Office Hours are seasonal** (weather permitting).

**Season is normally from mid-April to mid-December, including the summer months. Successful summer digging includes a pre-soak using an organic transplant agent, digging over sized root balls, and transporting with tarpaulin protection.

The office is closed evenings and on Sundays, however, for your convenience the nursery is set up for you to come and browse, select, tag, and reserve trees on a self serve basis.

An information kiosk/display board (for self directed shopping) includes tagging ribbon, inventory list, and directions. You are welcome to do so at any time.

It is advisable to bring suitable footwear during or after rainy periods when mud is inevitable.

Our gravel lane ways enable viewing of most varieties from your vehicle.

Tagging your own trees

Our inventory includes a wide variety of #1 grade top quality locally grown deciduous (starting at approx. 50 mm (2″) caliper) and conifer trees (starting at 150 cm (5 ft) height). All stock is adequately spaced for easy viewing and selection. We encourage you to come and compare the quality of our trees to any others.

Outside our main office in the lower gravel parking lot you will find an information display board with much of the same information you can find on this web site.

You may pick up a current catalogue price list at the display board.  All our trees are tagged with their number, species and current size that corresponds to the catalogue price listing.

If you wish to reserve or select a tree that interests you, please do the following:


  1. Write your name on a piece of ribbon (provided at the display board) with a black marker and tie it to the tree(s) selected.
  2. Please fill out a work order form (WHITE copy is yours) and leave it in the locked mailbox (at the display board) with your name, address, ph. #, and tree #, as well as any questions you may have.
  3. If we missed your visit, we will call you at our earliest convenience, to answer any questions or to arrange delivery, and planting schedule.


Note: Larger trees 80 mm/250 cm and over will require crane or tree spade access. Please see Tree Moving Criteria for more information.
