Trees that are sized by height or caliper are delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap. They require heavy equipment to install. We recommend working with a contractor for installation! They can also provide the equipment necessary for offloading the tree upon delivery. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor has equipment ready upon your trees arrival! OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.
**Dormancy Note - This plant is currently dormant for the winter! It is available for purchase! Your delivered plant may be dormant, or showing very little top growth. However, you can still plant! These plants are putting all their energy into root production, so they will be ready to thrive in the spring! If you have any issues with your plant the following peak season, you can fill out our return request form to request a replacement plant.
