It tool 11 days from Washington State, and the trees had the roots all cut off. I would recommend not using raintree nursery for anything ever. Finding perry scions has been very difficult and nobody has extra perry pears for sale. That why I went will them, the trees are terrible and have the roots cut off. What a miserable company.

So are you saying that you are happy, or unhappy with Raintree?

😉  just kidding, you made it very clear.

I don't know why some nurseries are so brutal on the roots.  The trees you got were probably purchased and resold.

I would be happy to buy from the original source if possible. Perry pears are hard to find.

Thanks for the heads up, cmullin.

They used to be a very reputable company.

Have you looked into getting a refund?

I no longer buy from Raintree.  The last time that I ordered from them, almost everything failed to grow; and it was a large order with many different plants and trees.  The Cosmic Crisp apple tree was excellent; but all others weren't - asparagus failed to grow, a bundle of black walnut seedlings never broke dormancy, two American chestnuts grew feebly (with one dying quickly), for example.  The charge for shipping to replace everything that failed to grow would have cost more than the plants themselves, so I declined that option.  Raintree, to their (partial) credit, did give me a refund for most (but not all) of what didn't grow.  

Maybe Raintree was having an "off" season, and my experience wasn't normal for them.  With so many nice nurseries nearby, though, I don't feel the need to try them again.
