Wrapped in plastic with mildew on a roots
I have purchased a lot of trees and plants online including Home Depot website and never ever they would come wrapped in plastic, always magazines or something organic that allow air circulation. Plants ordered online always have either few leaves or good rooting system or both. People please stop chopping everything off the tree including all the roots and wrapping what is left from roots in plastic. 1 star because I can’t return it and planted it with no hope it will survive, planing on watering every night for at least 2 weeks to give a “stick” a chance to survive

    The tree arrived in the box fine. There was no new growth on the tree. I planted the tree and have been tending to it for 2 weeks. I still don't see any new growth, so I’m beginning to wonder if the tree is dead? If I happen to see new growth anytime soon I will comment below.

    I ordered an Eastern Redbud barefoot tree. It arrived packaged securely and with soil to keep it alive and healthy during transport. I've planted it and it is growing strongly. I can't wait to see the blooms next year. I'm very pleased with the service and I will use them again for my next tree purchases. I highly recommend them.

    The tree has never sprouted new growth. I followed all the instructions, but this is a dead twig planted in our yard. We planted 2 other trees at the same time, both of those have done very well.

      Purchased two trees online because I don't have a truck to transport trees. However what arrived were two bare root sticks that I could easily have brought in my car from the store. Then - no fault of Home Depot or the Nursery but shipping was delayed so it took over 2 weeks to reach me and thus these poor trees sat in a dark box without sun/water. I tried to revive them by leaving them in water for hours as instructed and then planting them. After 2+ weeks in the ground one tree has signs of life with tiny buds and a few flowers the other looks completely lifeless so now after waiting over a month to 1) get them to me 2) plant and hope they make it - I now get to pull the one back out of the ground find the paperwork and then drive the dead stick back to the store for a refund. My whole goal was to have 2 beautiful young trees in Spring and now I have 1 partially bloomed stick in the ground. :-(

      I am disappointed. After several weeks of planting and watering, they still just look like sticks in the ground.

      Most part of the tree died, only some new branches coming from the root gave me little bit hope.
