I have ordered many trees from Living Fences -- arborvitae, emerald, spruce, etc. My trees are healthy and thriving because I was careful about where I planted and how I watered afterward. The trees come direct from the farm, are full and beautiful and the prices are extremely reasonable for trees of this quality. The owner has always worked with me to place the trees and give me good prices for what I get. I highly recommend them.

This is trully the first review I have ever done. What frustration with Living Fences! I Purchased trees and installation. 8 of 10 trees rooted and look great. 2 trees did not root,and are growing crooked, despite adhering to warranty recommendations for irrigation. Pat, the owner, refused to stand behind the installation- saying the slope of my property was not conducive to the installation. Funny, the slope was not an issue when the trees were installed and 8 of the trees are fine. What is worse than the installation is the time wasted calling, the numerous unreturned phone calls, and trying to resolve reasonably. I would not recommend Living Fences.

Made an appointment with them to come out to my house and provide a quote. The person never showed up and never called. I left a voice mail for them after and, a week later, still no call. I'll pass...

Whatever you do, don't order trees from these people. The warranty they heavily advertise is a marketing gimmick. I ordered five 14ft Cryptomeria. I paid to have them install an irrigation system (as required for the warranty) and I even paid extra to have someone hook it up to an automatic timer. I watered per their instructions, but the trees died over the summer and they refuse to replace them. They claim I didn't water them, but I have the water bill to prove it, plus the trees grew almost 4 feet which proves that I have been watering them. An arborist checked them and supports me. I really love the trees and was hoping to order more, but given that they don't honor their warranty, I will not be ordering from them. I have called several other nurseries and they say that this company is absolutely notorious for not honoring their warranty. I wish I had known that before I used them!

After receiving a quote from Living Fences, I searched various nurseries in the area and found their pricing to be very reasonable. The installed price was competitive with Pike's "uninstalled" price. Pat was very professional and friendly and offered good advice in the tree selection.

These guys are fantastic. They delivered exactly as promised and transformed the look of our landscape almost instantly. You can't go wrong working with Pat and the guys at Living Fences. They are honest, dependable and really easy to work with.

We purchased 11 trees from Pat at Living Fences. He worked with us to choose the best trees for our needs as well as best locations. Pat came and worked alongside his crew and professionally installed all the trees. The trees were of the best quality, these trees cannot be found at a local nursery. They went above and beyond in all areas. We would definately use them again and recommend them to anyone and we are very particular.
