Terms & Conditions

Rare Tree Nursery is wholesale to the trade. We require a minimum order of $2,500. Please register to view pricing and availability. Registration requests are typically approved within 24 hours.

Shipping and Pricing:

All materials are priced and sold FOB Silverton, Oregon. Prices are subject to change without notice. Freight cost is not included in product pricing. If you would like us to assist you in securing trucking, we will make every effort to find you the most economical option available. Freight will be direct billed by the broker or C.O.D. While we make every effort to accurately estimate your order footage and weight prior to shipping, we take no responsibility for estimates varying from actual footage.

Container Sizes:

  • All containers are standard trade sizes, for example, a #3 container is what many people refer to as a “3-gallon” because the container is roughly 3 gallons by volume.

  • #1 containers (approximately 1 gallon) are released when they have pushed a minimum of 2 flushes of growth after grafting – if you require “retail ready” #1 containers, please let us know.

  • #2 and 3 containers are released when they have an appropriate height or width for the container size and have a minimum of 3 flushes of growth after grafting (in most cases more).


There is no minimum quantity per variety unless listed with a minimum. Few items have a minimum unless they are specials, liners or seedlings. If a minimum quantity of an item must be ordered, the quantity will be listed before the price. For example, a liner with a price shown as 5:$8.00 requires a minimum order of 5 units at $8.00 each.


For exceptionally large orders, Rare Tree Nursery may be able to offer a volume discount. The amount of eligible discount is determined on a case-by-case basis based on factors such as number of items purchased as well as customer purchase history. Please contact us to see if your order qualifies.

Purchase Terms:

We are happy to accept Visa, Mastercard or American Express. For orders paid by credit card, a 3.5% processing fee will be assessed. All order balances are due before shipment. Payment net 30 days is extended to customers with established credit following extensive review of a credit application including reliable nursery references and banking information. Please inquire to establish credit. Past due accounts are subject to a monthly service charge of 1.5% per month.


Due to conditions beyond our control, in the unlikely event that a portion of your order is not available, we will provide you with substitution options. We will not substitute varieties without customer consent. We do reserve the right to substitute a larger container size or a full grade higher at the same price without customer consent. We are not responsible for additional freight costs associated with substitutions of larger plant material.


All claims including – but not limited to – order shortages, damaged material, or unsatisfactory quality must be submitted via facsimile, standard mail, or electronic mail within five (5) days of receipt of material. Material damaged during transport must be reported on the Bill of Lading and submitted directly to the carrier. In all instances, liability is limited to the purchase price.
