Q. What assurance do I have that your
trees have passed all inspections and meet all agricultural regulations?
Our trees and plants are inspected annually by representatives
of the Oregon
Department of Agriculture. Our stock has always passed inspections
for the Pine Shoot Moth, Cereal Leaf Beetle and the associated
hosts for Phytophthora ramorum. We have compliance agreements
available for any interested nursery.
Q. How many trees can typically fit on a full size semi?
This is a common question and not an easy one to answer.

are shipping containerized plants or B&B (ball and burlap).

fill out a credit application with approval to follow. All payments
are due in 30 days.
Q. Do you have other trees/plants available for purchase
that are not listed on your current availability?
As always, we try to keep our Availability lists updated
and current. Some times, not everything makes it on our Availability
if the inventory is small or spoken for by a pending order. If
you have a tree or plant in mind but don’t see it listed,
please give us a call….we may just have it!
Q. Where are you located?
We are easy to find, south of I-84 and north of Hwy
26, in the heart of “nursery country” in Boring, Oregon.
