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.
First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Pecan trees need water and sun in order to thrive. Be sure to plant in deep, moist, and well-drained soil. During the tree's first growing season, be sure to water regularly, about a gallon of water a day, (though you do not need to water every day in order to accomplish this). Prune pecan trees in the winter, making sure to prune lower hanging branches to encourage upward and lateral growth.

Not terribly impressed

I wanted trees but only the bare root was available, so I gave it a try. Big mistake. We had just experienced a week of solid rain so I could not plant them directly in the ground. I attempted to place in buckets until the ground dried a little but was unsuccessful due to the size of the bare roots. They would not even fit in ten gallon pots due to their length and as a result none of my bare root saplings survived to be transplanted into the ground. Stick with their trees. They are great.

Ordered 4 trees bare root 3-4 ft.

Order was delivered fast. Trees appear very healthy with excellent root systems. They were all at the very minimum of the height description. If taller, prior to my pruning, I would have rated them 5 stars.


I ordered a couple of these bareroot Amling pecans about three years ago. The man I talked to on the phone was super helpful and knowledgeable and generous with his knowledge. The trees arrived in great shape and have done better than trees I paid twice the price for elsewhere. I couldn't be happier with my experience with Plantmegreen. Whether Amling will prove to be a good variety for my location remains to be seen. Bill Reid, the former extension pecan specialist with the awesome blog on northern pecans (continuing in retirement), suggested that my growing season on the western edge of the NC Piedmont might not be long enough to mature a crop of Amlings, but it seems otherwise like such a good variety for a no-spray yard tree that I wanted to try it anyway. I'd love to hear reports from anyone that has cropped this variety in more northerly areas like mine.


Great service,. very nice people. They kept me informed about my order and followed up after it arrived in great condition. Very good trees.

Pecan trees, bareroot

The pecan trees had leafed out when they arrived. I placed them in soil in the garage because the weather (freezing rain and sleet) outside was not conducive for planting. In the garage, the green leaves died. However, I did plant them outside a couple of days later, soaking the roots in water beforehand, but I am worried about their survival. I mulched them and am making sure they are watered. So, fingers crossed they make it!
