Using Air Pruning pots eliminates roots circling just inside the edge as they would in a normal black plastic pot. With less need to cut these roots, there is little to no transplant shock. Grown by an ISA Certified Arborist, the root flares are visible at the top and the trees are pruned to be structurally sound for the long run. This system produces trees that are superior without the guesswork to eliminate girdling roots and manually locate root flares.

Please Note:

  • Prices/quantities are subject to change at any time. 
  • Delivery cost is $4/mile from our location to yours (one way)
  • Planting cost is calculated roughly by doubling the cost of the trees with a $150 minimum planting fee within 1 hour of the nursery.
  • Wholesale pricing is available for orders over 25 trees at one time.
  • What is currently available for sale is listed under "Quantity".
  • Most of our fruit trees are on semidwarf rootstock unless listed. We do not grow on dwarf due to the tree needing staking support for its lifetime.
  • We no longer grow sweet cherries due to disease issues and do not generally recommend planting them in this climate. 
  • Our new velcro pots can be returned to the nursery for reuse. We pay $0.50 for each pot returned (non wholesale orders only). 
  • We accept and prefer cash, check or venmo. Sales tax charged on all orders unless tax exempt. Credit Cards are not accepted.
  • Please see our information on pickup (bring a mesh tarp for open bed trucks and trailers) and planting here: Pickup and Planting
