I received 3 whips abt a month ago. The temperatures are 100 degrees average and dry as a bone (irrigating regularly) at 4500 ft. Every One of the whips, 3 wild Cherry and the 2 Black Walnuts has LEAVES! Don't know if they will make it through the winter but I am very pleased with Fox River Valley Nursery!

Wild Black Cherry arrived healthy as bare-root trees. Roots and were moist and the trunk appeared to be healthy. There were a LOT of roots, so the trees look like they will grow vigorously. Shipping packaging was done very well and the trees arrived safely.
