Seedling Pricing & Shipping

Orders: Wholesale/Retail

Urban Forestry’s nursery operation is set up to provide wholesale seedling material to the restoration industry, landowners, and commercial growers of larger stock. However, we do recognize that smaller consumers would like to have access to seedling material and hard-to-find species that we carry. So, we attempt to satisfy all groups with our tiered pricing and minimum order requirement. The tiered pricing is broken into two categories: contract and speculative.

If you are a wholesale buyer that desires a custom grow and you place a 25% deposit on the order, we can do the propagation and can provide you with quality seedlings at the time you need them for your project or crop rotation. A contract grow will provide a 5-10% savings.

If you don’t have the good fortune of knowing the future, we do produce most of the species listed in our catalogue on a speculative basis. These species become available on a regular basis throughout the year. We can notify you of our newly available stock through our “Fresh Seedlings” emails. Contact us to have your name added to the mail list.

To place an order or receive a quote, contact us with your species list and quantities. Let us know whether you would like to pick up the order at the nursery or have the material shipped. If you wish to pick up at the nursery, we can quote you the final price over the phone or in an email. If shipping is desired, provide us with your contact and shipping information. We will then determine the best way to ship and obtain a quote from that shipper (USPS, UPS, FedEx, OTR, or our vehicle) before we quote you the sale amount. Please see the “Nursery Pick Up & Shipping” section for additional details. Wholesale buyers should provide a signed and dated copy of their current “Florida Annual Resale Certificate for Sales Tax” for our records.


Our minimum order amount is $20.00 whether you get 1 seedling or more. Our tiers are based on total quantity ordered. Note that grasses are priced separately form other stock.

Nursery Pick Up & Shipping

Customers wishing to pick up seedlings at the nursery are welcome to do so. Once you place an order, it can take us some time to fill. The time is required because we will select and grade each seedling to be placed into the trays. Once you have determined the species and numbers of the plants you would like, give us a call or email us with that information. Based on the numbers, personal schedule, and your seedling criteria we can set up a firm time for pick up. Seedlings for pick up are provided at our front gate and payment is required at that time.

Customers are also welcome to have their seedlings shipped. For smaller orders, we use either UPS or USPS. Smaller orders (generally less than 51 seedlings) will be removed from the tray and bagged so that they can be shipped in a compact form. Larger orders can be delivered by our vehicles, UPS, USPS, or an OTR trucking company that specializes in handling nursery stock along the east coast and around the southeast. We look to provide the lowest cost shipping for each individual order. Larger orders can be shipped “bagged”, which generally reduces shipping charges, or “in the tray”, which provides for more holding time after the seedlings arrive. Payment for the order and shipping costs is required prior to shipment.
