Transportation Methods

Our choice for shipping method is dependent upon your location and size of order. Most orders are shipped UPS. Large orders are shipped by motor freight. Most customers have their trees shipped commercially, but many prefer to arrange their own transportation. Such arrangements must be coordinated with us well in advance, and scheduled dates will be firm; otherwise the warranty will be void. Many customers are surprised by the size of our stock and don't have enough vehicle space. If you are a new customer, please call for information regarding space requirements for your order.


Shipping Date

Every effort will be made to ship your order at the time you specify; however we cannot guarantee a shipping date since adverse weather can effect our ability to dig trees. Most spring seasons we cannot start before April 15th. All shipments are made on a first-come, first-served basis (stock permitting) and require a pre-payment in full. Therefore, we strongly urge you to order early, pay the 25% deposit with your order and pay the balance due on time.


Packaging Charge

A nominal packaging materials charge will be added to each order.


Zone 6,7 & 8 Shipments

We strongly recommend the use of UPS 3-Day Select shipment or faster to Zones 6, 7 & 8. Guaranteed 3-day delivery eliminates the possibility of delayed delivery to distant destinations. The warranty will be void on orders shipped by regular UPS Ground service to zones 6, 7 & 8.
