The buds awaken from winter dormancy in mid April – late May and leaf fall occurs in early October. Please note if purchasing these trees between Nov-May that they may not have come into leaf yet.

Please note: Trees purchased between the months of Oct – Apr may be losing or have already dropped their leaves due to the fact they are deciduous. Many of the trees we sell are single stemmed and therefore may look a little bare during these months. Once spring arrive the foliage will return and new growth will appear.
