I can’t count the amount of hours I have spent in the Hicks store and grounds, just looking with wonder and joy.  Friendly, knowledgeable and professional are three words that come to mind when I think of this nursery.  It has been a pleasure to get help in selecting my weeping cherry tree, having the spot measured and your expert staff to plant it.  Thank you so much.  Nancy B., Huntington Station
