For orders shipped in the winter or Spring - Our bare root trees are guaranteed to leaf out and grow if correctly cared for upon receipt and properly planted and maintained. We guarantee evergreen plants will be delivered in a healthy condition. Because the trees are living things and subject to the whims of nature and neglect, we do not guarantee against late frost damage, herbicide damage, mower or wildlife damage, drought or excessive fertilizer, etc. Jujubees, mulberries, persimmons, peaches nectarines and dogwoods can sometimes delay breaking dormancy until mid summer. Trees that have been stored in our coolers can also be late to leaf out. If there is a problem with an evergreen tree, please contact us within 3 days of receipt. Before contacting us about a bare root tree, scrape the bark of the tree down low on the trunk with a fingernail or knife. If you see some green tissue just under the bark, the plant is still alive. Be patient the tree should leaf out. Please contact us asap if plants fail to leaf out and you've already scraped the bark to examine the cambial tissue.You must contact us within 4 months of delivery to be eligible for the bare root guarantee.
