Box and Yard Trees
June 2014
All trees listed as #1 Grade are offered to you in forms which are
typical for their species.

Unfortunately, a few of our trees defy nature's and our best efforts and are not looking their best at the moment.
Experience tells us that time will erase any defects, making these trees a valuable addition to any landscape.
We offer these few trees at a discount from our regular price list.
Availability for these trees follow the #1 Grade Tree listing.
