Shipping Options and Instructions
Please make shipping arrangements when you place your order. There are three (3) options available:
1. Pick up your order at the Saratoga Tree Nursery, located just south of Saratoga Springs on Route 50, approximately 30 miles north of Albany. Any orders made after May 7 must be picked up at the nursery. You will be notified by mail when your order is ready. Pay no shipping.
2. Preferred method: Seedlings are shipped by designated truckers to a single location within certain counties for a fee. Customers pick up their orders at designated locations on specified dates. Orders shipped this way are given preference over option #3. Customers will be notified of the shipping charges and pickup date when the order is made. Orders MUST be placed by March 31 for this option.
3. UPS delivery: Limited to customers who do not have the “designated trucker” option, or who place an order after the March 31. Fee per order: $5.00 plus 20% of the total bill or $15, whichever is higher. Orders placed after May 1st must be picked up at the nursery.
Shipments are made from mid-April through early May. Seedlings should be planted as soon as possible. Until planted, keep seedlings cool and out of direct sunlight. Do not let roots dry out.
