    Quaking aspens

    I couldn’t believe how well these trees were packaged. After being in the ground for only a couple days the leaves are already starting to bloom. I will most definitely be placing another order with the tree store.

    I always wanted a Aspen tree here in NC. It came in a box and the roots were in a plastic bag that kept the moisture on the roots during travel. I planted it in the yard and its now starting to put on leaves. Very healthy looking little tree. I highly recommend!

    Just received my trees. Great packaging with clear instructions on how to get them started. I’ll certainly be returning for other trees.

    Buy with confidence. The Tree Store is serious in business. I received two healthy aspen trees, one for free since I had a minor issue with shipping the first tree. I highly recommend them.

    Good product, bad timing

    Posted by Hans Jostlein on 12/30/17

    The tree company sent us the two Aspen saplings, plus an extra crab apple. The saplings look like there are in excellent health, and the packaging was perfect. We were taken aback by the timing. I need to grow the saplings to a 6 ft height to avoid deer damage. I do that by planting them in buckets (with drain holes), which I set in soil for a couple of years. Even though I had ordered them in summer, they came at the end of December when the ground was hard frozen. I had to buy top soil, thaw it out, and plant the saplings. Rather than determining themselves when to send the saplings, the tree company could ask customers when to ship.
