If you need an order shipped as soon as possible, please place your order first and ask questions later…by getting your order in, we’ll be able to get your order into the shipping schedule more quickly
Please check below for answers to common questions, and also check our planting and care instructions, our shipping info page, our pricing info page, our before you order page, or our Evergreen Tree Buyer’s Guide.
The Best Way: Email
Please use the contact form below. We’re pretty quick responding to emails, even during our busy spring shipping season [answering emails late into the night] and prefer that you contact us this way because we can provide you with both helpful links and well thought out answers to the really tough questions [as opposed to “Hmmm, I’ll have to call you back about that”]. For those tough ones we refer to Rick’s Dad [Bob], a retired professional nurseryman with over 30 years experience, and then pass that wisdom on to you.
Urgent Question? Send a Text Message
Text messaging is best for fast answers to short, urgent questions…if you have long or difficult questions, then email is the better way to go…since we can provide more detailed answers and links to helpful web pages. You can send Rick a text at 803-265-7533 [no phone calls please!] from 8am-10pm, including evenings and weekends, and get a very quick reply.
No Orders By Phone
We are a weird combination of tree & internet people, we work tirelessly on our highly secure and accurate web site, and answer emails in a fairly prompt time frame. For the sake of accuracy and our own sanity, we do not take orders by phone…just getting someone on the phone became so notoriously difficult during the busy shipping season that we gave up. This is not a large corporation, and therefore we have neither an expensive phone system nor a secretary, and are crazy busy in spring and fall. Please use the form above and Rick will reply within 24 hours on most days. If ordering online gives you the creeps, there are plenty of old school tree nurseries who would love to take your call. 🙂
Question about availability?
If it’s marked as sold out, we can’t ship it right now, but we may be able to ship it to you later in the year. We post future availability information on the page of each sold out tree species/size, and we also send announcements via our unobtrusive email list.
Questions about sizes?
Sizes are listed next to each tree, and refer to above ground height (in other words, measured height does not include roots). Note that if you order now but choose a later ship date, that may affect the size of your trees…here’s why >>
Do we have a printed catalog?
We avoid the high cost of printing and mailing full color catalogs so we can keep our prices as low as possible for you. Besides, our availability may change weekly during the spring and fall shipping seasons, so a printed catalog would become outdated before it even hits your mailbox.
Where are we located?
We pack and ship your trees in the middle of nursery country, in the small city of Grand Haven, MI [a.k.a. Coast Guard City USA!]. Our evergreen trees are field grown in nearby Hudsonville, Allendale and West Olive. Our mailing address is:
PO Box 15
Grand Haven, MI 49417
Wedding Gifts: what trees are best?
We get questions about giving trees as wedding gifts fairly often, and have set up a wedding tree page
