Ordering and Delivery of Fruit Trees

Where do you deliver to?

We are able to deliver trees to most locations in the contiguous United States (the "lower 48").

Unfortunately we cannot deliver to Canada or Alaska or Mexico.

Customers in North America can also order trees for delivery to friends and relatives in the UK (and vice versa) without incurring international delivery charges. See our UK fruit tree website for more details.

Shipping charges

Shipping charges are calculated automatically and shown on the shopping cart and checkout pages. We do not have a minimum order value.

Deliveries to California are subject to a small additional charge for mandatory phytosanitary inspection.

Can I order trees for shipping to different delivery address?

Yes - at the checkout just enter your own address as the billing address, and then enter a different shipping address.

Delivery periods - when will my order be delivered?

Our main deliveries start in March or April depending on weather conditions.

Whilst you can place your order at any time, fruit trees are a natural product and there are some limitations on when they can be shipped. During the checkout process you will have the opportunity to request a specific delivery month and we will do our best to comply but we cannot guarantee delivery on or by a specific date - we have to take local weather conditions and the growth rates of trees into consideration as well.

See our list of spring delivery dates by state for more details.

If you are in USDA Zone 7 or above we may be able to ship to you in late November for fall planting, but this also depends on stock availability at the nursery. Please note that young fruit trees cannot tolerate temperatures below freezing during November and December, so if this is a possibility for your location it will be better to plant in spring. See our article about the pros and cons of fall vs spring planting.

Where do the trees ship from?

Our trees are grown for us to our specification by Cummins Nursery of Ithaca, NY.

When do I pay for my order?

We accept orders all year-round but we can only deliver in the delivery periods described above. When you place an order the stock is normally reserved for you within a few days, but depending on the time of year when you place your order we may not request payment immediately. In general for orders placed during late fall and winter, we will ask you to pay straightaway at the time of order. If you place an order over the summer, we will take the order but you won't need to pay immediately. We will then send you an email notification nearer the time asking you for payment.
