If you haven’t visited the garden center lately, you are missing some really BIG things.  When I say big, I mean of course our awesome selection of over 50-75 large and unique specimen trees. I feel like a little kid at Christmas leading up to the days our specimen trees arrive at the garden center.  I always look forward to the looks on my co-worker’s faces asking, “wow what’s that?” as we unload these unique trees.

You will see all sorts of trees from big to small, but don’t let the sizes fool you.  Just because you stand above them doesn’t mean they aren’t large! We’ve got a dwarf umbrella pine that is only three feet tall, but probably old enough to go to college!  If you’re in the need of something big, come check our monster 18’ tall weeping Alaskan cedar specimen; what a majestic tree!  Right about now you’re probably asking yourself, “how would I get something like that to my house?”  Van Wilgen’s offers a number of services from onsite delivery to expert installation services.  Let us do the work for you.  We also understand that these large trees are an investment.  In order to ensure your success, we are now offering a 2-year warranty with the purchase of our Van Wilgen’s Success Kit, which includes our Premium Planting Mix, and either our Jump Start starter fertilizer or Van Wilgen’s Organic Root Boost.
