No refunds or replacements

The City does not assume responsibility for the successful transplanting of these trees. Weather conditions, methods of handling and aftercare govern the results. Trees will be sold with the understanding that if they arrive in good condition and are accepted, the city’s responsibility ceases. Therefore, we do not give out refunds or replace trees that fail.

We do not give refunds for trees not picked up.


Orders received after April 23, 2021 may not be accepted or filled, due to a limited supply.
