Plant Quick Guide
Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.
All four Shumard Oaks were very wilted when I opened them. Two have recovered but the other two have not and I will need to ask for a refund. The two trees that survived came from the same box while the two that did not came from the same second box. That leads me to believe that the second box must have been exposed to much more heat than the other, Mark B.
I have ordered over 10 trees from this company and they all came within 2 days of shipping, packaged great, and the trees were very healthy and big. I ordered the #5 Shumard and it was almost 6 ft, full of leaves, and just an overall beautiful healthy tree. I definitely recommend ordering from this company, you want regret it!
