Pricing Fees

Fees & Pricing

Your purchase of installation includes delivery and is equal to the full retail value of your nursery stock purchase.  (Example: a $249.98 tree will cost $249.98 for delivery, installation, and a one-year guarantee).

Trees with a 4” trunk caliper or larger (big trees), or specimen evergreens and clump ornamental trees over 8’ will be assessed an additional 10% labor charge to cover additional equipment and labor needed to properly install such large plant material.

Minimum planting/labor fee is $150.00.  Planting locations more than 20 miles from our Des Plaines location will be assessed a $150.00 travel fee in addition to the labor charge.

Environmental Fee: 10% of the original price of plant material, minimum $35.00 up to a maximum of $100. Fee applies to Bio-Tone Starter Fertilizer and soil amendments as needed for quality root growth, shredded hardwood mulch applied to the new plant for water conservation, removal and disposal of debris, and recycling of topsoil and containers. This is a required fee for improved establishment of plants and to reduce replacement waste.
