Free Shipping, But On Your Dime

Shipping is an absolute nightmare for any company and especially for us in that in any order there could be a range of heights and quantities from 12″ up to 72″ and from 1 to infinity.  I get a lot of inquiries asking why shipping is so much for a particular order in that it [...]

Ensuring Planting Investment Realization – What?

Our slogan is “Ensuring Planting Investment Realization” and we felt like expanding on why we feel this to be an appropriate slogan and mission statement all wrapped up in one wall street sounding tagline.  It is all based on the simple question of “why do you plant trees?”  We all plant trees for different reasons, [...]

Where is waldo?

I took these videos back this summer, but of course it took awhile to get around to getting them up here. You can see that there is no way you could have ventured into 7 foot tall greenbriars to find/flag your trees to keep from mowing them over. On top of that, the trees would [...]

Microclimates – What is that?

If you work in the tree tube business long enough, you use terminology on a daily basis that you yourself at the beginning didn’t completely understand.
