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.

Found in the wild along streams and in swampy soils, swamp white oak should be grown in full sun to partial shade on acid soils, showing severe chlorosis on alkaline soils. They tolerate soil compaction, drought and some salt exposure. They should be tried more often in urban areas. Swamp white oak grows best in full sun in moist to wet, deep, acidic soils. Development of a 2-layer root system allows it to grow well in areas that are flooded in spring but markedly dry in summer. Young trees of swamp white oak are tolerant of light shade but become more characteristic of full sun with maturity.
Our order of 4 oak trees (varied types) arrived in perfect condition. They had their leaves intact and no breakage. The timing was good and the packaging made it easy to get them in the ground. I recommend Plant Me Green.
Received my trees and they arrived quick and looked strong ... thanks for ensuring they were boxes properly for shipment.. now. I just watch them grow...
