    Great condition

    Posted by Alex on Nov 21st 2023

    I had previously ordered these earlier in the season. The plants were in neither good nor bad condition. My late-season order looked fantastic, they were in great condition. I promise to leave some for others next year!! :)

    Plants in OK Condition

    Posted by Alex on Oct 3rd 2023

    The plants were in OK condition. There was substantial browning of leaves. It was clear the shipping had done a number on them, possibly declining before shipment. Either way, all got in the ground quickly and 3 of 5 still have some green leaves after being in the ground for a couple of weeks. I think all will be fine this time next year.

    I was so excited to see the dwarf chinquapin oak back in stock and jumped at the chance to purchase. The tree that arrived was sturdy, healthy, and well packaged. I would definitely buy from Mail Order Natives again!

    The Plants Were in Great Condition

    Posted by Nicole S. on Dec 1st 2022

    The saplings arrived quickly and were well packaged. There were no broken branches or stems. The root systems were very healthy for their size and the planting medium was moist. The saplings themselves were in great condition, the buds were turgid and firm.

    Healthy Trees

    Posted by Anthony Marinello on Apr 12th 2022

    This species is only available from two online resources (that I've found) and I was pleasantly surprised by how healthy and vigorous your trees were. The other nursery is a large commercial grower in the midwest and, although the pot-size is a little smaller on your plants, the plants themselves appear much healthier.

    Carya ovata Shagbark Hickory, Ptelea trifoliata Hoptree, Quercus prinoides Dwarf Chinquapin Oak

    Posted by Stephanie L Rahn on Jul 21st 2018

    I bought 3 different types of trees - 1 Hickory, 2 Oaks, and 2 Hoptrees. They arrived quickly - in excellent condition, very good size with healthy stems and green leaves, and carefully packed in containers with moist soil on the roots. All have been in the ground for a while now and all are growing well. I will definitely order more next year. Thank you!
