system appears well developed and healthy. Already prepped as directed (nice clear instructions provided) and transplanted. Looking forward to watching it come out of dormancy and resume its growth.
