Did the saplings arrive? Please tell us size, types of trees, and how you planted them.

Hello, So sorry for the late response I just noticed this question. The seedlings did arrive. I know the Arbor Day Foundation is doing their best but I would go to a nursery in the future for trees, boxwoods, etc. I can not wait for spring to arrive. New Jersey winters are so long ..We don't see the sun hear til April...

Sounds like yours was as pathetic as the ones I got! If they don't live, send them an email for replacements...I did! But I still just got tiny little sticks!

And this is a tough winter everywhere.
I hope you protected your sticks from the heavy snows and winds and cold. If half prosper, you're ahead.

I am not sure what anyone would expect when they send away for 10 trees for $10.00 but I did not expect to get, via mail order, full grown trees, or even saplings. Rooted twigs would be about what I would expect and that is what I got.


The sign of a good gardener is not a green thumb, it is brown knees.

That's fine if the "twigs" have enough roots to survive. The ones I got did not!
And if someone is advertising them, I expect to at least get something that will live! "Twigs" I can deal with, but dead twigs are a waste of both their time & mine!

ETA...it also makes me NOT want to support their cause!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
