Shipping & Returns
Items offered through the Kansas Conservation Tree Planting Program MAY NOT BE USED FOR LANDSCAPING OR RESOLD FOR LANDSCAPING PURPOSES.
Anyone wanting to plant for windbreaks, woodlots, songbird or other wildlife habitat, erosion control, riparian filter strips, Christmas tree farms, or similar, may purchase these items. There are no restrictions on the purchaser such as in-town versus rural, in-state versus out-of-state, or landowner versus tenant. Governmental agencies may use the plants for any purpose deemed necessary, such as providing plants to students on Arbor Day, as door prizes, or recognition. We do not solicit out-of-state orders, but we will ship out-of-state if requested to do so.
Spring orders are generally shipped the second week of March through the first week of May, depending on weather conditions. We try not to ship plants when conditions are unfavorable for transport or planting. All orders are shipped by United Parcel Service (UPS) to the purchaser's address.
If you elected to pick up your spring order, you may do so from early March through the first Monday in May. Please call before coming to be sure that the items you ordered are on hand. You may pick up your order anytime Monday through Friday, 8:00-11:30 am and 1:00-4:30 pm. Please note each order for pick up has a $5 minimum handling charge.
The shipping and handling charge helps us recover the cost of boxes, packing material and labor associated with the conservation seedling program.
The plants are guaranteed to be the species and quantities ordered, fresh, and capable of growing when planted properly and maintained with reasonable growing conditions. As stated on the order form, claims should be reported within 60 days of receiving the plants, either by phone, in person, or via email.
All of the container-grown seedlings offered through the Kansas Conservation Tree Planting Program are grown in a greenhouse near the Kansas Forest Service's state office in Manhattan, KS. The origins of selected species source seed has been targeted to ensure desirable characteristics, such as form, color, and resistance to disease.
Bare-root seedlings are purchased from various state, federal and private nurseries.
Please be assured only the best seed and seedling sources are used in the Kansas Conservation Tree Planting Program. If you are unhappy with your order, you may be covered under our guarantee.
