Saratoga Tree Nursery Shipping Information
The 2012 Spring Seedling Sale is now closed.
Shipping arrangements are made when placing an order. There are three (3) options available:
1. You may pick up your order at the Saratoga Tree Nursery, which is located just south of Saratoga Springs on Route 50, approximately 30 miles north of Albany. You will be notified by mail when your order is ready. Shipping directions will be noted: "Pick up at Nursery".
2. Seedlings are also shipped by designated truckers to a single location within certain counties. This is the preferred shipping method. Orders slated to be shipped by the designated truckers will be given preference over option #3. Customer will pick up their order at a designated location on a specific date determined by the trucker. The purchaser will be notified by mail of the shipping date and billed separately for the shipping charges by the trucker. The Nursery will inform you of designated trucker availability for your county at the time of order.
Truck orders MUST be placed by March 31, 2012.
3. Customers may request UPS delivery under the following guidelines. UPS costs have increased and will be limited to those customers who do not have the "designated trucker" option, or to orders placed after the March 31, 2012 deadline. A UPS charge will be in place for units of 100 or less only. A $5.00 per unit plus 15% of the total bill for in-state orders and $5.00 plus 20% of the total bill for out-of-state orders of 25, 50, 90 or 100. Units of 250 are only available for pick ups or delivery by nearest designated county trucker. UPS orders will be accepted through May 4th, after which orders will need to be picked up at the Nursery.
All seedlings are shipped in bags and/or boxes which must be kept cool and out of direct sunlight to avoid seedling mortality due to heat. Seedlings must be transported under cover. The Nursery accepts no responsibility for seedling loss due to circumstances beyond its control and makes no provision for replacement of stock.
Shipments are made from mid-April through early May. Seedlings should be planted as soon as possible to take advantage of cool temperatures and good soil moisture from snow melt and spring rains. If planting is delayed, keep seedlings in the bags or boxes in a cool location out of direct sunlight. Seedling roots can be dipped in water and placed back in the bag or box.
