    This tree arrived in good shape with a large and well-developed root system. I put it in a pot to hold it until the weather improved enough to plant it.

    Plants arrived in great shape and have been growing well in spite of spotted lantern fly nymphs in our yard. It doesn’t appear they are trying to eat them but we sprayed near them, just in case. Looking forward to them blooming next year!

    Impressed with the root systems on all three trees. Immediately potted them in 5 gal bucket and watered them well. We will plant them at our farm in about three weeks. Hopefully they will bud out.

    This Native tree is not common to the landscape- and that needs to change! A perfect understory tree that will make all the pollinators happy!

    The two seedlings I ordered had fantastic-looking roots. It will be my fault if these trees somehow don’t make it.
