Will I need to pay a deposit?
In-season, a deposit of 25% of the total order is required on the day the order is booked. If you are pre-booking for a future season, the deposit is due within 30 days of booking the order. (This policy also applies to customers with Stark Bro's-approved credit.) Your trees will be allocated to your order upon receipt of your deposit. Please note that the availability of certain tree sizes and quantities may vary after grading. By paying your deposit now, you assure yourself of "priority status" once the nursery stock becomes available.
Is there a cancellation penalty?
Orders cancelled prior to December 1 are not subject to a penalty. If an accepted order is cancelled after December 1, the 25% deposit is forfeited. All cancellation requests must be confirmed in writing.
Is there a warranty?
Absolutely! If your tree/plant doesn't grow and you notify us before November 1 (following the planting), you have two options: we'll replace the tree - at no charge - and ship it with your next order, or refund the purchase price. Should you want the replacement shipped separately, you would be responsible for any shipping charges.
