Do no buy from them unless you wish to throw your money away.
"Purchased two cherry trees in December, and them sent them to me in April. We planted them the very next day after arrival. After three months both are dead. The policy is if you did not purchase additional insurance at the time you made the initial purchase and your plants die, then they are generous enough to replace them for you at half price, plus shipping. Are they kidding? I am going to try to report them to a government agency. "
Terrible Company, Don't Even Try
"What an utter disappointment this shop is. We ordered a "bare root" American Sycamore with a fair bit of excitement. What arrived was such a sad specimen that we laughed and affectionately called it our "dead stick." It was about 5 feet tall and maybe 1/8" in diameter, bone dry with NO apparent living buds for limbs, and single spindle of "root" maybe four inches long protruding from the bottom. But, I trusted them and followed their directions to a tee, planted, fed, and watered faithfully, and sat back self-consciously hoping it would grow as we cared for it. A few neighbors stopped by and shared chuckles with us at the care I was giving this pitiful thing. After a couple week, a neighbor who is a well-respected arborist and Landscape Architect who does a great deal of work for the city stopped by and gave it a good once over. He quickly assessed that it was not "dormant," but quite dead and likely had been for a very long time. They had, indeed, mailed us a dead stick.That's bad enough, but to add insult to injury, their "warranty" requires us to pay for another tree (at half the original price in fairness) AND shipping. That's not a warranty, that's a racket! Needless to say we won't be doing that, and will instead be making every effort to let everyone know to be very wary of this company. They're not a quality business. "
Dead Trees and Horrible Customer Service
"I bought 22 trees, 9 of which never leafed out and looked dead when they arrived. I called their customer service representative, Julia who said they would replace the trees at 1/2 price. Why would I pay for dead trees two times? She continued to be rude and unprofessional throughout the call and left me with an unreasonable solution. Don't buy from Nature Hills, it is a waste of money and a major headache. "
"Ordered two orange trees and they sent me nothing!!! Save your money and find a real nursery to order from!!!"
Bare shrubs upon arrival!
"Like the other reviews this year, I ordered two butterfly shrubs and they both arrived bare. It took their nursery manager days to get back to me to inform me of whether the plants are still useful and by that point I'd had it. They were planted, but showing no signs of improving. Atter 3 wks, they are STILL refusing to refund my money! "
I had a very bad experience at first but after contacting them on Facebook messenger got a full refund
"My tree was dead on arrival and there was no chance of a refund according to their policy.I finally got a refund"
Dead bare roots.
"My order came partially after 5 weeks. The bare roots were pretty much dead. When call, they said it will came up in 6 weeks.Nothing came up after 7 weeks . Wasted my money. When I asked them for replacement, initially they said, I have to pay half price plus shipment. When I said ok, they said, they do not have them on stock. This place is a rip off. Their tree are healthy only on their website photos......Horrible "
Awful plants, no support or service
"Ordered one of their bare root blue Wisteria trees. Arrived as a four foot stick with a tiny tuft of a root in October. Planted immediately in spite of doubts , but it never showed any sign of life this Spring. Nursery wants to charge me for another tree plus shipping to replace it. A cherry tree from the same order arrived a few weeks ago. It was a stick with a bit more root and planted immediately. It actually still has a few green leaves at the bottom, but the upper part of the stick is dead. Lesson is to not buy anything from them that is "bare root" because you are essentially buying a stick cutting from a tree that has been placed in water for a few weeks, hoping it will grow."
Horrible service and even worse trees!
"I ordered 5 trees for this place. Big mistake! The two that actually looked like more than a tree, they chopped the tops off for shipping! Two of the trees weren't even the width of a pencil! They are all suppose to be 5-6ft healthy trees! I called customer service to have one of the twigs replaced and the agent was VERY rude. They probably get these calls a lot! I paid $70 per tree. I want to put this review out there so no one orders from this company!! "
POOR customer service!!!
"Purchased 5 trees 2016, purchased guarantee for one year. 2017 two trees died, called for replacement, trees almost doubled in price.....could only replace one, had to speak to customer service THREE times, one week later STILL no trees, order was still not placed. Customer service VERY RUDE, will never order from them again!!!!!!!"
WORST COMPANY EVER. BAR NONE. DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM THIS SCAM COMPANY!
"THE WORST COMPANY I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH, PERIOD.DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM THIS SCAM WEBSITE.I have NEVER written an online review. EVER. For anything.Nature Hills Nursery is THE WORST. I paid $75 for a tree. They sent me a TWIG WITH NO LEAVES. Literally a Charlie Brown tree. I thought it was a JOKE. So I told them I wanted a refund. I would send their twig back and just refund me the money and I will go to Lowes and spend $75 on a REAL TREE, with LEAVES and everything. They simply REFUSE! I am reporting this scam of a company to the Better Business Bureau. Absolutely ridiculous they WILL NOT REFUND the unsatisfied customer's purchase. If it is a "dormant tree" as they claim, then they should have NO TROUBLE TAKING A RETURN and selling it to some other sap who is dumb enough to do business with HORRIBLE COMPANY. BUT THEY WILL NOT ISSUE YOU A REFUND! HORRIBLE COMPANY!Nature Hills Nursery: Shipment # 100215258 for Order # 100159870 Inboxx May 14 (1 day ago)to Melody, Melody, please see the attached.

Terrible trees and they got order wrong!
"Avoid buying from this place, the trees are sticks, nothing arrives on time, u can rarely get anyone to answr the phone and Home depot do far nicer trees, cheaper!!! AVOID!!!"
Slow Shipping with super small plants and trees. Dont buy from them
"Not only are there trees NOT 4-5 FT (they count the root ball) I order a tree and it never shipped me. I had to call after I waited 6 months, Just to find out the item was on back order?? No emails or confirmation for longer than 6 months??? Really??? Oh but it only gets worse from here… Shortly after giving my CC # over the phone to Nature Hills, my Credit card was spoofed/copied and had to be deactivated 1 week later. Seems a bit odd that the same town the company takes orders from, just happened to be the exact location of an attempted $1 gas transaction that failed. Needless to say, I will not be doing future business with them, ever!I found the exact same trees down the street from my house for $25 and it was twice the size, where as they charge $165 for the exact items."
"Purchased a plant expecting the plant to look like the one on their website in the pot. When it arrived I was shocked that it had likely never been pruned with several feet of leggy growth. It was also nothing like the pic on their website. being much smaller and very thin. After I contacted them their email stated that the plants on their website are mature plants and that I could send them a pic for review which I did also emphasizing that I compared what I received to the pic of the plant in the pot on their website. Their response was wait until the plant matures. The plant is fast growing but it could take 2-4 years, probably 3 -4 for the plant to look like the one on their website. I will never order from this company again. They are very expensive even after the phony discount."
Save Yourself Some Grief
"The most frustrating experience. 1) The website: when you add your billing address, it changes your shipping address unbeknownst to the buyer. 2) When I received an email showing that my two trees were being shipped to the wrong address, they would not contact FEDEX. ...so I contacted FEDEX and found that the ability to change the shipping address lies solely with the shipper. I contacted Nature Hills customer support again (and again and again) pleading with them to please contact FEDEX: they refused, talked over me, mocked me and would not let me speak to a supervisor. Please save yourself some grief and look elsewhere: these are not the people you want to support with your money. It would be fabulous if Nature Hills cared to resolve this problem by contacting me. From my experience with their customer support, this is not likely, but I certainly would like to be wrong about this."
