    Do these Monkey Puzzles look healthy? Does the one on the right look like it has a broken root ball? Would you get one of these or skip?

    Thanks

    Skip. Too large, with not enough root ball, to make successful trees in the long term. Best planted as small seedlings which can establish a natural root system with a deep taproot when young.

    The one on the left in particular looks like it'll be dead within a year.
