California and Oregon State Quarantines

We cannot ship some of our evergreen trees to CA and OR due to state quarantines on the following:

• Soil import restrictions, which means we cannot ship evergreen plug seedlings or evergreen plug transplants to CA or OR
• Pine Shoot Beetle quarantine, which means we cannot ship any species of Pine [Austrian, Ponderosa, Red, White] of any size to CA or OR
• Eastern Red Cedar / Juniperus virginiana quarantine, which plays host to Cedar Apple Rust

Any non-native insect, disease, fungus, etc. which could catch a ride in a plane or truck over the Rocky Mountains [a natural barrier for these nasty things] could damage California and Oregon’s huge agriculture industries. So even though our trees are thoroughly inspected against these things, CA/OR state law will not allow it.

However, we can ship bareroot evergreen seedlings and bareroot evergreen transplants, but be sure to pay attention to the zones listed for each species. Most of what we sell cannot survive in California, which is predominantly zones 8/9/10, meaning your choices are very limited…at least at our nursery. Buy local!
