    Little Tree

    Posted by Derek Moffett on 12/29/21

    Looking forward to this little guy getting bigger. Arrives in a thin box and is about 2'6" long total. I appreciated the service the Tree Store offered. They shipped it early at my request. Thanks!

    The tree arrived as promised in November. Dormant with good root mass. We followed the planting instructions and hope it gets growing well in the spring.

    The trees came packed very well with instructions on their care. After we planted them they took off growing. Very healthy trees and I can't wait for them to be full grown in all their beauty.

    Product was alive when received 2 days ago. I planted and have been watering. That's about as much of a review as I can give at this time.

    Trees arrived well packed, ready to go in the ground. Buds were present on arrival and became leaves shortly after being planted. Will order more trees due to the success I’ve had with my first order.

    Thornless Honey Locust

    Posted by Roy W, on 01/23/19

    I purchased a Thornless Honey Locust tree from the Tree Store and am thoroughly satisfied. It was sent in a dormant state with the roots in a well wrapped moisture sack. Also, the box it was sent in was sturdy enough to keep the small trunk from breaking. \ I panted the seedling immediately and am waiting for this little baby to wake up and grow. Also, the Tree Store sent along with the Honey Locust seedling 3 additional Red Dosier Dogwood seedlings as gifts. Right away, I got those babies planted in the back yard, too. Thanks Tree Store!
