Deposit of $1 per tree confirms your order. Our Wepster are currently potted only. The rest of our trees are bare root. We fill our orders on a first ordered, first filled basis, by date. Balance is due on receipt of trees. All pots and totes will be returned to Birkemeier Farms. We may add a deposit of $25 per tote box to the order. Refundable when boxes are returned.
All our Hazelnut trees are hand sorted. #1 Potted trees are at least 32″ planted height. #1 Bare-root trees are a minimum of 32″ planted height and have strong roots around the stem. Caliper varies.
Trees grown in the shade-house or traditionally propagated from the field should not require staking. Some greenhouse grown trees may need the support of a stake when planted in the field.
