I purchased the bare root Crabapple tree a month ago and I am pleased with the purchased. The Tree arrived well packaged and I followed the directions for planting it. The tree already has foliage and growing already. Can't wait for it to be fully grown and I am glad I am helping the environment in the process. Wish I could buy a lot of tress to plant!

I bought it a month ago. The roots were well wrapped with straws when I get it.I removed the straws and soaked the roots in water overnight.The next day I bought some potting mix and planted it in a pot. After 2.5 week , it began sprouting. I will replant it after 2 weeks.Only problem is the sprouts are growing from the bottom. Tips: I think it better to plant in a pot first and not place it bright sunlights.I bought it during the peak summer time. So I kept it in a place where it get evening sunlights.Also I placed a plastic bag inside the pot before filling potting mix so that it’s easy to take out the tree when replanting into soil.

Looks like they killed a bunch of nice trees by sawing them off at the base, wrapping in wet straw and shoving into a box. Result, dead tree. Very, very sad. I bought 16 trees, all the same. Trees can be bought online, this seller seems to deliberately kill trees to send them. Things to bury, not things to plant. Save yourself the heartache.

It took about 3 weeks to come. When I pulled it out of the box I was a little disappointed because the tree looked like a switch. After planting it in a pot with potting soil it began to sprout leaves. I planted it in the ground today! I am pleased with the purchase but I was skeptical at first!

The trees are basically sticks. We planted them a couple of weeks ago according to the instructions with good soil, fertilizer, and mulch, but so far they are not showing signs of life. Hopefully when the weather warms up, leaves will start to come out and we can update our review.

I was a little surprised by how small the "stick" was that I received. I planted it the day after I got it and saw signs of life within 5 days and had leaves developing in less than 2 weeks. Super healthy plant!
