When do I pick up trees?
Trees usually are available the first week of April. When orders are available and ready to be picked up we call to schedule a time for pick up. We try to give as much notice as we can. The sooner they are planted the better.
How Do I place an order?
First make a list of what you are interested in. You can either email us a list or call us directly. We will book the order and let you know the availability at that time. We always recommend to book early to guarantee we will have exactly what you want. Once the order is confirmed, mail a 25% down payment to hold the order. We will give you a rough idea when we will be calling to set the time for you to pick up your order. Please remember Mother Nature plays a part in this process.
Do you take special orders?
If you don’t see something you are looking for, email or call we may be able to find it for you. Please allow us a little lead time to find exactly what you need. Special orders require 100% payment on the order.
When is the best time to order?
We take orders year round. We also know that most people don't think about trees until spring. We suggest the earlier you order, the better. Some of our transplants are in limited supply, so to guarantee them, it's good to order in Dec, Jan, Feb.
How do I pay for Trees?
We accept cash or checks. We like to keep our costs down and pass the savings on to you.
Call us anytime we will gladly let you know right away what we have available.
When is the best time to plant?
We suggest planting as soon as you can get a shovel into the ground. It pays to get them in early and let, them come out of dormancy and take advantage of the spring soil moisture.
What type of guarantee is provided?
All trees and transplants are refrigerated and kept dormant until you pick them up, but there are no survival rate guarantees.
We have never planted transplants, how hard is it?
We try to make it as easy as we can. The best way is to plan ahead, know where you want them then grab a shovel or a tree spade and start planting. No need to add soil fertilizer etc. 20 trees per hour is an average planting rate.
Why bare root instead of potted trees?
Bare root is an inexpensive way to plant trees. The pot, labor and soil just add to your costs. We try to give you the best value for your dollar.
Why transplants instead of seedlings?
Seedlings are less than 2 years old and are usually around 6-8” high. Transplants are 2 years older. The seedlings do not have the root system the transplants have which increase the survival rate of the transplants. The bigger, stronger, more developed transplants have a chance to get ahead of the weeds and you can appreciate your work immediately.
