Get your Quaking Aspen at TN Nursery
The little Quaken Aspen arrived bare of leaves as advertised, with a solid root ball and several 3' soon-to-be trunks. Although in a dormant stage, we planted it as instructed, fertilized, mulched, and put a chicken coop wire pen around the water well. It seems hardy and ready to root and leaf in the spring. Time will tell.
Excellent stock that has been planted in its new home. Excellent condition & service
Trees came in great condition and were actually taller than expected. The only reason it’s not 5 stars is because I made an error on the order and ordered the wrong height. Immediately contacted costumer support and was surprised to hear that they couldn’t cancel the order or change it for me.
Almost all the trees that I bought are doing well except two of them. The aspen poplar and the persimmon. I'm still waiting to see if any leaves are going to come out. These trees are still bare so I'm waiting to see if they are going to do as good as the other ones. So I'm pretty happy with the other trees.
They showed up looking rough, but currently are growing strong
