After placing a somewhat late order and my first choice peach being sold out (Starfire) the staff there took the time to contact me by e-mail and also discuss a second choice (I picked Blazingstar, as I really wanted a Stellar series tree in the fairly early ripening window). Arrived with great roots, good caliper tree and nice straight trunk. The tree got to me in two business days, in perfect condition. Packing was generous and the roots were damp and well wrapped. It seems to be breaking dormancy right now.

To say this is an impressive nursery is a vast understatement.

We ordered four fruit trees (pear, peach, cherry, nectarine) last year. The service was outstanding. The office staff answered all of my many questions (multiple calls) in a friendly and professional manner. I ordered late in the season and changed my order -- Adams's staff never seemed flustered by my indecision. The order was delivered to CT by Adams and well packaged.

As of April 22nd, the plum tree from Adams is starting to push out a few leaves above the root stock. The one cherry tree that wasn't doing so well was starting to push out a few leaves right above the root stock, but it looks like something came along an nibbled off some of the leaves. Either way it looks like at least 25 out of 26 trees have survived.
Conversely, while the Adams trees are improving, three of the WIllis trees are showing serious signs of stress and I'm doubting whether or not they are going to survive much longer.
On December 7th, 2010, Wolfcastle added the following:
After a full growing season, all of the trees from Adams are doing very well and I am looking forward to picking fruit in another year or two. Some of the bare root $12 trees from Willis are now larger than the $30 potted tree I bought at a garden center a few months before I planted the trees from Adams.
Overall, I've been so happy with their trees that I've recently placed another order for 100+ trees from Adams.
On February 3rd, 2012, Wolfcastle added the following:
Despite my mediocre gardening abilities, every single one of the ~130 trees I've ordered from Adams is doing well. The one cherry tree that died back to just above the graft in 2010 has shot up and become a nice looking feathered maiden. A couple of the trees in their second growing season now have trunk diameters of over three inches.
I would highly recommend Adams County Nursery to anyone looking for trees, especially if you can put together an order of 25 trees or more.

In 2004 I started replanting a 100 year old orchard with 5.95 ebay trees. I bought 200 trees to start with. I got 2' wips and about 1/3 have survived. In 2007 I bought 32 trees from ANC and 5 trees that they didn't have somewhere else. I asked for the trees to be shipped on april 15th and they were. when I compared Anc trees to the 5 other trees I did not even bother to plant the other 5. One ANC tree failed to leaf. I called them and asked if I had to ship the tree back for credit (UPS both ways would be more than the tree) or could I just get a credit on my next order. they said no problem. I cut the tree off about 3" above the root and when I did fall mowing saw a 18" shoot above the graft. Last year I picked 20 peaches off it and this year thinned to about 50. Since then I only buy from ANC if they don't have it I don't need it. Of the 300+ trees since then not one has failed to leaf. I have lost some to voles, deer ect. . I will say order early last year I waited till Dec and did not get 3 of my order of 100.

The trees were delivered on the day I asked. They were packed correctly and arrived in a box 6' by 2' by 2' giving them plenty of room to prevent damage. The grafting was excellent. All of the trees have shown leaves after planting and appear to be vigorous and healthy. They clearly accept retail orders as I only ordered 10 trees.

All of the trees produced leaves and are growing vigorously. I remain very impressed by this company.

Customer service is great and they will take time to help you pick the varieties and rootstock suitable for your area. The quality of the trees is excellent.

The best nuresry I have ever delt with. I bought a peach tree from them called saturn. A year later they sent a letter saying there was a mixup and the peach tree they sent was not saturn. They sent me the correct tree free and paid for the shipping.

I ordered a single tree. It was delivered on the day I requested. Good size, fully dormant, good roots, packed right.

Experience, so far, has been fabulous. Please see my other comments for Stark Bros and Autumn Ridge and Arbor Day, all of which were bad. Stark Bros used to be a pretty solid company, but I had to demand a refund of 800 dollars because the 40 or so nut trees I ordered last year all died or were midgets with little growth.

I ordered 25 fruit trees late last year and picked a delivery date for the beginning of April. While placing my order, I was asked about location, zone, soil type and suggestions were offered if another variety would do better for my planting conditions. They made sure I had the pollinators that were necessary for my order. My ordering experience made me feel that the staff wasn’t out to just make a sale. They want you to be a satisfied customer.

I ordered 100 apple trees from ACNursery for spring 2007 planting. I got some in the ground quickly and had to heel some in until I could get to the rest. As I walked the trees in 2008 I realized I didn't lose a single one. And the Japanese beetles strip them bare in mid-summer! I just ordered another large order of trees.

Spectacular to deal with, prompt personal emails, too. Superb trees! Don't expect to order and have shipment within a week, they ship huge masses of trees seasonally and based upon your planting-zone but they are open to your own needs, if you feel your zone doesn't fit their schedule.

I purchased 2 bare root apple trees. They are much larger and more mature than I had expected. Well packed and hydrated. I only wish my plum tree had been available through them,.

One of the best companies I have ever dealt with - in plants or any of the mail order vendors. Excellent communication, excellent stock - large, clean trees well formed, well grown and a company that is a pleasure to deal with. I was able to order by e-mail, that provided a detailed response, we worked out alternates varieties or rootstocks for shortages; the trees had the Fastest shipping time of any stock I've purchase in the last several years - and they shipped early in the week; so I could plant on the weekend. They were both the lowest cost and the best Value of the 60+ apple trees and 5 vendors I have been purchasing from this year. They normally supply large orders of one tree but they did an excellent job on my order, smaller (2 dozen) of one tree each. They carried a comprhensive variety of modern, eating apples and some crabs/pollenators also.

My experience with this company was excellent! The informed staff member helped me choose the rootstock I needed for my land and zone. He also patiently assisted me in choosing the white nectarine based on my needs and which Gala would be a good polinator for the Pink Lady. They shipped in April, right when they said they would. My dwarf trees were all 4-5' tall and in great condition! The wrapping was also superb.

great service, trees, rootstock choice, replacement when required and assistance. Fine selection and order arived in outstanding condition. I ordered varrious apples, pears, peaches cherries and pluots. they have done fabulously. Even the sweet cherry(lapin) is growing(12ft in 2 years) in my less than Ideal heavy dry clay. Oh and fast service on my mail orders.

I have purchased a number of trees, apples, pluots, peaches and cherries. ACN is and outstanding sourse of trees. They typically give you a choice of rootstock to match you soil and needs along with great customer service. Though the price may seem high it is right in line with the other venders due to shipping being included in selling price. If I had more land I would certianly buy more.

I live in Utah, a long way from Pennyslvania. Yet, despite my fears of planing eastern stock in the west, I was very very pleased with the tree stock I received. Their selection of white peaches is the biggest, best, finest stock in the U.S.a. I would give them the highest recommendaiton available. The highlight of my winter is looking at their catalogue and browsing the wonderful cultivars Adams county has. I love their stock and you will too!!!

Ordered a nectarine last spring. Very friendly and helpful on the phone. I ordered rather late, but the bare-root tree was in fine shape and grew well all summer. A group of us will be ordering 80+ trees in the next couple weeks, I'll let you know how it goes. Very nice web-site and catalog, which includes fruiting calendar for all the varieties of trees they carry. Worth the catalog for that alone.

Bought 8 additional trees. All were bare root and in good condition. All are now growing well and look good (~5 weeks, May 16, 2002). Good stuff.

Over the past six years I have ordered 9 apple trees from Adams County Nursery. They are primarily a nursery for commercial growers. Their catalog has excellent information on varieties, rootstocks (large selection), and orchard care. The trees have been the best I have purchased anywhere. Prices are reasonable at $15.95 (1999) with delivery in lots of 3 or more. Their patented variety, Ginger Gold, just might be my favorite apple. It has a little more zip than a Golden, lots of crunch, and has a smooth waxy finish. I would highly recommend this nursery to the home gardener and hobbyist.

Over the last two seasons I have planted 10 trees/10 varieties of apples on M-9 ordered from Adams County Nursery. They have a nice mix of standard and modern commercial varieties. Their trees are nicely grown and shipped, and I was flattered and pleased that knowledgeable CAN staff, not order takers, got on the phone so I could pick their brains about cultivars, as if I were an important account instead of a small-time hobbyist. I certainly will be ordering from them in the future.

Without question, the quality of their fruit trees is the finest that I have ever ordered from any source. In addition, the variety is excellent, and - the apples are offered on several rootstocks to allow size selection and climate and soil matching. The catalog is one of the most informative of any mail-order company, in any area.
