Customer Testimonials

I would like to submit a rating of "EXCELLENT" for the knowledgeable customer service and for the beautiful tree I received! To begin, I placed a call to Sooner concerning questions on my intended purchase of a Snow Fountain Cherry Tree. He was incredibly helpful in offering suggestions for my tree choices, and he sent me pictures to facilitate my selection! My tree arrived as stated in healthy condition with the needed planting instructions and fertilizer.
