    I had made a trip to the rock yard last week and on my return I saw a small sign on the roadside that said "Trees all kinds and a phone number". So I followed the arrow and came across this. Nothing is over $35.00.

    where in AL are you. how big of a selection do they have as far as varieties are concerned. Are they the grower or a middle man? Not knowing where you are do you think it would be worth wile to drive down there from Memphis or no?

    Those look like some small balls -- are they dug to nursery standards?

    I agree about the size of the balls, it appears with a quick ruler measurement on the computer screen that there is a 6 or 7 to one relationship between root ball and caliper size. I always went by 10 or 12 to one to dig trees up. The proof is if they guarentee them

    What are those lolipops? They must all be females, cause the have no balls! would have to agree that the ball size is rather small compared to the caliber of those trees. ;)
