Our Grafted Avocados Produce up to 7 Years Sooner than Seed Grown trees.. We take a hardy avocado root stock and graft on a cutting from a mature avocado tree, proven to produce delicious fruit. So your tree thinks it's grown up and starts making fruit. This is the same process used for commercial orchards, but is not always used for the home market.

Add a unique look to your patio or sunroom with the Hass Avocado. Outdoors this fruit-bearing tree will reach heights of 15 to 20 feet and a width of 5 to 8 feet at full maturity. In a container it will reach between 5 and 7 feet in height, allowing you to easily pick your avocado fruit in late summer.

The Hass is cold-hardy down to 26 F. once established,  making it suitable for climate zones 9-11. However the Hass Avocado thrives indoors for all zones, 4-11. It performs well in full to partial sunlight and is self-pollinator so you only need one tree to produce a hearty harvest. A second pollinator will increase the harvest for each tree. Many customers pollinate their Haas with our Cold Hardy Avocado Tree.

The Hass Avocado has dark green, bumpy skin which turns black as it ripens. The creamy, inner flesh is delicious in salads or guacamole. This avocado tree will not only look great on your patio but it will provide you with an abundant supply of healthy fruit.

Allow your avocados to reach full maturity on the tree to ensure the richest flavored fruit. The fruit may be kept on the tree for several months after reaching maturity, but they will not soften until picked. To quickly soften your avocados after picking, place them near bananas other other ripened fruit.
 

Avocado Tree Pollination

While avocado trees are self-fertile, they generally have a much higher fruit yield when they have a mate to cross pollinate with. Each avocado tree is either a type A or a type B, and it’s best for cross pollination when a type A tree is paired with a type B tree.

Each tree has both male and female flowers, but they open at different times. With a type A avocado tree the female flowers open in the morning for 2 to 4 hours and close and the male flowers open the next day in the afternoon for a few hours. Female flowers on a type B avocado tree open in the afternoon for a few hours, and the male flowers open the next day during the morning.

The male flowers release pollen for female flowers to receive, and when a type A tree is near a type B tree then male and female flowers will open around the same time.

The Hass Avocado is a type A avocado tree, and the Cold Hardy Avocado is a type B.

It's Easy to Plant your Hass Avocado Tree

Specific Directions for Hass Avocado Tree
Your Hass Avocado Tree will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although Avocado Trees prefer full sunlight they can tolerate shade. If planted indoors place your Avocado Tree by a large sunny window. Southward facing areas receive more light.

Hass Avocado Trees will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Make sure that the surface of the soil is dry to the touch in between waterings. Four times a year fertilize your Hass Avocado Tree with a citrus fertilizer.

Once your Hass Avocado Tree blooms and starts to produce fruit, it can take about 8 months for your avocados to mature. Once their skin turns a dark green color they're ready to be harvested. They take about 7 to 10 days to ripen after being picked. When the skin on your Avocados turns a darker green to purple color they're ready to be eaten.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Hass Avocado 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 Hass Avocado 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 Hass Avocado 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.

Great service. I love my trees, including the Avocado Tree. My Tree looks great in the living room and it currently has 25 baby avocados on it. Being that I only bought it last year, I am happy that it has a good number of avocados. I am not sure how many will make it to the end, as the tree is still very young. It is not easy to polinate as most female flowers opened in the morning and the male flowers in the evening. I used Q-tips to polinate them on the weekend when I was at home, as there is no bees or wind indoor. I am very please so far. Keep up the good job

Received my avocado tree. It was packaged neatly and securely. When I opened the box I saw it had lost some of its leaves. I planted it and it lost all of its leaves. I emailed support and they told me it was in shock. I kept watering it and it sprung back to life. Anxious to see the first yield which realistically will not occur until next year.

Haas avocado tree
Ordered the Haas avocado tree as a Christmas gift for my nephew who eats avocados daily!! He was thrilled! We weren't sure how it would hold up to Texas weather - hot one day, cold the next - but so far it has done great. It has put on so much new growth and he just has it sitting in front of a window during colder days. We have already looked at purchasing more for the rest of the family! Also, we really appreciated the instructions on taking care of a new fruit tree.

Hass Avacodo
Our first tree arrived in poor shape and died.It was immediately replaced by a much better tree! We did our research and discovered that these trees do best in filtered sun light.Since we live in zone 8, we potted the tree.It is November in the Northwest and we brought it in to the study and it is doing very well.We also bought a olive tree,planted it outside and it is thriving.We are very pleased with our experience with Fast Growing Trees.

Hass Avacado and CuBe
My Hass Avacado arrived right on time and looking good. Transplanted it immediately into Victory 8 Garden CuBe. Was a bit wilted for about a week and after that has done great. Only dropped a few leaves. Has grown at least a foot or more and continues to thrive, eventhough the night are getting cooler here in the mountains.
Seems the Victory 8 Garden light weight fabric CuBe and Fast Growing Trees Hass Avacado make a great combo.

The first Hass avacodo plants shipped had a problem, but as soon as we contacted fast growing trees customer service,(which is a model that all company customer service should use) they upgraded our original order with much larger and very hardy trees. One is already flowering and the Persea Americana fruit is anxiously anticipated.

Hass Avocada Tree
My Tree is growing slow, but looks healthy and green'. The first buds appeared in Nov. and I am excitedly waiting for spring to see if the fruit is formed.
I understand the avocado flowers are both male and female. It opens in the morning and is fertilized in the afternoon. Is this correct?
I'll let you know when the tree bears fruit.

the tree and great service
we ordered one large and one small avocado plant. When they arrived the little one was in great shape, the larger one was a bit shook up. After a short time, the larger one wasn't bouncing back, the little one was thriving. We bought the plant insurance- and working with Pam was easy and wonderful. We had the larger one replaced- now both plants
are happy and thriving. I appreciate the ease with which I was able to replace our larger avocado plant. Thank you.

I have bought five (5) different fruit trees from this company and I have been so far satisfied on how my fruit trees looked like. All of them have new shoots of young leaves. They initially looked like they were not going to survive especially my Avocado tree but after a few weeks, they are all doing well.

We have had our hass avocado tree for a little over 2 months now and it is doing great. We have ours in a large pot, as we live in Canada so the tree will be coming inside for the winter.

The tree looked sad when it arrived (but they warn about that) but once it was planted and watered it quickly turned around and now has an abundance of beautiful leaves. I can't wait for our first avocado to appear!

Haas avacado
My 2 trees are pretty dormant at this 2nd week of potting them. The Haas avacado is losing leaves & the cold hardy avacado has been green & doing much better since potting it. The Haas is going to be the problem it appears. It was pretty wilted when I received it. It lost leaves for the 1st week but maybe it's going to make it now.

A tad small, but we're excited about it!
We have a bit of space in the backyard that would be better utilized with a garden, so we purchased a couple dwarf trees to get started. The 3-4' Hass Avocado tree was one. It arrived at about 35" when stretched tall. Of course, we were anticipating one within the range and hoping it would be closer to 4', so this was just a pinch disappointing. After seeing the sapling, we are years away from fruit. However, it was packaged nicely and did not go through any kind of shock here in Southern California. In fact, it looks like it is really thriving with fresh sprouts and new little leaves cropping up. We are following the provided instructions for container growing and hope to have great success.

Great company... unlucky avocado TREE.
My first tree didn't survive. Probably too much direct sunlight on a few very hot days. Fortunately I paid the $4.00 growth insurance fee. They shipped me a new tree even better than the first at no charge, It was beautiful with a full set of leaves. I'd include a picture, but the deer got to it yesterday devouring all the leaves and tender green parts. What I have left is basically a stick, As I said, great company, unlucky avocado tree!

Hass Avacado Tree
I just got the plant earlier this year. The plant came in good condition. I decided to repot the tree in a larger pot. The tree has done pretty well so far. I have had to fight off some insects that like to lay its eggs under the leaf area. I have some new growth and will look forward to next year to see if it produces some fruit. My family loves avacados so if it grows well I may purchase another next year. I live in Jacksonville Florida and hopefully the climate will be a good growing place.

Haas Avocado
I ordered two trees both about 5-7 feet tall. One did well and the other went through shipping trauma. It lost all of its leaves and side branches as well as some of its height. It did this all within the first week, even though I planted both trees as soon as they arrived. The company was quick to respond and credit me for the sad tree. I was so looking forward to a bunch of avocados next season but will have to wait and see.

Hass Avacado Growth Pattern
Funny you should ask How the Avocado tree is doing. When I received it I immediately placed it in a large pot of planting mix. It drouped for a few days then started losing some of the upper larger leaves. Then it began to perk up and form new buds which have been in a no growth mode for all of the summer and most of fall. Two weeks ago, wala the buds started to turn into small leaves. Perhaps this is normal. We have mostly cool weather with some nice sunny days at this time of the year. Will we be eating avocados next year?

How long would it be before we can expect fruit?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2014
Best Answer: Our larger size trees (4-5 ft and 5-6 feet) are blooming and fruiting size, and will sometimes come with fruit already growing; it will take a few months for any new avocado to acclimate to its new home, but you should have new blooms within the first year or so and fruit the year after, since it can take 6 to 9 months for the fruit to mature. Smaller trees will take longer to get big enough to bloom and fruit, but you should have the first blooming from them a year or two after planting and fruit growing shortly afterward. Of course, the first harvests are quite small, but as the tree matures, they can give you substantial numbers of Avocados. We sell grafted trees that will produce delicious, high-quality fruit in just a year or two, not seedlings that take 7-10 years to even think of blooming and fruiting, and yield poor quality fruit, if they even produce any.

bambam on Jul 13, 2014
Best Answer: Our trees are shipped in plastic containers, and your tree will be fine in it for about a week. The sooner you plant it the better. If the container is too large for shipping then we remove it and wrap the roots in burlap.

If I bought the 5 ft.tree what size pot would it need ?
Barbara T on Jul 17, 2014
Best Answer: You would need to start out with a 12-14 inch pot, or one slightly bigger than the pot you received it in. When the roots fill the pot (1-2 years, depending on how well the plant grows), you will need to repot into a larger pot. As the tree grows, you will need to repot every year or so, each time into a larger pot, and ending with a 24" pot, or a half whiskey barrel. Having the pot on a wheeled base helps a lot when moving it around. The size of the pot will limit the size of the plant, so if you have very limited space, you might want to stop at a bit smaller pot; the tree takes well to pruning and you will need to keep it pruned to the size you want.

In what month does a Hass Avocado tree fruit ripen?
Bruno K on Mar 9, 2015
Best Answer: Typically February to April. Note that the fruit doesn't ripen on the tree. You have to pick it and let it sit for 1-2 weeks. When you suspect they're ready, pick one or two and let them sit for two weeks. If they're rubbery or they shrivel, they're not ready. If they soften, they're ready. There's no rush to get them off the tree. They can sit on the tree for quite a long time.

If i keep my plant in a pot, how big will it get? Obviously it is hard to bring it inside if it is 15-20 feet tall. I am in zone 6.
tracy f on Feb 25, 2015
Best Answer: Avocados do grow smaller when grown in a pot than in the ground, but you will still want to prune it so it stays the size you want. 6-8 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide is easily do-able in a pot. In the first two years, you can pinch back the central stem to encourage lateral growth and bushiness. You can also remove the tips of the lateral branches when they reach a length of 6 to 8 inches, pinching them off or cutting them with shears in front of the endmost bud. Continue to pinch back both vertical and lateral stems once or twice each year to maintain the size of the plant. You can remove up to half the length of a stem as long as you leave an 8-inch length of stems with some leaves on the plant.

I want to plant in a pot what size would I need?
Debbie D on Mar 10, 2015
Best Answer: Most experts recommend a 24 inch pot or a half whiskey barrel, and you will need to have it on a wheeled base to make it easier to move the plant indoors. You will gradually get to that size by starting out in a 12-inch pot and repotting every year or two into a pot 2 inches larger than the year before till you get to the size you want. Keeping it in a smaller pot (14-16") will keep the plant smaller, making it easier to handle and fit indoors for winter, but also making it produce less fruit. Judicious pruning staring at an early age will also help keep your plant a manageable size.

Is there ever a need to prune the tree??? Also took my tree outside for the first time and now the leaves are turning brown? Too much direct sun?? Or it's been pretty rainy - too much rain?
Trisha T on May 30, 2015
Best Answer: About pruning: Formative pruning to keep the plant smaller will make harvesting and maintenance a lot easier. In the first two years, you can pinch back the central stem to encourage lateral growth and bushiness. You can also remove the tips of the lateral branches when they reach a length of 6 to 8 inches, pinching them off or cutting them with shears in front of the endmost bud. Continue to pinch back both vertical and lateral stems once or twice each year to maintain the size of the plant. You can remove up to half the length of a stem as long as you leave an 8-inch length of stems with some leaves on the plant.
About your leaves turning brown when you moved the plant outdoors, you are probably right on both counts of too much sun and too much water. When you first move a plant outdoors, you need a transition period, starting with a couple of hours of morning sun and then moving it to a shaded are for the rest of the day; increase the hours in the sun each day until after 7-10 days, it is in pretty much full sun. When you have a lot of rain, be sure your pot does not sit in a saucer that holds water, but have it elevated so the water will drain out and away from the pot.

Which is a better avocado, Hass or Cold Hardy?
steveo on Jul 18, 2014
Best Answer: Both are excellent, but there are some differences. The Cold Hardy Avocado has a flavor very similar to the Hass - rich and nutty, the classic avocado flavor. Also, the Cold Hardy is a slightly smaller tree and will take temperatures lower than the Hass, down to the lower 20's as opposed to mid to upper twenties for Hass. Of course, young trees are much more tender than older, established trees, so will need protecting or brought inside when the temperatures dip to the low 30's.

My tree is 3 years old and blooms all over but the blooms never set, what's going on with my tree ?
Wildman on Apr 24, 2015
Best Answer: Your tree might just be going through adolescent growing pains: frequently, a young avocado's first blooms will fall off the first year, then it will produce a few fruit the next year, and then go on to produce more and more each year.You can do some things to help the process. If your tree was indoors, you might need to help pollination along by hand pollinating with a small artist's paint brush, once in the morning and once in the afternoon on each flower. Also, don't use a fertilizer with much nitrogen when you are trying to get fruit set, because it encourages foliage growth at the sacrifice of fruiting. A fertilizer made specifically for avocados would be good. One final observation; avocados always produce a lot more blooms and baby fruit than make it to maturity, which is part of mother nature making sure that even after weaker or flawed fruit don't drain the tree, and also that there aren't so many fruits that the tree cannot support their growth.

Will a Haas Avocado tree cross pollinate with a Cold Hardy Avocado Tree? What is the difference between the two?
Suzi C on Mar 26, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, they will cross pollinate and increase fruit production by over 50% because of the way their blooms open in a complementary succession. The Cold Hardy Avocado is a type B Avocado. The Hass Avocado is a type A. Type A blooms open in the morning as a female receptive to pollen, and then shed pollen as a male the following afternoon. Type B cultivars are receptive to pollen in the afternoon and shed pollen the next morning. So planting an A type and a B type 15 feet apart will improve fertilization and increase your harvest.

If type A and B avocado trees cross polinate, will Hass avocado produce Hass avocados or can they produce Cold Hardy, and visa versa? Excuse me for such a niave question, I'm just trying to understand a male plant producing fruit.
Rev. K on Aug 8, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Rev.Kaelene
A Hass will be a Hass and a Cold Hardy is a Cold Hardy.The flowers are only open for 2 days
The flowers are divided into two types, A and B. The type of flowers on a tree is determined by the variety of avocado you are growing, such as a Hass and a Cold Hardy. A type flowers open their female parts during the morning of the first day and their male parts on the second day's afternoon. Type B flowers wait until the afternoon of the first day to open the female parts and open their male parts the following morning.
You have pollination when the pollen released from one set of flowers is received by the flowers from another tree with their female parts open and ready to receive the pollen. In most instances, bees carry the pollen from a type A tree to a type B tree. It's quite an amazing thing ! Thank you hope this clarifies things.

I live in texas where the weather is bipolar ;) What do I do about the hot and cold temperatures? Leave it outside during the summer and inside during winter? Thanks in advance!!!
Kelly H on Jun 21, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Kelly,
We bought our avocado tree in the spring, 2 years ago and during the summers we keep it under our pergola. It does great! In the winter of the first year, we put it in the garage next to a window. It did okay, but the temperatures did get low in the garage, so that was not the best place for it. It bounced back in the next spring and summer and put on new growth, but did not produce any avocados. This last winter, we placed the tree in a small green house. It did a lot better than in the garage, but I believe bringing the tree inside the house would be the best. It seems to love the heat, so I would not be concerned about it during the summers. No avocados yet this year, but the research I've done makes me believe that it is normal not to have any for the first two to three years. We live in central Texas, close to Austin.
Hope this helps.

Can this plant be grown inside?
Mary L on Nov 20, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, it can be grown inside in a container, and many of our customers have enjoyed growing an avocado like this. You would start with a 12-inch pot and repot in a larger pot each year to 18 months until you get to a 24-inch size pot. Use a fast-draining potting mix like one for cactus or citrus. You will need 6-8 hours of direct sunlight, and proper watering is critical to success, as Avocados will not tolerate over watering nor under watering. If possible, it is good to set the plant outdoors for the summer, and bring it back in when temperatures get down to the 40's.

The avocado leaves have tip burns; I am asking what to do to correct the problem.?
HOMER V on Jun 2, 2015
Best Answer: There are several things that might be causing your leaves to tip burn, especially if you are growing your Avocado in a pot. You might not be watering correctly, so the tree is drying out or is too wet, or you might have a salt accumulation in the soil, probably from fertilizer salts building up. Avocados need deep watering (water flows out of the bottom of the pot), but only when the top of the soil is dry for about 2 inches; watering a little bit every day will not get water evenly through the pot and the roots can still get dehydrated. Your potting medium should be fast draining (a mix for citrus or cactus is good) and the pot should not sit in water; you need to empty the saucer out after watering, or the soil will re-absorb the water and be too wet. If your problem is from salt accumulation, you need to leach the salts out, which is done by flushing the pot at least 3 times and letting the water drain away; you should probably do this a couple of times a year, and do not fertilize but 4 times a year with fertilizer for avocados. If your water is chlorinated, you can let it sit for a few days before using it to water; the chlorine will disperse and the water will be good. This sounds like a lot, but the bottom line is: water correctly and get rid of accumulated salts.

I plan to plant my avocado tree soon after receiving it. I'm in zone 9, Jacksonville, FL with soil that drains well and placing it in an area of my yard that gets great sunshine. When preparing the plant hole, what type of soil/mulch would be best to plant it in to help root growth and give it the best chance for success as the roots reach well daring soil? Any other recommendations for success?
Dale A on May 25, 2015
Best Answer: Many experts say it is best not to add anything to the soil, as you want to encourage roots to grow out and not stay in your hole. Avocados like sandy loam and limestone and decomposed granite soils, loose and well-aerated and I think your soil in Jacksonville will meet these requirements. Mulch around it with a coarse yard mulch, including any of its own leave that fall. Make the hole as deep as the pot it comes in and a bit wider than the root ball. COLD PROTECTION: Even though a mature tree will take temperatures in the 20's without significant damage, young trees need protection when the temperatures go below freezing. FERTILIZING: Commence feeding young trees after one year of growth by using a balanced fertilizer four times yearly. Older trees benefit from feeding with nitrogenous fertilizer applied in late winter and early summer.WATERING: Over watering is the number one cause of problems for avocados. That being said, newly planted avocado trees should be watered at planting and every other day for the first week or so and then 1 to 2 times a week for the first couple of months. Once established, rain will provide most of what they need. If you have a prolonged period with no rain, especially in the winter, you will need to give your plant a deep watering every 2-4 weeks.

how can I transplant my avocado tree? The tree is 4 years full grown. I need an advice
Helio A on Apr 24, 2015
Best Answer: So sorry to not get back to you until now! I am assuming you are growing your tree in the ground. Transplanting should take place in spring to early summer, when the ground is warm but before summer heat sets in; if you did not transplant already, wait till fall. Dig a hole 3 times as wide and as deep as your root ball and break up the soil you dug out and loosen the surface of your hole. Place the soil back in t the hole - do NOT fertilize. Dig a hole in the loosened soil slightly bigger than the root ball, clip any roots growing in a circle around the root ball and ease the ball into the hole. Fill in around the root ball with dirt, apply a 3-4 inch layer of coarse wood mulch to the area around the tree, leaving a 3-6 inch gap around the trunk. Water deeply. Be sure to pick a sunny, well-drained site. They love sandy loam, so if you have clay, you will need to amend you soil with composted leaves and dig the hole even bigger than mentioned above, and you should consider creating a raised bed for your avocado.

What type of soil nutrient does my avocado tree need?
Scott P on Mar 26, 2015
Best Answer: Avocados do not not need copious amounts of fertilizer. A balanced fertilizer (10-10-10) four times a year is plenty. If you can find it locally, you can use a fertilizer specifically formulated for avocados and citrus instead. Older trees benefit from a feeding of a high-nitrogen fertilizer in late winter, though if you are having a problem with fruit production, do not fertilize with nitrogen while the tree is flowering and fruiting, as nitrogen will stimulate vegetative growth at the expense of fruit. Also, older trees sometimes have an iron or zinc deficiency, which can be remedied by preparations you will find at a nursery or farming supply store.

I have one Haas tree and one Cold Hardy tree, which I just moved indoors (I live in NY state). How often and how much should I water the trees?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2014
Best Answer: You should water your avocado trees when the top two inches of potting mix is dry. The timing will vary according to your growing conditions, but probably every 2-3 weeks. You should water until the water is draining out the bottom of the pot Every couple of months, you should probably leach salts out the soil, by watering heavily 3 times until the water is running out the bottom of the pot. Be sure that you discard any water that drains out, and don't leave the plant sitting in a saucer with water in it, as it will reabsorb the water and rot the roots.

can you mix a hass and a cold hardy if I wanted two trees or should they be the same?
Aris a on Oct 19, 2014
Best Answer: Planting one of each will actually give you much higher yields than planting two of one kind. Avocado varieties fall into one of two pollination types, A and B. They differ in the time of day (morning or afternoon) when the male and female flowers can reproduce: Type A flowers open in the morning as receptive females and close in the afternoon. They reopen the following afternoon for pollen shed. Type B avocado flowers open in the afternoon as receptive females, close overnight, and reopen the following morning to shed pollen. The Cold Hardy Avocado is type B, while the Hass is a type A, and so the combination will increase the number of fruits by 50% or more.

How will I know when to pick my Hass avocados? What color will the skins be?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2014
Best Answer: Hass Avocados will mature on the tree, but ripen, or soften, after they are picked. They will keep for months on the tree after maturity, becoming higher in oil content and richer in flavor; you can pick a few at a time to let ripen for eating, and leave the rest on the tree to keep. When they are ready to pick, the skin becomes pebbly, turns a darker green and becomes less shiny. They are typically ready in early spring through the summer. The best way to tell if your fruit is ready for harvest is to pick one l nice large, dark avocado and keep it at room temperature for 10-14 days. Test it every couple of days for softness - if it gives a little when you wrap it gently in your hand, the skin goes to purple or black, and the stem pulls off easily, it should be ripe. Cut into it: If it is rubbery and shrivels up, your fruit is not ready yet; if it is a consistency and flavor you like, then your crop is ready for picking.

Will my Trees 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 Fruiting Plants 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.
