Guarantee Policy: All nursery stock supplied is to be of true quality genetics and lineage to the best of our knowledge and be in fair core health when picked up or shipped from our facility.
1 Year Free Comprehensive Warranty Policy: All of our products come with a 1-year Warranty free of charge.
If a plant dies due to circumstances entirely out of the customer's power, such as winter losses or crop failure within 1 year of the shipment or pick up leaving our facility, you may be eligible for a store credit of equal value to those plants. Any acts of nature such as fire and flood are not covered under our warranty.
If an item is lost in transit, you may be eligible for a store credit of equal value to those plants upon providing any available evidence to prove that the delivery was not received.
For items deemed affected by common cycles in live plants causing cosmetic challenges like leaf drop, discoloration, etc., and for items deemed affected by transit and showing cosmetic challenges such as leaf shed, discoloration, leaf droop, or scorch or regular wear and tear common in live plants, advice will be supplied on caring for the plants after receiving a shipment and what to expect. Warranty inquiries will not be considered for these common and minor plant ailments that do not effect the core quality and long term viability of the nursery stock.
If concerns become greater than cosmetic and common wear and tear and if you are concerned about plant death or failure, to inquire about a warranty and maintain eligibility, you must notify us within 24 hours by email of such concern with current pictures of the plant(s) attached in the email to us. Pictures will be analyzed, and advice will be given.
Except for in the case of indefinite and 100% plant failure determined by our experts, warranty applications will not be reviewed and processed until July of the following season that you received the plants to ensure 100% confirmation of plant unviability before warranties are considered. In the case that a warranty claim has gone past inquiry to application and plant(s) have been determined to be 100% Unviable within the 1 year Warranty coverage period, please allow 30-60 business days for review and approval of warranty claim applications.
In the case that the one-year warranty coverage period lapses before the July of following season standard acceptance date of warranty applications opens, the coverage period will be extended to allow for the warranty holder to meet the set timelines we set out within this warranty.
Maintenance of photographic records is required to maintain your eligibility for our warranty. For the extent of the 1 year warranty coverage period you must maintain the following photograph records of the plants you receive from us as applicable in relation to the date you receive your order: photos of the plants when you receive them, as well as on July 1st, August 1st, September 1st, April 15th, June 1st, and July 1st of the following year. These pictures are used as records when necessary to analyze crop success and to help determine warranty approvals on specific crops. You must make the pictures available to us upon request to maintain your warranty eligibility.
Please note that all shipping costs are final and non-refundable once a shipment has been processed to leave our facility for its destination. Plants purchased outside of your growing zone will not be covered under our warranty. We reserve the right to decline a warranty claim if we believe that the loss was due to customer neglect or error. Our free 1 year warranty policy is a privilege and not an obligation. We reserve the right to cancel or remove the warranty at any time without notice due to any disrespectful and/or unprofessional conduct displayed on the warranty holders behalf through out the warranty process. (Please see our respectful conduct policy for more info)
Cancellation Policy: All cancellation requests must be sent to us via email and include your name and order number to be considered. Cancellations requested within either 14 days of the time of purchase or once an item has become back ordered for two consecutive shipping seasons may be eligible for financial reimbursement. Please note all cancellations requested within 14 days from time of purchase which are approved will be subject to mandatory a 25% cancellation processing fee. This fee is implemented to cover processing costs from accommodating the placement of your order through our payments server and credits can not be given to order holders as an alternative to the fee. Cancellations made after 14 days from the time of purchase and before the item has become back ordered for 2 consecutive growing seasons may be eligible for store credit in the amount of your cancelled order value. Cancellation requests will not be considered once an order has been processed to be shipped out from our facility. We must implement a strict cancellation policy as cancellation of reserved plant items in the nursery industry creates issues with inventory management, product allocations and organization of logistics. Items are specifically reserved for you upon placing your order. We appreciate your cooperation.
Exchanges And Returns Policy: Due to the fact that live plants have a perishable nature, we regret to inform you that we cannot accept any returns or exchanges to our nursery. As a living product, plants require specific care and environmental conditions to thrive, and we cannot guarantee that they will survive after leaving our nursery. However, we do offer a warranty policy for our products. If you receive a product that is unviable and meets the eligibility criteria for a warranty claim under our policy, we will offer store credit as compensation. This credit can be used towards future purchases from our nursery. Please note that to be eligible for a warranty claim, you must report any issues with the product within a certain time frame and follow our warranty policy requirements. (See Our Warranty Policy) Our team will assess the situation and determine if the claim meets our warranty policy's criteria.
Refund Policy: For any orders being considered for financial reimbursement (See Cancellation Policy) please allow up to 30-60 business days for the full review and processing time to be completed. At our company, we understand that timely refunds are important to our customers, and we strive to process them as quickly and efficiently as possible. However, we also take the security of our customers' financial information very seriously, and we have implemented robust review and processing procedures to ensure that refunds are being issued to the correct individuals and accounts. These procedures may add some additional processing time, but they are in place to protect our customers and their financial well-being. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work diligently to review and process approved refunds.
Shipping Policy: At our nursery, we take pride in carefully cultivating and growing a wide variety of plants. However, please note that due to the unique nature of each species, they all have different growing and maturation periods. As a result, different plants pass grade and are ready to be shipped at different times throughout the shipping and growing season.
Processing of Shipping: Except for in the case of an order with back-ordered items (see our back orders policy for more info) For any 1 order placed with us, standardly we will process it to ship as soon as ALL of the plants in the specific order are ready to be shipped. However, for larger or multiple orders, we reserve the right to split them up and ship them as each plant becomes available or combine them as we see fit. Each decision is made to ensure the most efficient shipping process possible. The order holder agrees to allow us to make these executive decisions on their behalf and for their benefit. Unless a customer has paid for separate shipping to accommodate such a request, we will not standardly ship items separately as they become available but only once all items have passed grade and are ready to ship. Our estimated spring/ early summer shipping periods by product and our estimated late summer/ fall shipping periods by product, showing specific estimated shipping periods within the specific timelines will be released at the beginning of each relative shipping seasons timeline. This will help order holders determine approximately when their entire order will be ready to process for shipping.
No Proration Of Shipping Cost On Multiple Orders: Under no circumstances do we agree to prorate, combine or discount the shipping costs for multiple or separate orders. Each order is considered a separate transaction, and as such, shipping fees are calculated at checkout based on the weight for that particular order. This is to ensure optimal organization of our logistics and provide the best shipping service possible to the order holder.
We work with multiple shipping companies and will select the one that is most beneficial to the shipping process for both the customer and our company. We estimate that orders will ship within the set timelines and periods, and we will send a notification with the necessary tracking information once the order departs our nursery. However, please understand that the 'Spring/Early Summer Estimated Shipping Periods By Product' is just an estimate and not an official shipping notification. You will receive an official shipping notification via email or text once your order is shipped from our nursery.

By placing an order with us the customer acknowledges and approves that no additional or special communication, notices or updates will be provided outside of the communication layed out in the Ordering Protocol Policy and all other pertinent policies in which it is bound by herein. Customers agree that it is their sole duty to familiarize themselves with all of our informational pages, policies, protocols and procedures prior to placing an order with us.

Customer Service by Email Only: Our customer service is strictly by email only. No customer service will be provided through any third-party platforms or by telephone and customers must use the official customer service email listed on the Canadian Tree Nursery website. Please note, at our company, we believe that providing the best possible customer service is crucial to our success. That's why we have made the decision to strictly provide customer service through email. We understand that some customers may prefer to communicate via phone, but we have found that email support offers several benefits over traditional phone support. For example, it allows customers to receive assistance at their convenience, without the need for scheduling a call or waiting on hold. This means that you can reach out to us whenever you have a question or concern, and we will respond as quickly as possible. In addition, email support provides a written record of the conversation, making it easier for both you and our support team to track and manage issues. You can refer back to previous discussions and we can ensure that we are addressing all of your concerns in a timely manner. We also understand that multitasking is important to our customers, and email support allows you to continue with other tasks while waiting for a response from our team. This can help improve productivity and reduce frustration. Finally, we have found that email support can help reduce miscommunication between customers and support agents, as customers have time to compose a detailed message and support agents can take the time to review and respond thoughtfully. This can help avoid frustration and misunderstandings. Overall, we believe that providing customer service through email is the best way to ensure that we are meeting your needs and providing the highest level of support possible. We are committed to responding to your inquiries as quickly as possible and providing the assistance you need to succeed.
Email Communication: Our sole method of customer service is through email communication. We will attempt to respond to all emails within 24 hours, but please allow up to 5 business days for a response. Please note that this is only an estimate and our teams are working hard to respond to the high volume of emails as quickly as possible.
Auto Responses: From time to time, we may provide auto responses that contain necessary and critical information. The customer agrees that these auto responses are to be considered official and sufficient responses in some cases. By placing an order on our website the customer also agrees that if their inquiries have been addressed by an auto response that no additional email communication will be or is required to be provided. An alternate customer service email may be provided in the case that the auto response does not address all of your concerns. If customers are not directed to an alternate email in the auto response and have questions that the auto response does not address, customers can expect a response within the estimated response times
Clear Instructions: In some instances, clear instructions will be given in emails, and we expect customers to follow them.
Busy Seasons: During our busy shipping seasons, we reserve the right to take longer to respond to emails. We appreciate your understanding during these times.
Self-Serve Informational Pages: We encourage customers to refer to our self-serve informational pages and policies before reaching out to customer service.
Respectful Conduct: We expect all customers to engage in respectful conduct when interacting with our customer service team. Failure to do so may result in discontinuation of customer service without notice or compensation. Please refer to our respectful conduct policy for more information.
