We ship two ways. One is "Local Delivery". That means one, or more, of our crew members personally delivers your order in a Bay Gardens truck or van to your home. This option is only available in certain zip codes throughout NY, NJ & CT.
The other method is "Common Carrier Shipping". Only certain plants can be sent this way. Usually ones that are under 4 feet tall. When we ship this way, one of our crew members boxes up your order and then sends it to your home via UPS or FedEx.

Plants with listed heights (i.e. 4-5 ft) are measured from the top of the root ball to the top of the plant. Basically, what will be exposed out of the ground after planting. We do not count the root ball or container in the tree size.
Many of our plants come in the plastic Nursery Containers in which they are grown. These containers come in various sizes. Typically, the larger the container, the more mature and larger the plant is. The containers are measured by the "Gallon". More often than not, the larger the gallon size, the larger the plant.
