New to this, I received these in mail and they do not look like any that I have seen pictures of. Are they worth planting

what is it? looks like a bare root plant, put it in the ground as soon as possible. in my opinion its getting kind of late in the year for planting bare root trees unless your in the north where everything is still in dormancy
don't let it dry out, maybe it will wake up and start growing

I think this is a bare root tree?  The answer is a definite yes.  I have ship mast black locust I received when they were six inches tall, literally little tiny sticks.  They're 6 ft tall now.

Susan,

I have planted bare root stock like that to little effect.  That being said, what do you have to lose?  I would say stick that stick in the ground.  The worst that can possibly happen is—nothing.

Generally when I order root stock I like it to be moist.  I have found that companies that sell dry root stock to be less than reputable.

But that is my experience and my thoughts.  By all means, you do what is right for you.

Eric

Sure, stick em in the ground.  I'm guessing they'll do just fine.  What's the worst that could happen?
