Local Delivery and Planting

We are happy to help with your new tree, shrub, or perennial plantings. We charge half the cost of the plant for installation (ie: a $100 tree costs $50 to plant). If the plant is on sale, the installation cost is still half of the regular price.

Please also account for delivery rates when planning your installation. We charge for delivery if the plants are already on site.

"What should I do before the planting day?"
Be sure to have your planting site information ready. We will provide a stake for you to mark the location of where the plant is going. Please inform our team of any ledge, heavy clay, limited access, or other obstacles that can delay a planting.

"Should I call DigSafe?"
As the company installing and doing the work, we must call DigSafe. DigSafe locates public, underground utilities such as natural gas and public electric, water, and communications lines. They do not locate private utilities such as private electric or septic lines. Please indicate where any private utilties are before our team arrives to plant. Please ensure the area to be planted is clearly marked, or else DigSafe will mark with spray paint more than is needed.

"What is included when Horsford's plants?"
Horsford's calls DigSafe, does all of the heavy lifting and digging, plants accurately and skillfully, and stakes the tree if needed. We also lightly fertilize and mulch the tree if needed. Any additional labor aside from the planting must be discussed beforehand, and is charged at an hourly rate.
