FAQ

How & when do I order?
In the Spring Tree Sale, seedlings can be ordered January 1 through mid-March. The Fall Reforestation Sale opens in September and runs while supplies last or until the first frost. You can mail in your order form and payment, place your order in person at the SCD office, or order online with credit/debit card. No fax and phone orders. Orders will not be processed without payment. Quantities are limited and orders are filled as they are received. 

How do I receive my seedlings?
We do not ship seedlings. For the Spring 2017 Sale, the distribution days are Friday, March 31 from 8am-5pm, and Saturday, April 1 (9am-1pm) at the SCD, 210 N Havana, Spokane WA 99202.In the Fall Sale, you must pick up your seedlings in mid-late October during the distribution days you arrange with the Forester. Early and late pickups are not allowed due to the availability of seedlings and the cost of seedling storage. Orders not picked up will be used by the SCD for various 
planting projects and any payment will be forfeited. 

What payment methods do you accept?
We now accept credit and debit cards! Place your order online at treesale.sccd.org. All major credit cards except American Express are accepted. Mail orders must be made with check. Walk-in orders are accepted in cash (exact change), check or credit/debit. M-Th from 8am-4:30pm. 

How big are the seedlings at the time of distribution?
The bareroot seedlings range in size from 3-24’’ tall, and unless otherwise indicated, are not potted and come in minimum bundles of five (5). Please call the SCD if you have any questions about the seedlings. 509-535-7274

What happens if my trees or shrubs die?
Due to environmental and other factors beyond our control, the SCD does not offer a guarantee on the survivability of the seedlings we sell, therefore refunds and/or rain checks will not be granted. If you have specific questions or concerns about your trees or shrubs, please call our Forestry department at 509-535-7274. Planting tips will be available during the distribution days, and our Forestry staff is always available to share their expertise. 

How do I cancel an order?
Cancellations must be made prior to March 9, 2017 for the Spring Sale, otherwise the deposit will be forfeited. To cancel an order, please call the SCD at 509-535-7274 or email: erica-johnson@sccd.org. 

How do I know that I will receive the species that I order?
You will receive an order confirmation/invoice one - two weeks prior to the distribution days; you can request a confirmation anytime after you have placed your order by calling 509-535-7274 or emailing treesale@sccd.org. Please contact the SCD as soon as possible if you notice an error on the invoice. Please bring the invoice with you to collect your trees. Due to factors beyond our control, there may be instances when a certain species ordered becomes unavailable. In this case, the SCD will contact you to notify you of your options. You will not be charged for seedlings you do not receive (unless you fail to pick up your trees on the distribution days). 

What about the deer? 
Our seedlings are scrumptious to deer. Deer have been known to rip freshly planted seedlings out of the ground. As the plants mature, they will be able to better survive browsing from deer and other animals. Until then, invest in “tree tubes” or otherwise protect your new plants.
