Beautiful trees
I bought six of them in May2014 and all have survived and grown fast. They received no artificial watering after initial planting, but that's typical of here. I planted cherries, plums, pears and apples, and only the cherries were attacked by beetles, but that's not their fault. It just means they need a little care.

Review Title
I have not had this tree long enough to see how it performs after a winter season but as of right now it is growing beautifully.
I am waiting to see if it will bear fruit in the spring. All else said I was pleased with the condition of the tree upon arrival to my address. The packaging was great and it started putting out new leaves within a couple of weeks. I would recommend this nursery to anyone looking for quality trees that is truly fast growing. I will be using this company for my future needs.

Rainier Cherry
I received my rainier cherry in great shape, its a very healthy looking tree and is even larger than 5ft. One of the limbs were broken during shipment, however I was able to have it heal back up by splinting it. I also purchased a banana tree off this site that is looking great right now. I am very satisfied. I plan on continuing purchasing the harder to find trees off this site due to their selection.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Rainier Cherry Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Emerald Green Thuja.

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 Emerald Green Thuja 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 Emerald Green Thuja again after the transplant is complete.

If I purchase a Rainer and a Bing cherry tree...how far apart should they be planted from each other?
Terri on Jun 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sweet cherry trees require cross-pollination, so you need to plant trees close enough that bees can carry pollen. Usually, planting trees within 100 feet is sufficient. You also need compatible sweet cherry tree cultivars within the tree groups. Each sour cherry tree can set fruit using its own pollen and thus is self-fruitful.

bryant w on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you are located in a zone 7 you can plant spring through fall.

How long is the growing season for these cherries? Where I live there are often frosts in the first parts of June, and the end of August. Is there enough time in those 10-12 weeks for the cherries to grow and ripen?
Hannah B on Aug 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think so. Our last frost in Ohio averages mid to late May, but these ripen in our area by late June so yours should still ripen by July
Are two or more Rainier Cherry Trees needed for plllenation?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014

I only have room for one cherry tree. Will it bloom without other trees?
Kathleen A on Sep 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Rainier Cherry is not self fertile so you would need another tree to pollinate it. A Stella Cherry is a sweet, self fertile tree that you could consider.

Does a ranier cherry tree need a pollinator? I have a Montmorency cherry tree. Would that work with ranier?
Cathy L on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Rainier is a sweet cherry so you would need another sweet cherry like a Black Tartarian, Rainier, Lapins or Barbados. The Montmorency is a tart cherry that would need a North Star.

Will 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.


Trimming & Pruning

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.
