THE PURCHASERS RESPONSIBILITY:

Planting site preparation and establishment maintenance is critical to the final success of any tree. While we provide you with trees that have had the best start in life when you take them to their new home it’s up to you how well they do.

Planting and bringing a tree into an established state should cost 2 – 5 times the purchase cost of the trees. This includes the preparation of a proper planting site, sustaining the required environmental conditions for the tree to establish and management procedures on the tree through the establishment period.

Remember: “The Dogs Life of a Tree” is 10 human years to 1 tree year.
