Does Not Ship To:
Combination orders: Orders containing a mix of bare root plants and potted plants will all ship together. If you have questions about shipping please contact us and we will do our best to assist you.
Bare root orders only: Bare root trees have to be dormant in order to be shipped. We will begin shipping directly after they are harvested. If everything goes according to schedule, bare root shipping will begin the last week in January.
We currently cannot ship to the following states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or US territories. We cannot ship trees internationally.
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) 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.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. 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.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Truly happy I got the Live Oak tree replaced after I received one that was withering and dying. The Crabapple that came with it came in good conditions. Don’t know what would have happened to it, but happy I got another one in great condition. I have planted it and has taken on. Growing and has established itself.
After 2 weeks the live oak is doing fine. It was actually 2-3 ft. bigger that specifications (no complains), at least 7 ft. high. It came fast and well packed, a few small branches broke during shipping, nothing serious that could affect the health of the tree I think . Just on time for the rainy season, the transplant was a success.
This tree was WAAAAYYY bigger than I expected! Great price and I like that it's not bare root, and transplants easier!
I purchased 6 oaks for my property almost a month ago. They were packaged well and nicely pruned. Two of the six have completely browned out, no green at all. I am following PMG advice to see if they can be revived.
Nice young trees delivered quickly in a healthy condition.
