The Burlap Bonanza!

The sale where you get to Keep the Burlap!

Welcome to The Burlap Bonanza! Here's how it works:

1) Availability is totally dependent on the weather, and my luck at collecting. Trees may not be available every year. This sale is normally only held in the spring.

2) Trees are sold as-is, with the root mats wrapped in burlap. There are no refunds. The advantages to you are: A) 30-50% discount off normal price. B) Pot the tree in your own soil, in your own pot, at the angle you choose. C) Gain experience with collected material and grow your tree right from the start.

3) Sales are first come-first served. Email is the best way to place an order. Because of high demand it's often helpful to list a couple alternate tree choices.

4) Shipping estimates are based on FedEx Home delivery to NJ. If you send your complete shipping address & phone number I might be able to get a better rate. Several trees will usually ship together for the price of the largest tree plus $5 per additional tree.

5) All trees are legally collected from National Forest, BLM, state or private lands. Individual transplant permits will be left on the trees when provided.

6) Only Ponderosa pine, Black Hills spruce and other plentiful species will be offered.

The next posting of trees will be: Wednesday, May 11th, 8pm MDT.
