Fall shipping is weather dependent and will occur as soon as stock is safely dormant. Most seasons evergreens can be harvested and shipped by mid to late September. Early October for a few species such as cedar or hemlock. Most leafy deciduous species are shipped following harvest in November. If your fall order contains both evergreen and deciduous items and customer has not requested otherwise, they will be shipped together when the latest item is safe to harvest. If specific timing is requested, we will do our best to schedule and ship accordingly, but we will contact the customer for further instruction if the request cannot be met.
SPRING Tree and Shrub Shipping Info
Spring shipping begins in late February for southern states. Please indicate during checkout if you have specific timing requirements. We end Spring shipping late June.
Orders are scheduled for a climate zone appropriate time. DELAYS OCCUR if the product is spring harvested and our ground is frozen, or if the order is submitted or modified during the spring shipping season (generally at least a 4 week delay on late orders). Most seasons evergreens cannot be harvested before late March/early April. If specific timing is requested, we will do our best to schedule and ship accordingly, but we will contact the customer for further instruction if the request cannot be met.
