How are the heights measured?
All tree, and nothin' but the tree! We measure from the top of the soil to the top of the tree; the height of the container or the root system is never included in our measurements.
What is a gallon container?
Nursery containers come in a variety of different sizes, and old-school nursery slang has stuck. While the industry-standard terminology is to call the sizes "Gallon Containers", that doesn't exactly translate to the traditional liquid "gallon" size we think of. You'll find we carry young 1-gallons, up to more mature 7-gallons ranging anywhere from 6 inches to 6ft.
How does the delivery process work?
All of our orders ship via FedEx Ground! Once your order is placed online, our magic elves get right to work picking, staging, boxing and shipping your trees. Orders typically ship out within 2 business days. You will receive email notifications along the way on the progress of your order, as well as tracking information to track your plants all the way to their new home!
Why are some states excluded from shipping?
The short & sweet answer is: "United States Department of Agriculture Restrictions." Every state has their own unique USDA restrictions on which plants they allow to come into their state. While we wish we could serve everyone, it's for the safety of native species and helps prevent the spread of invasive disease & pests. We've gotta protect good ole' Mother Nature, after all.
Everyone loves to receive a gift. Giving one is such a wonderful feeling too – you have the chance to show a loved one or friend just how much you care. It may be a simple ‘thank you’ gift for a favor; a birthday present; a seasonal gift for a parent or family member; a new baby; or something else, like a wedding or new-home gift.
Trees and shrubs make superb gifts for every occasion, but sometimes it is hard to choose for someone else, and you want them to have the flexibility of personal choice. Perhaps you are giving a gift for a new home that hasn’t yet happened – such as at a wedding, so you cannot possibly know what plants will be needed. Now there is the Tree Center Gift Card, for the gift that keeps on growing and growing.
- Instant delivery – no waiting
- Available in denominations of $50, $100, $250 and $500
- Let the recipient make the choice – no mistakes possible
- The perfect way to mark a special occasion
- The only gift that keeps on growing
At the Tree Center we have a stunning selection of Gift Trees, but heck, in the end every tree we carry makes the perfect gift for some situation. Making the choice for someone else is hard, and a wrong choice diminishes the value of the gift. So we decided to give you the chance to put choice into the hands of the receiver – with the Tree Center Gift Card. Now you don’t have to worry about the choice you have made – just give someone our Gift Card, and the choice is theirs.
All the receiver of your thoughtful gift needs to do is browse our extensive collection of trees, shrubs and other plants, and selected exactly what they want. Everyone is happy – you get to make the gift and they get to make the choice. The great thing about Gift Trees is they keep on growing, become more impressive with each passing year. They make great memorials for special events, like weddings and christenings – a living memory that grows and grows.
