It’s coming up to a year since I had the cedar guys plant over 170 feet ( 83 and 87 feet east / west side of property) I was nervous with such a huge commitment and cost but I followed the instructions of adding a soaker hose and mulch after planting. I planted in October so virtually little watering before winter. In the spring I watered occasionally and happy to say they are looking great. A little orange flagging is happening now with the fall which I read is normal. I had a few sad looking trees in the spring and as their warranty states they will come replace which they did. It was only 3 trees - considering they planted 170 I would say it was a complete success. Very happy with the crew. They left their number if I need to reach out anytime. Highly recommend.
