How to Order

Step 1: Understand what you are buying.

We sell bare rooted, fully dormant trees. We ship them well packed with moist  sawdust or recycled newspaper so the roots won't dry out. Bare rooted trees have more natural root systems because the roots are not restricted by growing in a pot. We don’t sell or recommend so called ‘advanced’ trees. When smaller trees are planted they will adapt better to their new environment and grow faster than taller trees. Buying bare rooted trees also means that they don't take up much space once they are packed and are much easier to carry and ship.


Step 2: Understand who you are buying from.

We are a small nursery and all our trees are propagated on-site. We are not a reseller.  As the demand for cold hardy trees increases, be sure to order early as demand exceeds supply. They are grown outside to be ready for real life when planted in your yard. We specialize cold climate trees.


Step 3: Understand about delivery and collection

Our dispatch months is July when the trees are fully dormant. If you’re in our local area you are welcome to collect your order by appointment from our filed nursery in the Huon Valley, Southern Tasmania.

We use Australia Post to deliver orders if you are unable to collect.  We are limited by Australia Post size restrictions and cannot post anything over 1m in length. We can, at no harm to the tree, prune to fit this criteria.

Costs for post and packing via Australia Post for Tree Orders:

NSW and ACT : $50 for the first tree and $5 per tree thereafter
VIC: $40 for the first tree and $5 per tree thereafter
TAS: $30 for the first tree and $5 per tree thereafter
QLD and SA: Price On Application

Costs for post and packing via Australia Post for Rootstock Orders:

All States: Minimum post and packing for rootstock orders is $30. This covers 10 rootstocks (irrespective of grade). Each multiple of 10 thereafter is an additional $3.

For example: The post and packing cost for 100 rootstocks is $57. This is made up of the $30 minimum and 9 lots of $3.


Step 4: Understand about ordering

Ordering opens in March of each year and runs through to the end of dispatch in August.

Please email: maplegrovenursery@bigpond.com  to place your order.

Be sure to include the varieties you would like, a postal address and contact telephone number.  Also if you have a preferred time to receive your trees within July and August.


Step 5: Confirmations

Once your order has been placed we will send you a confirmation invoice. If you don’t receive this within 14-21 days please contact us to make sure we’ve received your order. We will contact you as soon as your trees are ready to be dispatched and organise payment and a convenient time for delivery or collection. We only accept direct deposit for postal orders and cash or direct deposit for orders being collected.
