CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — PlantingTreeTM, a family-owned nationwide online nursery based in North Carolina, expanded its online customers in 2020 with a 150% increase in sales. PlantingTreeTM specializes in a unique and vast selection of trees, shrubs, plants, and supplies.
Stay-at-home orders and the shift to remote work in 2020 led to more time at home for most Americans. COVID sparked a reinvestment in old passions and the discovery of new ones creating a home renovation and gardening boom across the country. According to the U.S. Census Monthly Retail Trade Report June 2020, e-commerce had an additional 20.4% increase from 2019 to 2020, and gardening retail revenue doubled.
PlantingTreeTM owners Tony D’Alessandro and Peter Casatelli grew up working at their family-owned nursery in upstate New York and became passionate about all things planting. They moved to the Lake Norman area of North Carolina to start their own business, DalaCasa Landscape Management, which plants thousands of trees and shrubs at high-end residential properties. The owners identified a need for more customer education and access to a greater variety of plants and trees. This need led them to create PlantingTree.com in 2014, an online nursery to sell plants and trees and provide helpful planting information.
PlantingTree.com gives people the resources to get outside and create something beautiful during otherwise uncertain times. 2020 pushed the company to expand how they serve their customers, focusing PlantingTreeTM on making planting fun. Their tagline, “Let’s Get Growing,” has been put into action with increased sales. Tony and Peter want to make it easy for customers to buy plants and trees online and succeed with quick and easy access to information about each plant, its care, use in landscape, growing zones, and more.
“We’ve pioneered the way plants and trees ship successfully through the mail. Pots are watered and carefully wrapped, and our boxes are extra sturdy. You’d be amazed at the tests we’ve put our boxes through to ensure every customer’s order arrives ready to grow,” shared Carlos Guzman, purchasing manager at PlantingTreeTM. “We know what it takes to grow a healthy, thriving plant. Our online customers get a greater variety and superior product from PlantingTree.com than they can anywhere else.”
