We Prune Your Tree Throughout Its Life… NOT just when we ship it!

So instead of a tree that resembles a fishing pole, you get one that has well developed branches and is hefty enough to start supporting fruit production.

The heights advertised are generally after we prune your tree one last time, unless otherwise noted. So the height you pay for is what you receive.

Plus we don’t include the pot or root length in our measurements. This can give you an extra 1-2 ft. in height.

Our larger trees can be one to three years older than our smaller ones and should give you fruit the first season.

It's Easy to Plant your Green Columnar Apple Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Green Columnar Apple Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Green Columnar Apple Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Green Columnar Apple Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Beautiful Tree
It's Thanksgiving time and we've already had 7 inches of snow and the columnar apple trees are still standing tall with a few dead leaves hanging on. I do hope they will bloom and bear apples next year. I look forward to their growth and fruit bearing.

Growing great
This one and the scarlet exploding with life. 2 Very good trees. The buds are all turning into leaves in less then a month. The golden was 2 feet taller and nothing. Looks dead the only reason im keeping in the ground is because part of it still green. I had to take a foot and a half off the dead top, hoping that does the trick. I highly recommend this one and the scarlet, don't waste your money on the golden. Who knows it might be the best tree ever but right now its a flop.

Great little tree
This one, ordered at the same time as the red columnar apple arrived in perfect condition. I transplanted it into the yard and it is doing extremely well. It was loaded with flowers, but not wanting to stress the plant too much, I allowed only four of the fruit that set to stay on the tree, so am looking forward to them ripening and definitely lookforward to a harvest next season!

Green Columner apples
Green Columnar apple tree came in planted easy and adapts to the soil well, then again i wouldn't have expected otherwise having grown in Johnny Appleseed region. Havn't had any animals get at it so leafs look and feel healthy. Hasn't seen a New England winter yet though so we shall see if it survives through till next year. Happy with my tree, arrived healthy and fresh, I can't wait for some apples to start growing!

Interesting tree
When it arrived it had almost no roots, but had leaves and even a small apple on it. Since I have received it, the tree looked like it was going to die. Watered it with a deep watering spike and weak fertilizer and it now has begun to put on new leaves and appear to be growing new roots in the soil

Green apple tree.
I planted my tree. It has leaves and seems to be doing OK. Ask me again once it has a chance to flower and grow some apples.
I hope it is hardy and that it produces some apples .

How large should pot be for outside patio?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2014
Best Answer: Actually we do sale a very 12" x 12" patio container that works very well. However bigger works well too, as long as you are able to move it around. There are some nice containers 24" x 24" or a tad smaller, that come with wheels, that makes it really easy to move in and out.

What does this apple taste closest to compared to other apple trees? (Yellow delicious, Fuji, Pink Lady, etc.).
H J on May 29, 2015
Best Answer: I dont have any fruit yet. Just planter fall of '14. however I understand that some columnar apples [maybe all] are not as sweet. Does'nt matter to me I have other varieties for fresh eating. We want to make a tart sauce and cider and hope these are not as sweet.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
