  1. Christie

    We are very happy with our purchase of 4 Norway Spruce. We ordered size 2 to 3 foot and they arrived very healthy and they were already filled out. They looked much better than expected and growing nicely. We also ordered some other trees and are very satisfied with Coldstream!

  2. Brian Schroeder

    Ordered the 3 foot norway spruce trees. Packed well, and looked good. We had a couple not make it but were all pretty nice trees. Would order from Coldstream again.

    The price these trees are the best deal on the market. They’re beautiful, very healthy, and I was amazed how big they are. What a great deal.

  6. Jared Anderson

    Got 100 3-4’ trees. All were dark green and bushy with good roots. I just got them in the ground and after handling them all day they felt springy and full of life. Nice sturdy little trees, I’m very happy with them.

    We ordered 18 norway spruce 2-3 ft. size. At first we were a little surprised by the small box they arrived in. However, all 18 trees were in fabulous shape, looked healthy, and their root systems look great. We soaked the roots for a half hour in a bucket of water before planting. They all went in great, and we are hoping for the best. Overall a very positive experience from order to receipt of shipment from Cold Stream Farm. thanks so much!
