    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.
