    Hi Gail,
    Say, this is a great idea from APS – and it’s free! I just paid $260 for a replacement tree that got trashed by the winter frost. THAT tree was only on our property for a little over a year and it cost $500!
    I can’t afford to keep doing this at these prices, but I can’t beat the price on the APS trees…
    Thanks for sharing!
