Delivery We are not offering delivery at this time.

Live stakes, poles, fascines & brush See our live stakes and cuttings webpage for more information. We custom collect live stakes etc. from wild sites for each order and require at least two weeks advance notice to harvest the material. The minimum live stake order is $30. All stakes are priced by species, diameter, and length; standard size for most live stakes is 4' long by 1/2" - 1 1/2 in diameter. If you change, reduce or cancel live stakes orders, balance in full is due for all material that has already been harvested - once we cut it, you own it. There is a 40% off-season surcharge on stakes etc. May - August. Review Terms for live stakes and cuttings before placing an order.

Plant installation We currently have installation and maintenance crews based in Olympia and Portland/Vancouver. Our service area extends roughly from Everett, Washington to Oregon City, Oregon, and from the west side of the mountains to the Pacific coast. For larger jobs at more distant locales, our installation crews may be available to relocate for the duration of the project. Visit our Installation and Maintenance webpage for more information.
