Plant Patent Rights

U.S. plant patent laws prohibit the propagation of patented plant materials for personal use or for sale. The life of the patent is 17 years. Permission must be obtained in writing from Columbia Basin Nursery, LLC, prior to topworking or propagating our patented varieties.

Replacement Policy

Columbia Basin Nursery, LLC, warrants the trees to be alive, true to name, and in good condition. If trees arrive damaged, or they do not appear to start properly, please call us at once. We may be able to help you with the problem! It takes the team effort of both the grower and the nursery to successfully transfer the dormant trees through the transplanting process. If the trees fail to grow with proper care on your part and replacements are needed, Columbia Basin Nursery, LLC, will either replace trees or refund original purchase price of trees at the option of the buyer. All claims of tree loss must be reported prior to August 1 following the date of delivery. Under no circumstances will Columbia Basin Nursery, LLC, be liable for any consequential or special damages or for any amount greater than the original purchase price of the trees that are in violation of the above warranty.

Columbia Basin Nursery, LLC, will not be responsible for the loss of trees when the grower stores nursery trees with apples or in poorly ventilated apple storage rooms, plants new trees into fumigated ground before soil is free from fumigant which causes major tree damage or poor tree performance, or abuses the trees by allowing tree desiccation or weed competition to occur through poor management practices.

Scionwood Selection

We carefully select our scionwood from mature bearing trees. However, it is possible that some variations may occur within the same variety. This non-typical fruit is especially shown in the color of striped apple fruit varieties and to a lesser extent, tree growth rates. Environmental and cultural practices, such as unusually warm weather at picking time, or tip pruning, excessive fertilization, irrigation and herbicides can affect the color formation just before harvest. Because of these factors, Columbia Basin Nursery, LLC, cannot accept responsibility for the finished fruit color and tree size of any of our nursery stock. We suggest that you use moderation in your orchard practices and consult your local county agent and experiment station for fine-tuning your procedures.

This limited warranty is void as to any tree that buyer de-limbs. No warranty on trees planted between May 1 and February 1.
