I'm quite happy Review by EK
I ordered two of these very late in the Spring 2014 planting season.

The trees arrived 10 days later well packaged and in excellent condition. They appeared to be essentially bare root packed in a fiber bag with lots of very damp mulch and then wrapped with plastic.

I got one in the ground this morning and put the other in a nursery bed.
American Beech Review by Paul Stratton
Received my tree on September 8 2011 and it arrived in great shape. Was impressed with the packaging and how well the tree shipped . Wish I was off work tomorrow to plant early but will have to wait after work. Thanks for a great plant to start off with and a change to have a great tree in the future
