All bare rooted trees are freshly dug in the spring, while the trees are in a dormant stage and properly stored until shipping or pick up.
We only ship trees in the spring. Bare rooted nursery stock are shipped April through mid-May. Pick up orders will be arranged at time of order. All nursery stock is packaged with shredded damp newspaper in a waterproof container. We use shredded newspaper, because it holds the moisture best and the ink acts as a sterilizer for the roots. The newspaper can be used as a mulch by the customer around the trees. In some cases with extra-large deciduous trees they may have to be bent to fit into the shipping container. As the trees are dormant this will not do any harm to the trees. Upon arrival, simply straighten the tree out. Follow our Planting and Cultural Requirement section.

Nursery stock is guaranteed to be alive and well upon leaving the nursery. This is how it works: (1) In Canada, all trees are visibly inspected by myself before shipping. (2) For shipment to United States, a phytosanitary certificate is required. To obtain a certificate, the trees must be inspected by a CFIA inspector for health, diseases, etc.at my location before issuing the certificate (they must be shipped immediately)... If the trees fail to put on new growth for the first year then we will replace these at no charge for the next growing season. To be eligible for replacement, please do not contact me until after the end of August.
For advance mail orders, we require a full payment with the order.
Payment is accepted by either personal or business cheque, money order, bank draft or cash,
A Phytosanitary certificate issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is required for all shipments outside of Canada. The cost for this certificate is $15.00 per order. See order form.
