    Received this tree with several others that I intend to bonsai. Healthy tree with a great root system that I can prune and train.

    I’m leaving 4.5 stars because I still want to give it time to grow, but I will update to 5.0 if I can next year. That being said, I would and will purchase again from Food Forest Nursery.
    Plant arrived with three American Hazelnut trees. Similar to those, the roots were a little dry but I rehydrated them in some wet mulch. I planted the Kousa in mid-April. The tree was about 16” and a single stem. It started to produce some leaves about 2 weeks ago. I wrapped some chicken wire around it to protect it from pretty much everything. I’m hoping it goes well this year and I see decent growth. I would like to update next year on it if I can edit my review.
