High hopes
Reviewed By: kc (jackson, ca)
I was very excited to be able to purchase this 3-4' tree!!! BUT, when shipped, the newspaper dried out, as did the roots. I soaked it for 24 hrs like other said on this site, but it only leafed out on the bottom 4 inches, if that.

Great City Shade Tree
Reviewed By: Jane Burton (St. Louis, MO)
This is a lovely-shaped sturdy shade tree that is well suited for the city because of its size. Not a huge tree. 40 to 60 feet high, maybe 20 feet wide. Doesn't drop nuts or gum balls or other junk. Beautiful leaves, nice fall color. pretty gray bark.
