We get our seedlings from only trusted and well respected quality nurseries. We do our best to bundle and handle them in a manner to protect them so they will grow well for you. We are not a “big box” store. Once the seedlings leave here we cannot guarantee their survivability. Many factors go into a tree surviving: soil type, moisture, not getting watered enough, drought, disease, pests, deer and other critters, planted wrong (roots cannot grow),below freezing temperatures , lawnmowers, etc.!

Thank you for planting trees!
