    The tree arrived in excellent condition - far bigger than I had expected. It was packed very well. The root system was perfect - the only problem was my ground was far too wet to start digging holes and planting (after a very cold, wet winter and loads of rain. So I potted it on and will place the pot where I hope to eventually plant it. I am extremely delighted with my purchase - loads of buds too so a lot of anticipation! Thank you Beechwood trees
