Journal August 2, 2013

To replace my confiscated Trylie tree I ordered an Arbosana olive tree from a small operation in Georgia.  The total cost of the tree was ten dollars, which included shipping.  Truthfully, I did not expect much of a tree for ten dollars; as I figured it was about a five dollar tree and five dollars for shipping.

UPS has already delivered the tree and I am amazed at the quality and service.  The tree was packaged in a carton obviously custom made for shipping these trees and it was protected with bubble wrap.

As for the tree itself, it is growing vigerously, well rooted and large enough to yield a pre-bonsai and two cuttings.
