Information on shipping
By Courier Express service
Bus delivery only for customers inside Canada
Depending on where you live in Canada, it’s highly possible that we ship your order by bus services, (Greyhound Express service). This ensures a faster delivery of your order and a less expensive cost, most of the time, compared to Canada post and they accept oversize and unpackaged trees in a box.
By Canada Post
For shipping in Canada and for outside Canada
If we cannot reach you by courier express and we chose Canada post, we wish to inform you that the minimum shipping cost for a box 24”x12” x12” is $16.50 for standard delivery. Larger box sizes are available for shipping. We do not ship Priority because it is not cost effective for the client. The plants can easily sustain 10 days in shipping without damage.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMAND THAT YOU MAXIMIZE YOUR PURCHASE AND MINIMIZE THE COST OF SHIPPING. This is how you can do it:
Example: A box 48”x16”x16” weighing between 1 kg and 26kg will ship for the same price which is $50.50 to most regions in Québec, $65.00 for more remote regions and similarly for the Maritimes. Ontario also benefit from a similar cost when shipping. Keep this in mind when placing an order.
We also have good price charts for shipping in United-States. If you are not ordering from U.S or Canada, we will be contacting you to inform you about the shipping cost by air cargo or ground shipping. Often, when shipping outside the U.S and Canada, we use the services of a customs brokerage company for more efficiency in the delivery steps.
Important: If we cannot use either mode of delivery and for large orders, we will use a ground delivery company. At any time, feel free to e-mail us if you have questions

Important information when ordering trees – season, delivery and transplant timing.
Bare root trees are not harvested during the growing season because it causes damage and diminishes the quality of the product. They are available during spring and fall; they can be ordered and reserved for the next harvest at any time. It is imperative to plant bare root trees as soon as they have been delivered so that the trees do not suffer damage.
During summer, only potted trees are sold and delivered because they can be planted at any time during the growing season, they are also available in the spring and the fall.
