What to expect next:

  • After receipt of your order we will deliver trees within several weeks (no longer than 4 weeks). Holes do not need to be dug prior to delivery, but to avoid trees staying in pots for an extended period this will also give you adequate time for any site preparations including removal of tree stumps, other plants, etc.  To arrange for free utility location services (blue stake marking), dial 811 at least 72 business hours prior to digging.
  • Trees will be delivered directly to your home or business address as indicated on your order (you do not have to be present for delivery) or,
  • Consider organizing with your neighbors to submit orders around the same time and request a group delivery.  We can deliver to a pre-arranged location for a group, provide a tree planting demonstration, loan you tools and refer you to volunteer urban foresters who can assist your group on planting day.
