    Received in Excellent Condition

    I was very pleased with my shipment. It was wrapped and the roots were kept moist. The roots had no visible damage of being trimmed. The trees were shipped in a hard cardboard box to prevent damage with handling. I planted them in the ground the same day that I received them and will see how they do this spring.

    My first time ordering

    The trees I received ( sycamore and osage orange) both were much larger than expected and the root system was excellent. Also the three free shrubs were a very pleasant surprise.
