I ordered directly from Van Well Nursery March 2012. They were very helpful on the phone and gave me good information about ordering my apple trees. Their website is very informative also. My 4 apple tree's arrive as they told me (week of April 1st for Michigan). The tree's are bareroots packed in mulch. Healthy and moist. They are approx 4 feet tall and were approx $14.95 ea.+ shipping. Great instructions on planting and watering. So far they are doing good and I would definitely order from them again and looking for other apple tree's for next year. (They were sold out of the other types I wanted for this yr)

Update 1/27/13 My 4 Apple tree's are doing very well and I am so satisfied I just ordered more... 2 peach, 1 prune, 1 Granny Smith. When ordering, they are so kind and helpful. Thx.

|Couldn't be happier with ordering process! I found this company through the watchdog. They have a good selection on different types of rootstocks. While they are obviously geared to commercial growers they made me feel like a valued customer! One of their sales specialists, Joe, made recommendations on rootstock for my area and suggested a few varieties I didn't have in my order. What is even better, their prices for small orders are reasonable (15 dollars per tree) and their minimum order for a price drop is much lower than other growers - at 15 trees it drops to 10 dollars per tree!!! I get to pick when they will ship. I look forward to posting updates on this grower!

|These folks are the best- THE BEST!!!- provider of fruit trees I have found to date. Their trees are large, well-grown, healthy, and they come on a variety of dwarfing rootstocks as well as in standard sizes. The trees are well packed, ship promptly and the people at Van Well respond quickly to emails and phone calls.
I wish I had more room to expand my orchard so I could buy more trees from this fine family-run business.

|First class++++ The trees were huge and supreme service.
Would not order from stark after here. Its also a family run nursery which is another plus in my book.

|I wanted a dwarf Cameo apple tree & found VanWell nursery was the only one I found to have it available on dwarf rootstock. The tree came last spring in very good condition & well packaged. The root system was fantastic! This spring that tree is loaded with blossoms; hopefully the fruit will be as good as I had hoped for.
I would recommend this nursery again ... not cheap but I got the quality that I paid for!

|I just received two peach trees from them. They were in excellent shape, well wrapped and very tall. Before that the customer service was excellent, they helped me out with my small order like I was a commercial grower. The best part was the price which included shipping and handling. I will be ordering from them again.

|Purchased two trees directly from their offices in Wenatchee - flowering crab apple and a peach.
Cheap, hardy and healthy trees. If I wasn't into growing heirloom apples instead of the commercial varieties, I'd be more than happy to buy more trees from them :-)

|I have ordered several things from this company in a couple of orders and they have great products, fantastic customer service and even good prices. They can even guide you to what is needed to pollinate their trees for the largest harvests.

|I received 4 cherry trees from them about a month ago. They were helpful in answering my questions and I got exactly what I asked for in great shape. All are doing well and I plan to order from them again. They allow you to choose when they will ship and that's when they sent them.

|Have ordered several bare-root trees from this nursery over several years. The only problem is that there is little choice of rootstock, but you can order late if you forget in fall as is required by several suppliers. The trees were always good.
