(This information applies to both membership trees and nursery orders.)
Please note that due to lengthy inspection times and other restrictions, we are unable to ship membership tree packages to Hawaii, the Territories, APOs, FPOs and countries other than the United States. In addition, some trees may be restricted by a state’s Department of Agriculture and cannot be shipped as requested. Your shipping address will be validated against these rules, and you will be notified of any necessary substitutions. Your trees, each 6 to 12 inches, will come with easy planting instructions, and will be shipped at the right time for planting in your area.
We have to wait for a couple of hard frosts so the trees go dormant and can be shipped safely. Trees can be planted until the ground is frozen solid. Fall shipments are made between November 1 and December 10.
Our trees can be planted during a broad range of weeks or months — from when the frost first leaves the ground through late spring. Spring shipments are made between February 26 and May 30.
(These are the 10 free trees you receive when you become a member.)
Your free trees are guaranteed to grow, or the Foundation will replace them free of charge. To be sure that your trees arrive in a strong and healthy condition, we ship bare root stock only when it is dormant in the fall and spring seasons. Trees are sent according to your local climate and this year’s weather.
