Ordering from ACN
What do I need to know when ordering trees?
You may order trees online or by calling one of our sales associates during normal business hours. Due to the nature of our business, some items may not be available for delivery at the desired time. We make every effort to substitute similar varieties when requested. We assure you that your order will receive our careful attention.
How old/mature are your trees?
Our fruit trees are all 2-year old, bare root trees. Average size of our trees at shipment is 4-5' in height, 1/2-5/8" in caliper/diameter.
Do I need to consider cross pollination before ordering fruit trees?
Most fruit trees do require cross pollination to yield fruit. Apple trees should be cross-pollinated, but bloom time is not as critical, as many apple varieties have overlapping bloom times. In situations where only a few apple varieties are planted, check the apple pollination chart to make sure bloom times coincide. Peach, nectarine and tart cherry trees are self-fruitful and do not require cross-pollination. Most plum, apricot, pear and sweet cherry varieties do require cross pollination. A minimum of two different varieties is required for proper pollination. Also keep in mind that apricot, plum, cherry and peach bloom ahead of apple and in turn are more subject to crop damage or loss due to spring frost damage.
Why do I need to give a daytime phone number?
Our office hours are 7am - 5pm Monday through Friday. At times, generally during shipping season, we may need to contact customers. We have had to contact customers in the past due to incorrect shipping addresses, bad credit card information, tree shortages, variety substitutions etc. Most importantly, if problems arise during plant transit, a daytime phone number can save valuable delivery time.
