Mission Statement

Our Promise

Customer success is our number one priority. As such, we take great pride in asking the specific questions to determine which plant material will work best in your location. We do not want to sell you a plant if we are not confident that it will successfully thrive in your space. We want to help you to get it right the first time, ensuring there's no need to rip and replace unsuccessful products and waste time and energy doing so. We are so confident in the quality of our plants and the quality of our recommendations that we guarantee our trees and shrubs for one full year.


An Endless Choice of Wire Basket Caliper Trees

We are very proud of our comprehensive selection of wire basket caliper trees. Similar species are organized together and displayed at our centre in Rows A1, A2, A3 and so on, all the way to G2. Check out the vast assortment of pyramidal evergreens in Row B1 or the majestic Red Oak, Pin Oak or White Oak in Row D1.


We also have a great selection of 4-inch caliper maples trees, which are 15 to 20 feet tall in Row C3. Varieties include Autumn Blaze Maple, Red Sunset, October Glory, Autumn Fantasy and Brandywine Maple. There is no reason to order a tree and hope it is nice! We encourage you to stroll our rows of trees to personally choose the tree that will adorn your property for many years.
