Roots appeared to be pruned off
3rd tree from same vendor with very few roots, 97% of roots appear to be pruned off, 6 major roots cut cleanly. Limbs obviously must be pruned for shipment, I've ordered many trees on-line with others that had limbs pruned, no problems. 2 other trees from this company also dead, they appeared to have ALL roots pruned off, at least this one had a few small ones left, see photo. But this was the ONLY one of the three with any roots. Cutting roots is a deadly practice for trees.
    Was very dry upon arrival.
    Received the tree just fine and pretty fast. I planted it in a well prepared hole, but it isn't looking very well. I don't know if it's going to live. It was very, very bare root and dry upon arrival. I wish it had been packed a little better so it hadn't dried out so much. if it lives I'll post again.

    The Dolgo Crabapple already had leaves although those died, replaced by other leaves and I am truly hopeful that it will endure its first harsh summer. For the moment, it looks great and shows great potential. However, it was a nail biter initially because the crabapple took a long time to get to me; delivery was slow and for a lot of the time, there was no movement, other than saying that the label was created. I thought that I was going to be told that there weren't any crabapple trees available. But, once it was shipped, it didn't take long to get to me.
