We offer a number of related services, including:

Landscaping and/or tree-planting consultations

Landscaping and tree planting is not inexpensive. But it is certainly an investment that should pay dividends for years to come – in the value of your property and in your enjoyment of same.

So it's important that you get it right.

If you are you thinking about developing your property landscape or creating practical, visually pleasing outdoor "spaces" that will better accommodate your needs or see your vision come to life, then talk to us.

We can help. We can evaluate and advise you on the current condition and layout of your property scape and provide ideas for improving the look and functionality of the space. We will assess the health of your existing tree stock, recommend how to improve, transplant or replace it with something that would be more suitable to your plan or your dreams. We do try to make the best use of materials already available on the property and will work within the parameters of your budget.

Depending on the scope of the project, we can do the landscaping for you or advise on who might be the best alternative. And we can always provide the tree stock, whatever your needs may be.

Self-dig your trees

Under certain circumstances, we allow volume buyers to select and dig trees on our property. In general, when this occurs, the purchaser can subtract $30./tree from the negotiated cost of sale. Under the self-dig arrangement, all invoices are payable in full before the trees are removed from the property (for new customers, a deposit may be required prior to digging). Terms and conditions (such as spade size, filling of holes and tree selection) will be negotiated prior to the finalization of purchase. Understandably, the purchaser will reimburse the vendor for any trees damaged in the removal of the selected trees at a pre-determined cost. The vendor will honour any quoted price for a period of 30 days. (See also General Terms and Conditions of Sale.)

Tree spading and tree drilling services

We can provide transplanting services for large and small landscaping or tree planting projects – our equipment includes tree spades from 33 inches to 96 inches in size.

Large Tree Sales

We began planting in 1996 and continue to plant yearly. Thus some trees have not reached their full, mature height. However, through several companies in the tree nursery and landscaping business sectors, we can arrange to accommodate your need for larger trees (beyond what our current inventory provides). We will either give you a direct personal reference or negotiate a sale price on your behalf that you find satisfactory. As an industry “rule of thumb,” the approximate price for large deciduous trees is $100 to $150 per caliper inch, depending on the tree variety (conifers are, of course, less costly). We pride ourselves in dealing with “good people” in the industry – these are the people from whom we ourselves buy our tree stock.
