We will be shipping tree orders through November

or until the weather stays below freezing during the day.

We check the weather on the route the delivery truck will make too,

assuring you that your trees won't freeze on their way.

Davidsan's is the Japanese maple retailer

with the largest in-stock selection of trees in the U.S.

We have TWENTY-THREE (NO, MAKE THAT TWENTY-FOUR!!! TWENTY FIVE) TWENTY SIX greenhouses on our site, all organized for viewing! Plus new raised bed gardens, statuary and many outdoor larger trees available. We also have a one-acre lake and a shaded area so you can relax or take a break. There is a large parking area. It is a quiet and peaceful. We are extremely excited about our nursery. It is gorgeous and perfect in every way.

All our greenhouses are filled with rare JMs and other rare trees:

conifers, beech, extra hardy acers, franklinia, ginkgo, redbuds and more.

We have ALL SIZES.  One gallon and up to 45+ gallon size.

We can ship almost every tree up to 7 gallon size and some 10+ also.

Our 22 acre site, just west of Springfield, Illinois is changing all the time.

We have a one-acre pond (bring your fishing pole)

and we are constantly adding to our botanical gardens and water features.

Officially we are open to the public

through the month of October.

BUT now and through November, when the weather is nice

you should come out and look at the COLORS!!

Any day, 10-4.

The autumn colors are really late this year,

but the trees that are colorful now are SPECTACULAR!

Bring your camera.

 

 

We really want you to visit and see our hidden treasures.


NEWS ARTICLE !!!!

There are many maples suitable for growing in northern US. Here is a primer on them.

Do you know  the difference between Acer japonicum, Acer shirasawanum, Acer sieboldianum, and Acer pseudosieboldianum??

I didn't think so. ;-)  If you learn this info you will know more than many maple experts. Click here:

http://www.davidsansjapanesemaples.com/featured-japanese-maples/japanese-maples-for-the-far-north/

Our business and this website are dedicated to its founder, David Myers

who passed away on September 23, 2017.

Davidsan’s will operate business as usual throughout the coming years with the

same enthusiasm and knowledge passed on to us from David.

Be assured that you will continue to be able to count on me and my staff for our

high quality large inventory and our genuine passion for these trees.

Thank you, Gale Myers

In general, if you plan to visit, please

Email us in advance a few days if you can, and dress for the weather.

If you have to cancel, that's no big deal,

just let us know the day before if possible.

*SHIP and pack COSTS ARE 20% OF TREE COST. There is an added packing fee for 3 gallon size over 3 feet tall ($15) AND a 5 gallon size over 5 feet tall ($20) and there are a LOT of them. We lose money every time we ship one of those tall, smaller-gallon size trees.  Also, when we can ship larger trees, 10 gallon and up, there is a reinforcement/ packing fee ($20) if we have to reinforce the box.   We pack very carefully and we don't want to hurry the process. It takes a little longer to safely pack up the large trees that we ship.

**We ship trees that are 7-gallon size and smaller. There might be a few 10-, 15- or maybe even a 20-gallon size tree that we could pack and ship, depending on the specific tree  (some of these may require a FedEx oversize fee.) Just ask!

ALL ORDERS ARE FIRST COME FIRST SERVED

FAQs:

HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER TO BE SHIPPED TO ME?

Just pick out the trees you want from our availability list. Need some help choosing? Plug in your desires and narrow down your choices using our ‘SAP APP’. See the top menu "CHOOSING A JAPANESE MAPLE"  on our website.  This app is EXCLUSIVE to Davidsan's. It's not perfect but gives both parties an idea of what trees might work. You can email your list to us through the website or at info@davidsansjapanesemaples.com. We will then send you a pre-invoice to look over. It will have the total amount, shipping if applicable, and info on how to make a payment.

You should look over that Pre-Invoice/ Price Quote and add or subtract trees or change sizes. Approve that pre-invoice/price quote and we'll send you a PayPal invoice. It's EASY to pay even if you don't have a PayPal account. You can change or add to your order at any time until 4 days before shipping. We can’t ship your order until it is paid in full.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY TREES?

We ship on Mondays and Tuesdays so your trees won’t ever sit in a truck over a weekend. We are within two day delivery of most of the country.

WHAT ARE YOUR POLICIES AND GUARANTEES FOR SHIPPED TREES?

We will not send trees without at least viable buds or leafing started and will not sell damaged trees or trees we think are substandard or too young to survive. Davidsan’s warrants and guarantees all plants will arrive at your door alive and in good condition. If your box has visible damage, don’t refuse the package, but make sure the delivery person makes a notation of the damaged box.

Be sure to document it yourself by taking a picture of the box before you open it and after opened with tree inside. Unpack and carefully remove your trees from the box - again - carefully! We spend a lot of time carefully packing your tree to assure it travels well. We require photos of any tree damage before a refund or adjustment is allowed. We are proud to say that we have very little damage during shipping. Small twigs or incidental small branches are not considered damage unless we consider it critical to the tree’s long term look or survival.

WHAT IF I WANT TO CHOOSE MY TREES WHEN I VISIT DAVIDSAN'S?

Come as you are and you are free to pick out any trees from our stock of 6000+ trees. If you know which trees you want, just email a list to us, we’ll verify your choices and IF you want us to flag those trees for you, we'll send a PayPal invoice for a deposit (25%, minimum $50) and they will be flagged and reserved for you.

HELPFUL NOTE:

If you are planning to buy a large tree, or many trees we recommend renting an ENCLOSED trailer of proper size. ASK US WHAT SIZE YOU WILL NEED.  PLEASE DO NOT BRING AN OPEN TRAILER OR ONE WITHOUT A TOP ON IT. When we see these coming we wince. It a recipe for disaster except for very short trips like 25 miles. We will load you up, wrap trees if necessary and get them safely into trailer.  You must have a tow hitch and light kit to rent a trailer, but they are super cheap if rented round trip and have no mileage cost.  Most can actually be towed with a van or even a medium sized car easily 'cause they are light weight even with a bunch of trees in them. Remember most larger trees will have to be laid down, but in a 16x12 trailer many can stay upright.

BE AWARE THAT RENTING ONE WAY FROM SPRINGFIELD IS IMPOSSIBLE

We will also advise you on type of vehicle to bring and whether it will work with the type and size of tree(s) you are interested in. Most trees under 7 gals and some 10 gal and above will fit in a SUV, a hatch-back vehicle, a station wagon, or a van if the seats come down and you don't have kids in the back seat. We have put medium sized trees in mini coopers SAFELY.

If you can, please call or email a day or so before you visit so we can be prepared for you and what hours are best for a smooth experience.

WHEN CAN I COME AND VISIT?

We are open regular retail hours daily from April 1 through October 31.  Mon-Sat 10-6, Sun 12-5.  Just come out and see them if you need a day of beauty and awe.

SPECIAL INFORMATION

We might have time to send you a photo of trees you are going to order, but only larger trees 10 gal and above, and no photos are possible at all until the trees have leaves. We can’t send jpegs of smaller trees and suggest that if you do not trust us, please buy in your local area. We will only pick out the best for you.

Need some help? Don't forget to check out our EXCLUSIVE SAP APP HERE:

http://www.davidsansjapanesemaples.com/japanese-maple-tree-selector/

We unfortunately do NOT have much time to suggest trees for you but we will try. We have a small staff and we are all super busy. Try our sap app above in pull-down menu under choosing trees.

If you’re just fishing for prices, we suggest you look elsewhere. You can usually find a cheaper price, but realize that generally means an un-cared for tree, blindly picked out by low paid workers. Your choice.

DAVID'S IMPORTANT SANITY NOTICE:

PLEASE...ALWAYS READ THE WEB SITE FIRST BEFORE CONTACTING ME. PLEASE.

WHY WE DON'T OFFER FREE

SHIPPING LIKE AMAZON AND EBAY

ASIDE FROM THE OBVIOUS THAT WE ARE JUST A SMALL COMPANY WITH LIMITED RESOURCES

NOT ON THE NASDAQ OR DOW....

Packing and shipping is a big loser for us since we don't stuff in an amazon box with a air bag or cardboard and ship. Here's our technique:
Each tree is de-potted, a very little dirt taken off roots and roots spread out a bit if necessary, then root ball is watered well and heavy bagged with wetting gel (to be removed before planting.) Then the tops are wrapped with  lightweight landscape fabric. Each tree is then tied to box securely with high tensile twine.  If your tree is extra heavy we reinforce the box with lumber. Then the box is stapled shut.  Then with high quality 2" strapping tape, we cover all staples and around bottom and all sides.  Each boxed tree(s) take from start to finish 45 minutes if we don't have to make the box from scratch.
We pay our folks a living wage and do not use undocumented labor or under the table cash employees. We think getting your tree to its destination safely is worth the extra cost for us and our customers.
Living trees are not a one-size-fits-all sort of item like socks and hammers and electronics. Each one is different and requires many different sizes of boxes and often we have to make them from scratch.
Finally, shipping cost have gone thru the roof on larger items and we specialize in shipping those. We don't sell band pots or small one year grafts that fit just thrown into standard cheaper delivery services boxes. 50% of the time we  just get our shipping cost back and 50% not even that. And generally don't get back on any labor or materials. Just another cost of doing business. You will not find better packed larger trees on the net that much I can tell ya.

Davidsan's Japanese Maples is located in Springfield, Illinois in what is known as "Deep Midwest Corn Country". We are a dependable, customer oriented company dedicated to the sale of beautiful, spectacular, rare and amazing varieties of "momiji" - the Japanese Maple Tree. We offer over 300 DIFFERENT cultivars of these beautiful trees many that are not commercially available elsewhere. Davidsan's has by far the largest selection of Japanese Maples in the Midwest, and among the largest selections in the United States, at very reasonable prices.

Davidsan's is basically an internet based nursery, but we do offer limited visits by appointment only. We specialize in dwarf Japanese Maples but carry them in all shapes and sizes. We are also one of the handful of internet nurseries that will ship larger trees to your door. The photographs you see here are of our own trees in our own gardens.

The info on this site is all inclusive and should be of great help to anyone who wants to start growing and collecting Japanese maples and those who have already started. Please browse the pages here and take advantage of the things we have learned about how special Japanese Maples truly are and how best to choose and grow them.

We also offer a select and very special assortment of super rare companion trees that go well with momiji, such as dwarf Conifers, dwarf Ginkgo, unusual Beech, super cool truly different looking Oaks, and very special Dawn Redwoods as well as assorted other very rare trees. These trees are picked because they go well with Japanese Maple plantings or because we have found them to be truly special.

We are always glad to hear from folks and we love showing our trees

David “Davidsan” Myers and Gale Myers (Owners)
