Since most garden centers buy—rather than raise—most of what they sell, there is room for tremendous variation in buying ability and buying standards. The opinions we collected from consumers on garden centers reflect this big variation in quality.

Healthy though they appear most of the time, on occasion your trees might become shady characters, done in—and perhaps ultimately brought down—by disease or damage or both. We advise you on how to choose a tree care professional.
