I had anticipated a shorter turnaround instead of waiting over a month. I even stopped my payment but the next day my trees arrived so I removed that request. I’ll start sooner next time according to my planting period.
Upon receipt, looks good. Great price for a 4-5' tree. Was packed and shipped really well--appears to have survived an over 16 day shipping time (USPS's fault, not Green Thumbs') and is not only alive but retained a little bit of moisture in the packaging after all that time. Surprised and impressed. Tree looks to be in good condition overall. Hoping for the best long term.
Bought a 4 - 5ft catalpa tree online. Simple enough to order. It was delivered in fine shape. Planted November 1st. Wait until spring to see how it does.
