Delivery & Tree Planting

We Deliver and Plant

Humber Nurseries understands that your time is very valuable. That is why we strive to be your one-stop shopping experience. We offer services such as landscape design and installation, so you can enjoy the results without the ‘heavy lifting’. If you would enjoy doing the planting, but can’t fit that tree or beautiful collection of shrubs in your Honda civic, we can also deliver your material, large or small. Why not sit back, relax and let us help you fulfill your landscaping dreams.


We deliver throughout the year. All deliveries are considered tailgate or curbside only, unless other arrangements have been made. The customer assumes complete responsibility and risk for deliveries made past the curb line, such as on lawns or driveways.

We will always do our best to meet your planting or delivery scheduling requirements, when you indicate AM or PM preferred. However, scheduling conflicts may prevent us from being able to fulfill your specific request.

Delivery Charges

(HST Extra)

Our minimum delivery charge is $55 for any plant or hard good. Humber Nurseries uses your Postal Code to determine the delivery price that is charged. For delivery locations outside our minimum delivery charge Zone, a distance surcharge will apply. Please refer to GM1125 to find which zone pertains to yourself. Hard good products may have an additional charge depending on weight and size of individual items. For nursery stock orders, a delivery charge can only be provided once the material has been selected. Due to rising fuel costs a fuel surcharge may be implemented at any time throughout the year without notice.

Delivery charges are for services provided and are not refundable and are not covered under our guarantee. When a delivery charge was paid on the original order, a new delivery charge will apply if any plant is being replaced under the terms of our guarantee and requires re-delivery.

Deliveries that come direct from our suppliers, Bestway, Gott Stone, Navascape, Permacon, Rinox, Triple H, and Zander Sod, are charged on an individual basis, depending on your location and the order that is placed. Please visit our store or call us to quote the product that you require.


Hard goods such as rocks, large fountains, etc. that are delivered on a skid are front yard delivery only, within crane reach or curb line. The first skid will have a minimum charge of $95.00 and each skid after that will be $25.00.

Due to rising fuel costs, a fuel charge may be implemented at any time throughout the year, without notice.

Deposit on Pallets

Products shipped on Bestway, Gott Stone, Navascape, Permacon, Rinox or Triple H pallets require a deposit on each pallet. A credit is given on the return of these pallets in good condition. The responsibility for the return of the pallet rests solely with the buyer. In order to receive the credit, pallets must be returned by December 31 of the year in which the product was purchased.


Whether you want one potted tree planted or you entire yard landscape, Humber Nurseries can offer years of professional experience and expertise. We will plant throughout the season, as long as the ground is workable.

Planting Charges

(HST Extra)

Planting charges are a one-time fee for services provided and are not refundable. However, when a planting charge was paid on the original purchase, it is our policy to re-install without charge, any plant being replaced under the terms of our guarantee. This re-installation will be at the discretion of Humber Nurseries and in certain cases a new planting charge may be necessary, if out of our travel area (Zone) or if planting site or conditions have changed. Please visit to see which zone pertains to yourself via postal code.

Due to rising fuel costs, a fuel charge may be implemented at any time throughout the year without notice. For Delivery and Planting Charges see pamphlet GM1122.

Call Before You Dig

Humber Nurseries is unable to begin any planting or landscape project without an “Ontario One Call” utilities locate being completed. This is a free service. Locates are valid for 30 days from the day the customer calls “Ontario One Call” and places the request. Direct calls to some utility providers may be required in certain Municipalities, where “Ontario One Call” does not cover. A copy of the locate report or the office clearance numbers must be provided prior to work commencing. Failure to request a locate or to provide a copy of the report, will result in a minimum charge of $250.00, separate and in addition to the planting charge. This is for loading, unloading, care of the plants and/or material, travel time, distance and for the landscape crew. The planting would then have to be rescheduled for a later date. The locate report can be faxed, emailed, left in your mail box, taped to your front door, given personally to our landscape foreman or dropped off at our front cash. Simply advise us of the most convenient way for you to provide the report. When sending Humber your locate, please reference your name, address and invoice number on the locate report.
