The Date and Time
If you place your order by 9pm EST your trees almost always ship that same day unless our shipping schedule is already full [happens often in Spring] or we determine that it will not arrive by Friday. In that event, we will postpone shipping to the following Monday. You may also order early to ensure availability, and request a later ship date in a follow up email shortly after placing your order. Please see our shipping page for more info.
 Your location
We cannot ship outside the Continental US, meaning we cannot ship to Hawaii, Alaska, Canada or Mexico. Although all of our plants have passed the Michigan Department of Agriculture inspections for pests and diseases, it is very expensive to obtain the additional pest and disease inspections required to ship live plants outside the lower 48 states of the US.

If you have your order shipped right away, the tree sizes as shown on our site should be accurate. However, if you postpone shipment for weeks or months, then our published tree sizes may no longer be accurate…here’s why >>
