General Information

Terms of Service

Mendocino Maples Nursery has made all possible efforts to provide accurate information including photographs on this site (mendocinomaples.com). By visiting and using mendocinomaples.com, you accept these conditions below.

Plant Availability

We propagate approximately 2000 maples each season. By offering trees that we propagate it creates a juggling act that makes it hard to stock hundreds of each selection. But this allows us to know the source of each tree we sell. Overall, we try to grow an adequate number of each variety for the season to keep our customers satisfied and coming back year after year. We have thousands of maples in various sizes ranging from 1 gallon to 25 gallon but the availability of most plants are limited. We use a computerized inventory system that is fairly reliable, however plants may expire or be sold and evade an update in the computer system.

Ordering

If you prefer ordering by phone you can call us at 707.397.5731.

If you cannot accommodate an immediate planting date,  we can hold your plants here right up until May.

We will ship your plants approximately 2 weeks after confirmation of your order or sooner.

Substitutions

We will not make substitutions on your order without your prior permission.

Shortages/Refunds

We make every effort to completely fill your order, however this is not always possible. Credit card orders are charged at the time of purchase.  If you are due a refund you can expect a check payment by mail with shipment of your order.

Sales Tax

Under the California Sales and Use Tax Act we are required to collect sales tax on all  sales made in California. Deliveries to out of state customers are exempt. The law requires us to presume that all sales are taxable unless exempt status is established.

Two-year trees are in one gallon pots and are a bit taller and have more developed roots and branches. These maples have gone through at least 2 years of growing since they were grafted. They are larger in size that the 1 year trees and may range from 12-20 inches in grafted size depending on the cultivar.

These maples have gone through at least 3 years of growing since they were grafted.
