Do these trees stay green year-round ?

Yes, Evergreens will stay green year-round.

 

How much water do they need?

Water is very important when they are first planted. We recommend that you purchase a soaker hose, loop each tree, and water them for 1 hour a day, every other day, for the first month. Then taper off watering to once a week until the ground freezes.

 

Where are the trees grown?

Our trees are grown by local farmers which makes the trees very hardy and indigenous to our local environment and soil.

 

How deep do they need to be planted?

The trees have a very shallow root system that grows parallel to the ground. For a 6 foot tree, it would be planted down around 10-12 inches.

 

Are the trees guaranteed?

How far apart do you plant the trees?

How long will it take to get my trees after I order?

Do the deer eat the trees?

Since they are an evergreen and stay green year around, the deer can sometimes nibble on them in the winter. However, it's not their primary source for food, so they tend to only do it after deep snow falls. It generally is never an issue, however if it becomes an issue, Home Depot sells an oil based spray for under $20. That will eliminate any interference.
