Frequently Asked Questions

What is the survival rate of the transfer process? Does distance play a role?

You can expect a survival rate of 95% or greater when a proper aftercare program is in place. Distance does not play a role in survivability when all precautions are taken to ensure bare roots stay moist in transit.

Is relocation/selling available nationwide?

Currently, we only support relocation and selling within Michigan. Support for additional states is in the works.

I was about to have my tree cut down; isn’t it a no-brainer to sell it here instead? What’s the catch?

We’d like to think of it as a no-brainer! Unfortunately, not all trees and shrubs that are submitted will qualify. We are currently only seeking healthy, large specimen trees that are easily accessible, structurally sound, have a trunk diameter between 3-14”, and 85% or greater tree health. Unique styling is a bonus.

I’d like to relocate a tree to a different area on the same property – what fees will I be responsible for?

When relocating a tree, there will be a fee for the Transplanting services as well as a transaction/administration fee based on the appraised value of the tree. Transaction fees range from 20-30% depending on appraised value.

Can I buy/sell/relocate a tree during the winter months?

Yes, however if the ground is frozen, the removal and relocation process will be delayed until the ground has thawed.

Is the price listed on the website the amount I will be receiving for my tree? Do I (as the seller) pay any fees?

At this time, prices will not be listed on our site. The seller payout will include the appraised value, less the transaction fee. A listing agreement will be provided to the seller with these details(Add link for our transaction schedule)
