Please read all the requirements for installation of trees and shrubs.

  • Online purchases must be paid in full at the time of order.
  • Machine Installation requires at a minimum: 8 foot or 2.5 metre access with a clear flat path to installation spot(s).
  • Installation may be changed to HAND installation if it turns out there is not adequate room for a machine installation.  Hand installations vary in pricing depending on tree size.  Please contact us for a hand install quote.
  • We do not move plants into a previously dug hole. This would be considered an installation and installation fees will apply.
  • Customers MUST have all underground utilities located prior to installation. Failure to have underground utilities located in a timely manner may result in delays/rescheduling of your installation.
  • The planting locations of the trees must be clearly marked with the pin flags provided to you by Countryside before our installers arrive to do your installation.
  • Countryside is not liable for any damages incurred on a customer’s property during the hand/machine installation. This includes but is not limited to damage to grass/sod, driveway, sidewalk/pathway/patios, edging, mulch, irrigation or any unmarked line or underground utility.
  • Upon site inspection, Countryside reserves the right to refuse service.
  • If our installation crews arrive at your planting site and are unable to complete the installation you may be charged a Restocking Fee and will have to pay for an additional delivery on your rescheduled installation.
  • If machine access is unavailable or there is a line conflict discovered after purchase of preorder items a credit will be issued to be used towards alternate plant material. As all Pre-Order items are grown/ dug specifically for the orders at reduced pricing we cannot issue refunds.
  • If additional soil is required for planting there will be a charge payable by customer. Our office must know prior to the day of your install so it can be added to your order and delivered at the same time.
  • Additional services such as staking trees, watering and drip-line irrigation installation are not included in our installation rates.
  • The completion of our online installation questionnaire is required prior to confirming and scheduling your installation.
  • Installation of all Countryside Trees & Shrubs includes one fertiliser application at the time of planting.
