Gardening do's and don'ts of the particular season
and weekend we're currently experiencing. Listeners
often define the course of the discussion, because
many of us are dealing with the same issues
simultaneously. We'll also add little known and
interesting facts and dispell the fictions of
gardening. You'll also hear useful advice to keep
any garden growing strong.
Show sponsors will often participate by lending
their expertise in a given area. From time to time
we go on the road for "remote" broadcasts and take
"live" questions from audience members who join us
on location. Stay tuned as well for special
promotional events such as tours of area gardens
hosted by Ed and Art.
We are a tree farm, not
just a nursery. Most of the trees we sell have been grown right here
in Snohomish at our 60 acre tree farm. Buying directly from a grower
gives you fresh trees, great selection, and low prices--you maximize your
purchasing power! For more information including photos of our
farm and growing fields, click here.
FREE ESTIMATES: We’ll help you determine
which trees are right for your project, and provide you with free,
no-obligation estimates. This is often accomplished by e-mail and
phone. Where necessary, we will send our Arborist out to
review the project (no charge). More information
We’re conveniently located
just 15 minutes north of Woodinville. We’d be happy to have you out.
We don't keep regular retail hours; instead we set up appointments so that
we can focus on your project--we look at photos and plans with you, and
drive you around the farm and look at the tree options.
We don’t require any
money “up front”—you only pay when the job is completed (unusual exceptions
to this are special projects, lengthy “holds” on trees, or large Restoration jobs). Be careful of
contractors asking for “up front” money.
When we plant your trees,
we include staking (if necessary), transplanting fertilizer, and an
easy-to-use watering system that hooks into your garden hose. More
We also give a one year Warranty on trees we plant, for no additional

“Care of Your Trees” section of our website, and we're available to answer
any questions you have after your trees are planted.

We are a registered Washington State contractor (License Number: NURSEL*956J1).
Be sure to hire a
registered contractor -- to go to the Department of Labor &
Industries website to check a contractor's registration,
here. As it says
there: "Unregistered contractors carry no bond or insurance to
protect consumers. Consumers can face serious issues if anything goes
wrong on a job." These liability risks are in addition to
fraud, poor workmanship, worthless warranties, etc.
Most important of all is
what our customers think of us:
"I am really pleased with your work. You saved me several
thousand dollars, steered me away from trees that wouldn't work, provided
healthy and beautiful trees, did a great job planting them, and did everything
on time and on schedule. You can quote me." Jo, Vashon Island
"Our privacy bank of trees has done nothing but grow well
into maturity. Our back yard and deck area is totally private and the 10
trees your team planted [in 2005] are rich, leathery and dark green. We
remark on them every day it seems. Please include me in any of your
"Testimonials" as you would be hard pressed to find a more satisfied
Jim, Port Orchard
"For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape
purchase I’ve ever made." Jeff, Seattle
"Michael, I just wanted to pass along a note to tell you how thrilled I am with
the trees. The effect they have brought to our new courtyard in the front
of our home here in Seattle has exceeded my expectations!" Chip Hanauer, Hydroplane Driver--Click Here
to see his project.
"I work in customer service so I know good service when I
experience it and you have my top rating. I would definitely recommend you to
anyone who needs new landscaping. Thanks again.” Carol, Camano Island
"By the way, the trees were a great privacy feature when we sold the last
house! We now have a much larger space . . "
Katherine, Fall City
“My compliments to your crew. We’ve had a lot of contractors
working on our house recently and we’ve seen the entire range; and your guys
were excellent. The trees make things look so much better—I started smiling as
soon as I saw them going in."
Holly, Queen Anne
"You guys are the best nursery I've ever done business with! And I
have dealt with a few. You did what you said you would, on time with attention
to detail rarely found. From the beginning of the quote process all the way
through to the last detail you made it easy. And you work to ensure that the
trees will thrive after planting with detailed advice, a complementary
irrigation system, and a website filled with useful information. Most nurseries
will just dump off the goods and tell you best of luck, put some water on them.
You provide a quality product that sets you apart. Your crew was friendly,
polite and operated as a well organized team. I would recommend you without
hesitation! Thanks for doing a great job!” Ryan, Buckley
"We can not believe how beautiful your trees are. The privacy is
unbelievable. If you ever need a testimonial let us know. Our yard
is perfect! We sit there and say "my oh my”! Suzanne, Tacoma
"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've
