    Week of 10/2/17: On hold for a local buyer who committed to buy them all.
    Selling approximately 200 tree tubes. All are 5 feet tall. Mesh covers available. Used for only about 5 months. Some are Tubex combitubes, some are Tubex standard, and some are Tree Pro Miracle Tubes. My planting site is poorly drained and we had a 123 year record rainy season from Jan - July. I won't have time to replant in the near future.

    Tubex tree tubes are $3 each, discounted if you buy more than 25. 25 for $65. Take off an additional $10 for local pick up. 25 for $55 for local pick up. That's as low as I can go. These were only outside for 5 months and are now stored indoors. These go for $4.10 each new for 25+ before shipping.

    Tree Pro tubes are $2 each, discounted if you buy more than 25. 25 for $40. Take off an additional $10 for local pick up. 25 for $30 for local pick up. That's as low as I can go. These were only outside for 5 months and are now stored indoors. These go for $3.20 each new for 50+ before shipping.

    I am also selling 1/2" PVC conduit cut to approximately 60" lengths for use as stakes. PVC stakes available for $0.40 each. 25 for $8. Take off an additional $2 for local pick up. 25 for $6 for local pick up.

    PM or email turbosaab16@yahoo.com.

    Site to site shipping through Fastenal stores is approximately $50 - $75 for 50 tubes with stakes.

    Does that include shipping or how much would that be to Wisconsin?

    Weston, they're currently located about 30 miles NW of Milwaukee. I would prefer local pickup if possible. For those who have made requests out of state, I am going to get shipping quotes today if possible.

    I just got back from getting shipping quotes.

    Shipping is about $75 for 50 tubes with stakes site-to-site via Fastenal to just about anywhere in the US. I would ship them from a Fastenal location and you would pick up from the Fastenal location closest to you. Closer to Wisconsin the cost goes down to $50.

    SpeeDee will ship to MO, Eastern MN, northern IL, and NW IN from my location in WI. They're a small delivery company that will ship to your door. Depending on quantity, shipping is $70 - $100 with or without stakes. The issue is the bulkiness of the 5' tubes. Since I'm pulling these from the field it's tough to get them nested 5 at a time like they come from the factory.


    That being said, I'm willing to drive up to 2 hours one way to meet someone for my cost of gas. That would be about $40. PM me or email turbosaab16@yahoo.com if interested. That's a circle roughly from Chicago to Rockford, IL to West of Madison to the Wisconsin Dells to Appleton, WI to Manitowoc, WI.

    For local pick up, I could knock another $10 off the price for 25.

    I have been told that it might be possible to ship store-to-store using Fastenal. I will investigate this option this week and get back to everyone.

    Please see my edits in the first post for reduced pricing for local pick up.

    I just got a quote for shipping site to site from Fastenal. The cost is approximately $50 - $75 for 50 tubes with stakes. That's the cheapest shipping quote I've received thus far.
