I had ordered 2 bamboos, both are dead now. I had also ordered a Corrallinum Japanese maple, which did not have characteristic features of that specific cultivar. I did emailed the company to let them know that they sent the wrong one, 3 times... no answer. I want to mention that I am very familiar with corallinum maples, I had a beautiful specimen in a pot, and someone walked away with it. I am so sad about this... its been 3 years. I want to warn anyone considering buying fron Japanese Maples And Evergreens website. Consider other companies and be more safe about it.

PLEASE NEVER order from this company. They are terrible! I ordered 16 japanese maples from them and 11 of them were dead within the first month and the other five aren't looking good at all and I think they may also die. They sent me trees I didn't even order and didn't send me trees that I did order. I have sent over 20 emails and tried to call repeatedly with no response. I have sent them pictures and complained wanting my trees replaced and wanting the trees that I ordered that they didn't send me. I spent $318 that I basically just threw out the window. Their grafts are horrible a couple of the trees fell apart where the grafts were. They look like they used hot glue or something. It's amazing that they get any business at all. I feel sorry for the people who have been ripped of by these amateurs. I paid $318 for a bunch of kindling for my bonfires.

These positive comments must be employees because none of them are true to my experience with them. They are the total opposite.
I ordered 2 Japanese maples from these guys. They were both supposed to be 2 year grafts. One of them was OK, but a bit on the small side. the other one was a 10" high twig with the graft completely falling apart. I e-mailed them twice, they don't appear to have a phone number (I can certainly see why ). I got no response. I opened a claim on paypal but in order to get reimbursed I have to send the tree's back at my expense and HOPE to get paid for my return shipping from them. I seriously doubt that would happen. AVOID these amateurs and buy from only reputable sellers !!

Of the ten maples I ordered, one was dead when it arrived and one died within a few weeks. I tried numerous times to contact this company by phone as the contact email address they list on their website does not work. I have never received any response from them in spite of my pleading with them to at least return my call. I am very surprised as they claim to guarantee their products.
I just received what should have been a "Gold Rush" Dawn Redwood but instead it is a plain Dawn Redwood like the rest of the ones I have. I do have 1 "Gold Rush" Dawn Redwood growing and liked it so much that I decided to get another. I figured I would give this nursery a try because they were offering the tree through ioffer.com from "Oregon Nursery" for 29.90 with free shipping. I guess you can't trust a nursery that has to go by several aliases. The tree was nice and healthy but very disappointed in NOT getting a "GOLD RUSH" Dawn Redwood. Maybe they assumed I wouldn't figure it out.
I ordered two Japanese maples from this company and they were lost in shipping per the USPS tracking info I received. I forwarded that info to Japanese Maples and Evergreen company via the email address given on their website, but they NEVER responded to multiple emails from me requesting that they re-ship and that I would gladly pay again for shipping costs. NO response!!! Total ripoff.
I came across these guys on ioffer. I've paided for five trees, but only got four of them. One of the trees I actually received died. All but one arrived in poor condition. One tree showed up looking like a hack graft that they did the night before, with only one tiny little twig glued on. The one that was in good shape I didn't even buy. They accidentally sent me a coral bark maple, which arrived folded over in two small boxes taped together. I emailed them and insisted on paying for the tree. They gladly took the money. Then the next tree I paid for, a three foot Emperor I japanese maple, never came. I paid $19. The charge went through on my Visa, I checked. I tried repeatedly to contact them, but never got a response. I asked them to either refund my money or send me the tree. No response. Nothing. I will never buy anything from them again. The grafts are sloppy. But I guess that's why their trees are so cheap. You get what you pay for.
