Balled B&B Tree Information | TN

Large Tree Information

We have one section of large trees. These are Machine Dug with wire baskets, called B&B Or Balled and Burlapped Trees & Shrubs.

These trees cannot be handled (over 1" caliper) without heavy machinery. They are 400 Lbs plus in weight per tree. You must have machine augers and skid steers to unload these trees.

Shipping Large Trees

It would be best if you put on these B&B Trees large flatbed semis. Shipping is the same whether you order a full load (see how many trees will fit per truck to see if it's feasible) or ten trees due to shipping charges being on a "per mile" basis.

Customer Must Obtain Their Quote and Choose Their Own Freight Company.

There's a lot of independent freight companies you can call for a freight quote. We do not recommend any but C&W Trucking (931-692-3798). They are local, know what they are doing, and are good at it. You can choose anyone you want. Call them and get your freight rate, work out the payment with them, and give us a call to let us know who you're using, and we will load them. Please have the carrier call us 24 hours ahead of time to schedule a time. We load between the hours of 8- 2 pm daily.

You can also get a close estimate by going to mapquest.com and type in your zip and our FOB loading zip 37301 and get the mileage. The average rate is $2.70 per mile. You can get an estimate also without calling but make the call before finalizing the order to be sure.

Loading Your Stock For Delivery After Orders Are Placed

We will dig your stock within ten days after orders are finalized and prepaid. We load for free and tarp securely for superior protection.

How We Prepare Our Trees For Shipping

All trees are hand graded and specimen quality. If they are crooked or swayed, we will not dig them. We use trunk wraps before digging to keep our heavy equipment from damaging the trunks; we dig root ball sizes recommended by the American Nurseryman Standards and Secure the root balls with concave heavy-duty wire baskets. We also tie the tops super tight and secure before loading. These steps protect the tops, trunks, and root balls.

Estimate of How May Trees Will Fit on a Semi

Estimate of How Many Trees Will Fit On A Trailer Load

Below is a schedule estimate of how many trees will fit per load-Delivery is based per mile, so order full loads to save money. We can not guarantee a certain amount per load if you order more than we can fit on a truck, and they are pre-dug. It's the buyer's responsibility to pick up, so order a few less if they all won't load on the truck.

Evergreen Trees are more bulky than deciduous, so please consider this when ordering full loads and order a few less.
