    Decent, but shipped too late

    Trees were alive when the arrived. Looked pretty good. I ordered 2 Beech and 3 other trees. The beech were the best of the bunch. The main issue is they were delivered after the ground froze. Don’t really have high hopes because of that.

    Beech tree

    Tree arrived in great condition with small buds in the trunk. Leafed out shortly after being planted but seemed to struggle after a couple months. Hoping it will continue to thrive next spring. I plan to order more beech trees as I am happy with the condition the trees arrive in.

    Convenient, good product

    Ordering online was a breeze and the prices were awesome. The product came neatly and efficiently packaged. We planted the saplings 5 days ago, so I can’t speak for their success thus far, but given the quality of the saplings, there shouldn’t be any issues. The Tree Company generously threw in a sample tree which we graciously planted! We definitely recommend this company to anyone anywhere (we are located in Georgia).
