For ordering and payments, email Gale at PrairieGM@gmail.com

Or call Gale at 217-341-5904.

“Can I order from your website?”

You cannot order from our website as we don't have a shopping cart. Trees are too variable; not like boots and pants and boots and pants.

Limited to trees in stock only. Previous purchases not included.

 

“How do I pay if I need trees shipped to me?”

Full payment is due upon ordering. We accept check, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover. If it turns out that the tree you order is not available or up to our standards, you can order a different tree or we will refund your money. Call Gale at 217-341-5904 with your payment information.

We will ship via FedEx every Wednesday or Thursday for shipping to Illinois or bordering states, and every Monday or Tuesday for those farther away.  Shipping will begin now and continue thru October, weather permitting.  When you order, please let us know if you need a special ship date or if there is a time when you cannot receive a shipment! You will receive advance notice regarding your ship date.

 

“What’s your guarantee?”

Our Guarantee for shipped trees

We guarantee that our trees will arrive safely and in good condition with exceptions of minor twig damage. No other guarantee is stated or implied. Any major shipping damage we will refund all or some of your payment depending on the extent of damage and a discussion with you.  Jpegs are required of tree damage while tree is in box and such jpegs must show damage and be in our possession within three days of delivery. Our goal is to send you great trees that arrive safely and to your total satisfaction.  Unfortunately we cannot control winter weather or how and where you plant your tree.

 

“What if I pick up my trees?”

Pick up your trees and we guarantee that they are healthy trees. If something shows up (disease or death of the tree) within two weeks, pictures must be sent to us at that time. We will determine the cause of the problem and reimburse you to your satisfaction.

We have the same guarantee for every tree purchased.

 

“Can you send me a picture?”

Sorry no Jpegs! We will be too busy.  You will be sent our best trees! If a tree you have ordered is not up to OUR standards we will NOT ship it. We will let you know and recommend another. If you are road-trip-close, it’s better – and more fun- to come and pick out your own tree – especially if you have very specific requirements other than just a damn good, professionally chosen tree.

*****SUPER HOT GRANITE NEWS !!! ******

AMAZING ITEMS PERFECT FOR YOUR JAPANESE GARDEN, HOME OR COMMERCIAL SETTING

Davidsan’s has just acquired a large assortment (500 plus) of hand carved solid granite Asian statuary (some weighing two tons or more!) This is the largest assortment of hand carved granite statuary including pagodas, lanterns, fountains, tables, benches and statuary etc. in the USA. Most of these items are one of a kind and with currency exchange, higher labor and shipping cost they are no longer imported into the USA. We have photos of each piece on the website.

Use the link below to see our new GRANITE web site http://www.davidsansgranite.com/

We can load your car, truck or trailer. Many items come in several pieces making each piece more manageable to unload and re-assemble. Remember these are not concrete or plastic sold many places. These are solid hand carved granite. We can deliver and set up these heavy items to your prepared base. Please see our “Shipping and Delivery Options” or contact me by email or phone for more info.

Here are a few photos of some of our Asian including a very large ceremonial tea table with super detailed dragon and phoenix carvings at either end carved out of a 200 year old fallen tree in China. We have three other smaller tea tables also. Hundreds more photos available for viewing on the link above. You will also see very unique hand carved wood pieces, large porcelain vases, glass gifts and many other interesting items.

*****David’s Editorial Section *****

YOU WILL NOT FIND HEALTHIER BIGGER FULLER MORE WELL BRANCHED TREES  IN ANY POT SIZE THAN AT DAVIDSAN'S

YOU MAY BE ABLE TO FIND A CHEAPER SMALLER JM. BUT THAT USUALLY MEANS A PENNY WISE AND A POUND FOOLISH .. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. AND BUYING A CHEAPER TREE THAT'S BEEFED UP ON FERTILIZER WITH A SMALL ROOT BALL. JUST A FEW MONTHS OR ONE GROWING SEASON LONG (BASICALLY A BAND POT SIZE PUT IN AN OVER FERTILIZED ONE GAL POT). WILL LIKELY RESULT IN A NON TREE SHORTLY .

WHAT I MEAN BY THIS

#1 THESE QUASI ONE GALLONS WITH SMALL ROOT SYSTEMS ARE PRONE TO BEING TO WET OR TOO DRY AND THEREFORE MUCH MORE LIKELY TO DIE

#2 THESE SMALLER TREES ARE THE ULTIMATE CRITTER FOOD IF PLANTED OUT OR KEPT POTTED WITHIN CRITTER REACH

#3 YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT YEARS TO ENJOY THEM AS JMS GROW SLOWLY IN MOST PLACES WITHIN THE USA  WHICH IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE THAT ARE OVER 50 OR PLAN TO MOVE WITHIN 5 YEARS.

I SELL ONE GALLONS BUT MINE ARE TWO FULL SEASONS OLD . BUT I NEVER RECOMMEND THEM TO BEGINNERS. I ALWAYS SAY "SAVE YOUR MONEY AND BUY A BIGGER TREE" . I DO NOT SELL BAND POTS OR SMALL ONE GALS WHICH ARE BASICALLY BAND POTS. ( BAND POTS ARTE SMALL +-2" WIDE SQUARE POTS WHICH ARE +- 3" LONG. BAND POTS ARE USUALLY SOLD TO BIG SELLERS WHO BUY HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS AND EXPECT A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF DEATH RATE BUT ARE ALSO SET UP TO BETTER TAKE CARE OF THEM THAN MOST INDIVIDUAL BUYERS.

MY DREAM IS THAT THIS ONGOING QUEST FOR THE CHEAPEST TREE WILL END . I REALLY DON'T LIKE SELLING jMS LIKE SOCKS AND UNDERWEAR . I DIDN'T GET INTO THIS BUSINESS TO GET RICH BUT I DIDN'T GET INTO IT TO BE NICKELED AND DIMED EITHER. JMS AND OTHER RARE TREES SHOULD BE SEEN AS AN INVESTMENT IN SANITY AND BEAUTY AND PLEASURE. YOU ARE BUYING TIME WHEN YOU BUY AN OLDER TREE. TIME MANY OF US JUST DON'T HAVE OR CAN'T BE GUARANTEED TO HAVE.

IF YOU BUY ELSEWHERE DON'T BE SURPRISED THAT YOU WILL GET INFERIOR PRODUCTS AND SPEND MUCH MORE ON SHIPPING  AND WAITING 10 DAYS SOMETIMES TO GET IT FROM THE WEST COAST.  BEING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY ONLY 2-3 DAYS SHIPPING WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS... AT DAVIDSANS YOU GET HAND PICKED TREES THAT ARE BOFFO AND ARE PACKED LIKE FINE CHINA. WITH OUR PROFESSIONAL WHITE GLOVE PACKING SYSTEMS DONE BY ADULT EMPLOYEES.

I KNOW THIS BECAUSE I'VE BEEN THERE DONE THAT AS A COLLECTOR .. IF YOU ARE ON A TIGHT BUDGET JUST WAIT AND SAVE MONEY ( NOT MUCH IN MOST CASES) AND BUY FROM DAVIDSANS WHERE YOU GET A FAIR PRICE FOR A TREE THAT WILL GROW IN MOST NORMAL WEATHER CONDITIONS .. CHEAP JMS ARE USUALLY JUST THAT ... CHEAP JUNK!!

ABOUT JPEGS OF OUR TREES

UNFORTUNATELY WE CANNOT DO JPEGS OF ANY TREES LESS THAN TEN GALLONS OR GIVE EXACT SIZES  ( WE CAN GIVE APPROXIMATE SIZE)...WE JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME AND IN WINTER EVERYTHING IS STUFFED AWAY IN HEATED GREENHOUSES NOT ACCESSIBLE. BE ASSURED YOU WILL BE SENT BOFFO TREES LARGE FOR THERE POT SIZE.

IF YOU DON'T TRUST ME TO PERSONALLY MAKE SURE YOU GET THE BEST POSSIBLE  PRODUCT AVAILABLE AND SUPERIOR TO ANYWHERE ELSE , THEN YOU BEST TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE CAUSE SADLY I DON'T HAVE THE TIME OR ENERGY TO DO JPEGS OR SPECIFIC MEASUREMENTS ON SMALLER TREES SORRY. ONLY APPROXIMATE SIZE. LARGER TREES 10 GAL AND UP ARE MORE OF AN INVESTMENT FOR YOU AND THOSE TREES WE CAN DO "A SINGLE" JPEG AND EXACT SIZES WEATHER PERMITTING AND IN SPRING, SUMMER OR FALL NOT WINTER.  I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND IT'S ME NOT YOU ;>)

AND OF COURSE IF YOU LIVE WITHIN A FEW HOURS OF US YOU ARE ALWAYS BETTER OFF STOPPING DOWN AND PICKING OUT YOUR OWN TREE. PHOTOS DO NOT DO JUSTICE TO THE TREE AND YOU MAY LIKE SOMETHING ELSE BETTER . AND WE MOST OFTEN HAVE DEALS ON FOR TREES YOU PICK UP HERE.

VISITING US IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR BONSAI FOLKS .. WE HAVE LEARNED THE HARD WAY IT IS NEVER A GOOD IDEA FOR YOU AS A BIONSAI BEGINNER OR EXPERT TO BUY OVER THE INTERNET. WE NEITHER ENCOURAGE THIS OR PROMOTE IT . WE ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT DO PHOTOS FOR BONSAI FOLKS . AND WE ARE NOT ONLY DOING OURSELVES A FAVOR BUT YOU TOO ... BONSAI FOLKS SHOULD ALWAYS BUY LOCALLY OR VISIT US DIRECTLY. IF WITHIN DRIVING DISTANCE WE WANT SATISFIED CUSTOMERS .. AND BUYING OVER THE INTERNET WITH PHOTOS VIRTUALLY INSURES THAT THAT WON'T BE THE CASE FOR BONSAI FOLKS.

The Best Japanese Maples COME ONLY FROM DAVIDSAN'S

SO BUY, COLLECT, AND GROW ONLY THE BEST !!

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
