*Fall Dig orders will be ready November 12th for pick up. We will call you when your trees are dug. Due to the drought, we are a week behind digging.
Q: What are the benefits of Fall Tree Planting?
A: Planting your trees in the fall gives the tree more time to establish roots before the stress of the hot summer. Summer is usually the most stressful time on a tree because it is hotter and dryer. Tree roots grow best in cool soil, above 50 degrees F, and will go dormant below that. Planting your trees in fall will give it two full cooler seasons to prepare for summer.
Q: When does Schneider Nursery begin Fall Tree Orders?
A: Starting the week of Labor Day, Schneider Nursery takes specialized dig orders for our fall season. At that time, we will have pricing, sizing and availability for our field grown trees. Place a special order for pick up the first week of November.
Q: How do I place a Fall Tree Order?
A: Contact the Garden Center, our staff can provide you personal attention from our staff. This can be done in person or over the phone if you have an idea of what you are looking for to fill your space.
Q: Do you offer tree installation?
A: Yes we do, there are two options for you. If you are selecting a trees from our dug or potted selection at the garden center, we can have those installed within a 2-week period (weather dependant). The second option is to allow our knowledgeable staff to select your trees from our own field grown trees. Once you decide your variety and size your hand picked trees will be delivered and planted in December (weather dependant).
Q: When do I need to pay for my tree order?
A: To secure your order, payment for the trees is taken at the time of your order. Installation costs are paid at the time of job completion. Delivery and Planting fees are 50% of your subtotal for all trees with 24” to 36” balls of soil. Larger trees with 40” balls of soil are 75% of the subtotal for installation.
*Prices are quoted for residents within a 25 mile radius of Schneider Nursery. All located outside of the 25 mile radius will have an extra charge if we are able to schedule your job.
Q: How do I care for my new trees?
A: Proper watering is critical within the first year of your new tree, and overwatering is just as dangerous as under watering. Most landscape plants need one inch of water per week throughout the season. Using a soaker hose for 15 to 30 minutes is a good way to allow water to infiltrate the root system over a longer period. Of course our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help answer any care questions you might have for your new tree.
