Looks like two beech trees on the left?
Maybe a japanese maple far right?

Wild guess!

Oops, didn't think anybody would care about the actual plants names. But here you go from left to right.

Fagus 'Red Obelisk' aka 'Rohan Obelisk'
Fagus 'Mercedes'
Cornus 'Summer Gold'
Hydrangea 'Dharuma'

Thanks for the fine review Whaas.

There are a million internet companies and wether I am ordering air suspension parts or model trains or trees I figure the least I should do is check for reviews from reputable members of the appropriate forum.

Glad you posted; I decided to trust your impression & put in an order for a small tricolor beech. I'd been trying to think of a special tree to plant to commemorate the birth of a little girl 3-6-13, and I think for what I've got in mind this is a good choice. Hope they send a good one!

No doubt the best roots and soil media I've ever seen. Credit needs to be given where due.

Congrats on the new addition! One of life's most precious gifts.
I have another one on the way this summer. My daughter (almost 3) takes a liking to plants occasionally and points out a tree for each member in the family...including the cat and dog, lol.

Damn, is spring here yet? Its only cracked 40 degrees this month and won't see it again over the next 10 day forecast! Need at least 3 weeks to thaw and dry the soil yet.

Well, if they impress you and Arktrees (from another topic), they must be pretty darn good!

I ordered from them last fall, and the roots on what I got was great. Yes a bit more pricey, but allot of what they have your just not going to find otherwise anyway. Sometimes you get what you pay for, and that was the case with Broken Arrow for me. MUCH MUCH better than a certain online outfit that so many people rave about, that just don't #E$%$% cut it as far as I'm concerned. At this point I give them my complete recommendation.

And Jon, just because I expect them to hold up their end of the deal I'm suddenly difficult....... ;-)
