Shipping is free, except to some of the western states.
When you will get your tree depends on your climate. We ship all plants during two windows:
Spring: February - Mid-May
Fall: Early October - December 1st
We ship by U.S. Priority Mail, which includes confirmation of delivery and $100 insurance for any major damage to the plant. Priority Mail delivery to most areas takes 2 to 3 days. We may use UPS on large orders. Items are only shipped on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for delivery between Wednesday and Saturday.
Occasionally, extreme weather delays our shipping. In the event it does we will let you know.
In the rare case that your plant arrives damaged do the following: Take a few photos of the damage and the box, save the box (30 days), and email us. We will send you a replacement tree and file a USPS insurance claim on your behalf.
We ship nursery items beginning February to Mid-May. Due to risk from heat exposure and loss of water due to intense transpiration we choose not to ship in the summer months. Some nurseries will ship plants during this time period, but we have found that for us it is not worth the risk - even if we get them to you, the odds of a successful planting are not good.
Fall shipping begins in early October and continues until December 1st. We can ship trees when the weather is cold more easily to southern climates that northern climates, so at the time of your order we will provide you will advice if you are beyond the shipping window.
There is a shipping charge for WA, OR, CA, NV, AZ, UT, WY, ID, MT, CO, NM, AK, and we don't ship to Hawaii.
