Cape Fear / Desirable Pecan Tree 1 April 5, 2016
Reviewer: from Smithfield, NC United States  
I don't know which tree is which. There were two tags in the box but not on either tree. So I have a 50-50 chance of knowing. I am not sure how you measure the heigth of a tree. These were 7 ' from bottom of root to top. One tree, had 3 main roots that came into one root that had a big gash torn out. The total root was 1 1/2 foot. No small roots at all.

6-7' Cape Fear Pecan Tree March 17, 2015
Reviewer: John Palatinus from Knoxville, TN United States  
Looked good on arrival.  Trunk and roots were pruned prior to shipping so it won't arrive with a 6' trunk.

Healthy Trees Timely Delivery February 24, 2015
Reviewer: Karen Holbrook from Southport, NC United States  
My pecan trees arrived during the coldest week of the year.  They were nicely bundled in their shipping container and stayed there for about 5 days until the weather warmed enough for planting.  The pecan trees had been grafted to a sturdy root stock and looked very hardy.  The planting instructions were excellent.   We followed them to the letter and now are waiting for spring to bring the trees out of their winter sleep.

Crooked Pecan February 9, 2015
Reviewer: David Lee from Beulaville, NC United States  
The tree is mighty crooked. I'll have to tie it to a stake and try to straighten it out.
