Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will your conifers grow where I live?
    There are thirteen growing "zones" in the United States. We recommend you google "growing zone in _____" <-- enter your state or even your city. Once you know what your local growing zone is, then google the full name of the tree your interested in to see what growing zone(s) it can tolerate (along with growing recommendations and advice).
  • How do I place an order?
    Use our Contact Form to send us a message with your name, your shipping address, your email address, and a list of what you'd like to order. We'll prepare an estimate including the cost of plants and shipping, and email an invoice to you. Payment can be made directly from the link on the invoice; we will not begin preparing your conifers until we have received payment. If you have questions or prefer to place an order by phone, call us at (503) 668-3920.
  • Do you ship your conifers, or can I pick them up in person?
    Yes to both. We ship to all 50 states including Hawaii and Alaska (we are currently unable to ship internationally at this time). If you're in the area, you are welcome to call us to schedule a time to come pick up your conifers directly from our nursery, which is located near Sandy, Oregon.
  • Should I amend my soil when planting?
    Although this depends somewhat on the type of soil you have, it's always best to use as much of your local/adjacent natural soil as possible. If your soil is heavy clay, you can add some organic amendments such as compost or bagged potting soil to help break it up, but be sure to blend it in with the native soil rather than removing and replacing.
  • What fertilizers do you recommend for conifers?
    If you plan to leave the conifer in a container, we recommend using a slow release fertilizer such as Osmocote, applied in the spring. If you are planting the conifer directly into the ground, we generally do not fertilize once planted.
