Sales to the Trade

La Tejana does assist in locating critical landscape materials fast.

 Many landscaping companies buy a large majority – if not all – of their plant materials from brokers otherwise know as re-wholesalers. La Tejana Tree Sales is both of those and more. I can save an industry professional money, time, and effort. I spend a lot of time in the field visiting growing operations all over South Texas and reviewing hot sheets from growers all over the state daily. 

You can depend on me to be able to locate a wide range of critical materials rapidly. If I don’t know where to locate your materials immediately I can often times order them in within 7-10 working days. I strive to bring you quality material that you can trust when it hits the ground and fast. You can count on me to put together your order quickly and efficiently so you don’t have to pay for partial loads and multiple delivery fees. 

the marketplace is very volatile and prices are increasing daily.

If you are just calling to see what I might be able to get 6-months or a year down the road it’s simple don’t call me. The world has tilted on it’s axis in the past 2-years due to COVID-19, inflation, labor shortages and the rapidly rising cost of fuel. There is also a shortage of landscape material nationwide partly created by the snow storm we had in Texas in 2021. Thus the cost of plants and trees has risen between 30 and 50 percent.

The majority of the plant material you see has to be imported from other states which is very expensive. Out of state growers are having to step up production to help out while growers in Texas grow new crops to fill the void. That means out of state growers are having to crank out plant material as fast as possible. Due to that fact we are seeing plant material come in at half the size we are used to receiving.

when to call me for assistance.

If you are the person that signs the checks for your company and need materials ASAP call me with your list of what you want and what you are willing to settle for. If you are simply the procurement person for your company and have to go through 10 other people to get an approval don’t call me. If you are not the person that calls the shots for your company then what you are doing is calling me so that I can do your job for you. You are getting paid by the hour I’m not. Get out from behind your desk and go out in the field like I do and actually see what’s going on in the marketplace.

As soon as I locate or place your order I require payment here's why.

Production is at an all time low and as soon as those trucks are unloaded landscapers are standing by to grab whatever they can get there hands on. Absolutely nothing stays on the ground for long and if I find your materials in stock you should be prepared to make immediate payment. This is a cash and carry business. We have to pull your order immediately because if we don’t someone else will take it. There are no holds. 

we deliver statewide but only install within 2-hours of san antonio

I specialize in locating large quantities of plants and trees, selecting them, delivering them and/or installing them fast. If you only want your order delivered and not installed please keep in mind that when you receive your order you will have to unload the trailer yourself when it arrives. That means that you have to have whatever equipment is necessary to remove that load on site such as a skid steer. We deliver statewide but we only install within 2-hours of San Antonio. We can usually get your order out to you within 72-hours that is unheard of in the industry.
