Excited but yet let down April 19, 2016
Reviewer: Stella S from Durham , NC United States  
I was really excited about the fringe tree. Got the tree really quick. However, the tree arrived bare and small for a $40 tree.  I quickly putting the tree in soil and in shade. Hopefully, it will recover.  While I understand their pruning service, it was still a shock to see how sad the tree looks.  Unfortunately I found out afterward that my local nursery can get a larger tree for the same price. Oh well.
