Are you saying they are illegally shipping trees to the USA.
Tom's post is dead-on. An acquaintance ordered a tree from them, it was DOA, but was replaced without a hassle. Expensive, but some of the stock they offer is very hard to find in the US.
I understand this is a photo of the replacement as delivered, which did survive...
Doesn't look as nice as the trees on their site
Baby birdies dude - cheapcheapcheapcheapcheapcheapcheapcheap. That and the illicit thrill of breaking the rules and getting something not available under more proper channels.
It amazes me that if someone digs up some tree on public or private property, people will jump down that person's throat if the person didn't get the proper permits or other permission.
On the other hand, there doesn't seem to be similar outrage when it comes to illegal imports which will do significantly more damage to our environment. I don't get it.
