Return & Refund Policy

Return and Refund Policy for Simply Trees

At Simply Trees, we strive to ensure your satisfaction with our products. Due to the fragile nature of shipping live plants and trees, our return policy is structured to balance customer satisfaction and product viability.

Return Eligibility and Conditions

Non-Returnable Items: We do not accept returns on any of our plant material due to the fragile nature of shipping live plants and trees.

Returnable Items: We accept returns on garden supplies and hard goods such as fertilizers, planting mixes, eco pots, and watering bags. For items to be eligible for return, they need to be in their original packaging and unused. We will not accept returns on damaged or tampered products. Returns on garden supplies and hard goods must be made within 15 days after delivery. Returns will not be eligible outside of the 15-day period.

Replacement or Store Credit

Quality Issue Resolution Options: Depending on the severity of the quality issue and the specific circumstances, we may offer a replacement plant or tree or provide store credit towards a future purchase. Our aim is to ensure your satisfaction and assist you in your gardening endeavors.

Store Credit Amount: A store credit will be issued for the product(s) in question, reflecting the exact amount the customer paid at the time of purchase. This means if the customer purchased the item(s) at a sale price, they will receive a store credit equal to that discounted price, irrespective of whether the item(s) is currently on sale or not.

Non-Shippable Fruit and Citrus Trees and Plants: If you place an order for a fruit or citrus product and we determine that it cannot be shipped to your location due to USDA, state, or regional shipping restrictions, we will issue a store credit for the full purchase amount. This store credit can be used for any future purchases on our website and does not expire. Please note that this policy applies to orders placed from outside the state of Texas or from any states to which we are unable to ship fruit or citrus products. We appreciate your understanding and are here to assist with any alternative solutions to meet your gardening needs.

Acclimatization Process

Normal Acclimatization: Missing leaves or minor changes to the plants during shipping do not constitute damage, as these are expected parts of the acclimatization process. Plants or trees being slightly shorter than expected do not qualify as damaged or defective and, therefore, cannot be returned or be eligible for store credit, replacement, or refunds.

Return Process

Initiating a Return: To initiate a return, please contact We will guide you through the process, which includes providing clear photos of the product(s) you wish to return and stating the reason for the return. The decision to accept your return will be solely made by Simply Trees.


Store Credit for Damaged Plants: We offer refunds in the form of store credit for plants and trees that have been damaged in transit to the point of no recovery. Store credit does not expire and can be used on any products in our store, including sale items. Store credit is sent as an e-gift card to the email we have on file and is available immediately.

Order Cancellations: If you wish to cancel your order for a refund back to your original payment method, please do so within 12 hours after placing your order. If your order is already fulfilled or in transit to you, a re-stocking fee of 25% of your order value will apply. Additionally, once your order has been shipped, we are unable to cancel it. We take cancellation requests seriously, so please be absolutely sure you want to cancel your order. We cannot reverse order cancellations as we cannot guarantee your items will still be available. Please allow 2-5 business days for the refund to appear in your account.

Shipping and Handling for Returns

Return Shipping Costs: The customer is responsible for the return shipping cost. Please use the original packaging (if possible) for the return. Bring your order to any UPS location to ship your return.

Exceptions and Special Cases

Damaged in Transit: Returns are not accepted if the product being returned gets damaged in transit back to our facility. If the eligible product was already damaged or defective upon delivery to the customer, we will issue store credit or a replacement for the product in question. Returns will not be necessary in these situations.

Exchanges: We do not offer exchanges unless the wrong product was shipped to the customer. Please contact us for help processing an exchange.

Customer Communication

Return Acceptance Notification: We will notify the customer by email once the return has been accepted.
