I'm looking for a cherry tree to replace the one at my house. What's a good online retailer?
I've heard of jungseed can't remember the others that have been mentioned on here.

I found Starkbros which has good selection but not sure if the company is any good.

Stark is an old company. So old that they are the nursery that purchased the original red delicious (hawkeye) apple and the original golden delicious as well.

Avoid TyTy like the plague or any of the other false names they do business under.

Adam, Jungs are here in Wisconsin and are a class act.
I have ordered many things from them over the years.
Used to be a family outfit and have grown, still a great business.
I have ordered trees from Starks also and have been pleased with them.

Check out St Lawrence Nursery. They seem to specialize in fruit trees suitable for the frigid north. Never ordered from them but found them when looking for a source for Tyson pear.

When it comes to fruit trees, first place I look is Cummins.......trees or root stock. Especially with apples, you can pick your tree and pick the root stock to match.

But looks like the cherries are mostly sold out?

Thanks everyone I appreciate it.
I was leaning towards Bing Cherry but not sure now. Bing's need another Cherry to pollinate I'd need a dwarf variety to put in the backyard with it. I don't think I have the room for 2 cherry trees unless I move the shed.

Ive had good luck with Stark bros, Adams County Nursery and a couple others, but, is there any chance
of locally sourced tree(s) from a nearby nursery? I realize NM may not have a big
selection of fruit trees, but then again, i could be wrong. I have horrible luck with cherries
where im at, so im not great with the subspecies to help. They need excellent drainage in my experience.
Clay ground doesnt help with that.

Awesome thanks. Most nurseries here either have their fruit trees brought in from wholesalers or they charge an arm and a leg. A 4' cherry here you're looking at least $75. I've grown apricots peaches plumbs and apples both in the city and the rez.

Yeah, those are some harsh prices. Dont blame ya a bit for going online.
What about 2 dwarfs? Maybe semi-dwarfs?
Or prune them to fit your yard. Buy standard trees and prune them to the
shape of an arbor-vitae, and i bet they'd produce like crazy.

Isons is great and just down the road from me but I doubt Greg has any cherries as they don't grow down here.

StarkBros are way over the top for prices. I would find smaller in state nurseries to deal with if possible. Having said that, i have dealt with Adams County nursery and was well satisfied.

'Bing' is an old time cherry and a good one, but there have been a lot of innovations since then that you may want to look at. 'Stella' is one and there are others.

Next, pay good attention to what rootstocks are being used. This is one of the most important parts of the deal. If you have droughty sandy soils you may want a different one than one adapted for heavy clays, etc, etc.

I would check out the reviews for Gurney's before doing business there. Last I checked negatives were more than positives.

I’ve had limited success with apple trees from St Lawrence Nursery. But I planted in a zone 3 area, Lake Effect snow belt.
My Dolgo Crabs are doing well from this nursery.

I put in 80 Stark Bros. fruit trees. They did very well. But that was in 1975 in Decatur, Alabama.

I have used a small local nursery where I know the people well. I pay less than $10 per tree. Last I saw some of the nurseries with fancy catalogs are charging north of $50. I think that is nuts.
