    Ok guys a background on us. My partner sold trees for 3 years. Did pretty well first year, great second year, didnt sell third and fourth didnt do hot. He has a lot info but I am now looking to you guys for the remainder of help.

    Yes I know its late in the year. However can orders still be put in for wholesalers?

    Best place to purchase stands and skirts?

    Best hours of operation?

    Best locations. Yes I know different cities and better areas differ. However I am asking off highway, retail centers, low mile per hour areas, etc.

    Do you guys take credit cards and if not does it even matter.

    How many trees do you keep on location at times?

    Do you typically offer rent for space or give a portion of sales?

    How much for delivery and set up charge?

    Thank you for your time. I have been in landscape business for years and have decided it is time to start looking at winter income.
