Notice about the risks of transplantation failure when buying certain species of trees.
Hardiness and frost damage: Potential for loss and/or damage to certain trees.
Nutcracker nursery sales certain species of trees that have limited hardiness and some have not been extensively tested. The nursery is not responsible for the success rate of the transplantation of these trees or certain phenomenon associated with the hardiness of a tree such as signs of basal sprouting, frost cracks, branch stubs, root death or the incapacity to lignify. The nursery cannot be held responsible for the transplantation failure of trees that are planted in a hardiness zone that does not correspond to the species natural environment.
We strongly recommend before buying our trees, to read the trees technical descriptions to be well informed of the particularity and optimal hardiness zones for each species you are planning on buying. The description contains valuable information, such as the hardiness of the trees and how much experimenting has been done on the species in various hardiness zones. When buying trees and transplanting them into a zone that might put at risk their potential to thrive and even survive, you must aware of the possibility of failure. YOU ARE BUYING AT YOUR OWN RISK.
It is highly possible for certain trees to do well outside of their optimal hardiness zone; per example a tree that has been rated for a 4b zone may grow well in a 3b zone or lower zone, same for a tree rated 5b may also grow in a 4b zone. Environmental factors may influence such adaptation, like the type of soil, sun exposure, snow cover, a large body of water nearby, hedge fences and other trees protecting against the wind or the proximity of buildings. Sometimes global environment factors will influence the performance of trees even inside their recommended hardiness zone. Walnut trees that were planted in an open field fully exposed to the element and very close to the limit of their optimal hardiness zone, yielded poor results. MANY FACTORS MUST BE CONSIDERED BEFORE BUYING LARGE QUANTITY OF TREES.
