    Default Wollemi Pine

    I recently purchased two Wollemi pine trees and had them shipped to me. The total cost including shipping was over 230 dollars. I am so frustrated right now because I only received one of the two trees that I was charged for and it had its top few inches broken off inside the box. I have emailed the vendor three times and called three times over the past two weeks and I have not received any kind of reply whatsoever. I can deal with counting/shipping errors and damaged goods but the complete lack of response is really starting to tick me off. My next step is to call my credit card company and have them reverse the charges. It's extra frustrating because I really like Wollemi pines and they are hard to find. Sorry to vent but I thought you guys would understand plant disappointment if anyone would.

    That is really quite inconsiderate of the vendor to not respond... even if only to acknowledge the issue and that they may be looking into it.... I'd probably call them one last time and advise them that you are planning on asking the credit card co. to reverse charges unless they call you straight away. Good luck... and nice to know the Aussie Pine is taking over various parts of the world

    Wonderful plants Wollemias. I got one last year. Don't worry about the broken tip, it is not a problem a new lead will take over.

    Thanks guys. I called the credit card company today and they will contact the merchant. If they can't get a response they will reverse the charges. I guess I'll have to find another merchant that has them in the US.

    Halloamey how is yours doing now? Have you tried to take cuttings of it? I'd like to try one as a bonsai someday.
