You supplied and delivered as promised. Your shipping standards on larger orders is subpar concerning shrubs/ trees. I will 💯 percent acknowledge that you stand behind your product! But, what was delivered for many arborvitae’s was below 36””, thin and damaged. I have planted all 32 and will keep you posted. Moral of my experience is Great Plants is great to deal with, honors their product but their product is subpar as delivered.

Hello! We apologize that you received plants that are not up to our standards. As we try our best to provide exceptional service, some factors, like shipping and handling, are outside our control, and issues like this can sometimes happen. We take pride in the plants we grow and, as you mentioned, stand by our guarantee. As mentioned on our site, Arborvitae ship with an average height of 3' from floor to tip of the tree. We apologize if this was misleading. Happy Gardening!
