I came across Hollow Creek Tree Farm when searching the internet. I purchased 20 Thuja "green giants" at the beginning of December for a Christmas gift for my husband. I received my order on time and the trees were in excellent conditions. My husband was shocked in a good way by the price and quality of the trees.I made one call to Hollow Creek and the young lady I talked to was very helpful. I have emailed Mike McCartha and his response was immediate. My trees have been in the ground close to 2 months surviving the Illinois winter. They still look as good as they did when we received them. I highly recommend Hollow Creek Tree Farm! I'm already planning my next order! M Hutson

I ordered 100 thuja trees from Hollow Creek Tree Farm. Ordered was delivered on time; and all trees arrived healthy and taller than promised. I am extremely pleased with Hollow Creek Tree Farm and will buy again from them soon.

I received 20 Carolina Sapphire and 10 Nellie Stevens Holly trees. All the trees arrived when promised and were well packed and in good shape. They always responded to emails promptly. I would recommend them and will do business with them again.

Last fall I contacted hollow creek to purchase some thuja trees, I was assured that these trees would grow in almost any atmosphere.Also they were immune to disease and bugs or insects.They never had a chance to be exposed to disease or insects,only living 6 mths.I purchased 75- 12 to 14 inch tall plants. I have 12 plants still alive with no growth.They were healthy when they arrived and I followed directions as I planted them, but later was told I should have bought taller trees.I would have gladly but it is now too late.After refusing to replace them I was told "if you dont believe our sales people you should find another place to buy your trees".I will NEVER buy from hollow creek tree farm again! I hope others will do the same so they are not called liars like I was. My name is RODNEY STANSELL,I live in Ga..

Wow. Rodney, you sure have cleaned up your language since we last corresponded!

Folks, out of all the customers we've had over the years, this is the only one I can remember to use expletives in his emails. We offered to replace his trees at cost and he refused, in a most profane way. That is when I suggested he try another vendor. It was not I that used the "L" word -never have, never will - but Mr. Stansell himself.

For a more accurate view of our integrity, please check our feedback on eBay where we have been selling since Jan 2005. (,

For the record, here is our guarantee: "After plants leave our nursery, growing & cultural conditions are no longer in our control. Therefore, the only guarantee we offer is that the trees will be healthy and vigorous upon arrival. If there is a problem at that time, we will do what it takes to make you happy.

"Others do offer a 1 year guarantee but often double the price to cover it and some make you jump through hoops to claim it - sending back the old plant, receipt, etc. Our goal is to offer a quality plant at a fair price."

Do not hesitate to call me with any questions are concerns. Mike McCartha, 1-800-761-3276

I recently ordered 50 Thuja Green Giants from Hollow Creek Tree Farm. All of the trees were healthy and as tall as stated. I made two phone calls there and each time it was answered by someone knowledgeble.

The trees have now been in the ground for about 2 months. Each one is already showing signs of new growth. Some have even added a inch or two of heighth.

I highly recommend this company.

I just want to say a few things about Hollow Creek Tree Farms. I recently bought 5 Thuja Green Giants from them and the experience was very positive from beginning to end. The plants arrived bigger than expected and very healthy--still in their own pots and with LOTS of roots! Also, the email correspondence was prompt and the one phone call I made to their toll free number was pleasant and courteous. If you're needing some great looking trees for sceens or hedges--this is the place to buy 'em!
