Warranty on trees and shrubs planted by Marcum's Nursery, is one year from the date the tree/shrub is planted. Warranties are not transferable. WE DO NOT REPLACE ANNUAL PLANTS OR ANYTHING PLANTED IN CONTAINERS. WE DO NOT WARRANTY THE FOLLOWING TREES: Spruce, Cherry, Plum, Italian Cypress, Palm, Vanderwolf Pine, Japanese Cedar, Weeping Alaskan Cedar, White Pine, Dogwood, Japanese Maple.

If there are questions or concerns on trees/shrubs planted by Marcum's Nursery, please inform us when the concern arises. We will work to diagnose the problem and get it corrected. If it is determined that a replacement tree/shrub is necessary, we will schedule the replacement at a time that gives the replacement tree/shrub the best chance of survival. We will replace the tree/shrub with no additional charge for labor if the tree/shrub dies within the first four (4) months of planting. After the first four (4) months, the initial cost of labor will be assessed to replant the tree/shrub. If we feel the tree/shrub has a chance to survive and begin growing as a healthy tree/shrub, an extension can be made to the warranty at that time. If the tree/shrub is dormant when planted, we guarantee the tree/shrub to begin growing as a healthy tree/shrub in the spring. 

Marcum's Nursery recommends moving tree straps every three (3) months to keep the straps from girdling the tree. Remove tree stakes one year after planting of tree.


Our warranty does not cover trees/shrubs that fail to survive because of neglect, fire, wind, hail, flooding, freeze, chemicals or any natural disaster that occurs beyond our control. Neglect includes failure to water in periods of drought, over watering, insect infestation or disease. We do not warranty trees/shrubs if the planting site has been altered (For example: inserting PVC tubes into the ground for watering, or raising the level of the soil around the trunk of the tree). 

Our warranty does not cover any labor or repair work to existing underground lines that were damaged and NOT marked prior to our landscaping installation. These underground lines include but are not limited to the following: sprinkler and sprinkler heads, cable, phone, irrigation lines, or any other utility lines.

Please Note: All balances are due on the date of installation. The warranty may be revoked at the discretion of Marcum's Nursery if there is a remaining balance after date of installation.

Our goal and purpose is to keep our customers happy. Our warranty has always been in favor of our customer, and we will strive to continue our goal of customer satisfaction. If you have questions regarding your Plant Warranty or the care of your tree/shrub, please call.
