Tree Sale, 2016!

The annual BioGardener Tree Sale begins!  We’re a little behind this year, so we’re putting the pedal down to get trees in before the fast-closing seasonal window.  The deets:

1.  Choose Among Trees From the Official List, Including Quantity and Size.

  • Mexican White Oak – The fastest growing of our Oaks and resists Oak Wilt.  Plant at least 20′ from other shade trees or buildings.
    15-gallon – $100
    30-gallon – $240

  • Bur Oak – Slower growing shade tree, but worth it especially if you plan to live a long time.  Acorns are great for flour in case of apocalypse, and also make for cool craft times.  Plant at least 20-25′ from other shade trees or buildings.
    15-gallon – $105
    45-gallon – $350

  • Mesquite – Be a rebel.  It’s a weed if your a South Texas rancher but a bullet proof tree in harsh landscapes.  Good for wildlife.  Full sun and give it some room.
    30-gallon – $215
  • Cork Oak – Yes, Cork Oak.  I’ve only seen two of these in my life and they’re probably a million years old but man they’re cool looking.  My hunch is they like water so be aware.
    5-gallon – $55
  • Fruit Trees – Almost all of these are 2-3′ bare-root whips, which start out as wispy sticks but grow quickly into food producers.  Peach.  Pear.  Plum.  Apple.  Fig.  Apricot.  Persimmon.  Pomegranate.  Pecan.  Almost all are grafted onto hardy, relatively disease resistant root stock tolerant of our alkaline soils.  Some need to two varieties and other self-pollinate, look it up or ask.
    $50/each for 3+ trees
  • Crape Myrtles – I am no fan of Crapes but it’s probably good therapy to go against personal preference sometimes.
    15-gallon Natchez – $105
    30-gallon Purple – $180
  • Redbuds –  The native buglers of Austin spring.
    15-gallon – $110
    30-gallon – $250

2.  Email Jeremy your address and list of trees sooner than later, but before FEBRUARY 24, 2016.

3.  Choose the spots for your new trees.  Use whatever you have laying around so we know what to plant and where.  We may visit to inspect the placement and make any minor adjustments if needed, and replace your marker with a labeled pin flag.  If you don’t like our re-placement, just re-re-place the flag, life if too short to worry about small stuff.

4.  We will begin installing immediately.  We will plant in an order that makes the most sense to us.  All trees will be mulched and probably not staked because it’s usually not needed; fruit trees will get a little organic booster amendment at time of planting.  As always, there is no warranty on trees, since we can’t be responsible for anything that happens to them after planting.  See a new tree care guide here –

5.  Take Charge.  Sorry, but we just don’t have the time to give personal consultations on selection/placement unless the price is right, but hopefully, there is enough information on our Blog or other websites, including Tree Folks – – to make an informed decision.  Still, any emailed questions will receive a response as quickly and completely as possible.

Thanks for planting!
