Strictly speaking elderberries are shrubs not trees but they have tremendous value as both a conservation planting and for human use as well. Black Elderberries produce large clusters of dark black/purple berries that are a great food source for songbirds, quail, pheasants, and even deer. The shrubs themselves provide excellent cover for small animals like quail and rabbits. Elderberries make great additions when trying to manage for old field or edge style habitat. Elderberries can reach approx. 6-12ft tall at maturity.
The elderberry plant also used widely for medicinal purposes as they are extremely high in nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants. While we don’t give out medical advice, we know many people swear by this plant to help boost their health. Always consult a physician before making any medical decisions.

I have ordered and planted well over 100 trees online from various wildlife tree sellers, including the big name brands, and the trees I just received from Whitetail Hill Chestnuts are the best looking trees I have ever received... EVER! They are easily 2 feet tall and full of big green leaves. They will make a great addition to my deer and turkey hunting property in Oklahoma and I'm sure I will be ordering more!Oklahoma

I ordered trees from Whitetail Hill they shipped my trees July 12 Priority Mail and were scheduled to arrive Thursday July 15th. When they didn't arrive on the 15th I checked the USPS tracking number that I was provided and USPS just kept telling me each day after that they were scheduled to arrive late. I emailed Whitetail Hill on July 19th and got a prompt response from Caleb H. My question to him was that if my trees did arrive what he thinks they would be alive he said there was a good chance that they wouldn't be and that he would do anything he could to help make the order right.
USPS finally delivered my trees on July 22nd. 7 days late on delivery with the box ripped in half. I open the package expecting to find my dead trees since they'd been in a box for 11 days to my surprise the trees were as green as ever. This just goes to show the quality of trees that these guys grow and send to us. I would highly recommend these guys and have already placed another order for more trees.Mount Vernon, Kentucky
