I bought this tree, a bare root twig, from this company in 1962 and planted it in my parent's yard in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I left Michigan in 1970 and have never been back but thanks to Google maps I can see the results and they are quite lovely. Here is the link in which you can see the result on the left side of the photo. Be patient, it takes a little while to load. https://maps.google.com/maps?q=2648+Manchester+Road,+Ann+Arbor,+MI&hl=en&ll=42.249986,-83.713151&spn=0.000536,0.001013&sll=42.250073,-83.713456&layer=c&cbp=13,268.6,,0,0.01&cbll=42.249986,-83.713151&hnear=2648+Manchester+Rd,+Ann+Arbor,+Washtenaw,+Michigan+48104&t=h&z=21&panoid=jnFl-RWs9Z-HGn4qIo4dJA
