We wanted to replace a Norway maple that had died on our front lawn. We visited the Stevens farm in July while in Stouffville. They provided an informative brochure and price list. We were impressed with their stock and the wide selection of beautiful trees. We contacted the owner, Henry by email. He booked an appointment to come and see our site and to discuss the best tree variety for our growing conditions. He sent us a detailed quote by email.We placed our order with the understanding that our tree would be planted this fall, weather permitting. Henry contacted the city to have the site marked in order to avoid hydro/ cable/ gas services. Our new maple was planted seamlessly this week. The hole was dug with a 65" spade that cut through the soil like butter, leaving a deep hole. Stevens' installer, Gord returned a couple of hours later, with our new maple (Autumn Fantasy) and placed the tree neatly into the hole, ensuring that it was straight. The tree was mulched, the site was cleaned up, and we are ready for next summer's growing season.
Stevens' prices were very reasonable for the size of tree we purchased, especially when compared to local nurseries and the City of Toronto boulevard tree upgrading program that we participated in last summer.
