Our Trees

  • Bare Root Stock

    Bare Root Stock

    Bareroot seedlings are the most economical planting stock for large planting projects. They are the best performers in open field plantings where competition is high. Bareroot seedlings are generally only available first thing in the spring after frost has left the ground, when handling and planting stresses are minimal.

  • Gift Trees / Greenhouse Plug Seedlings

    Gift Trees / Greenhouse Plug Seedlings

    Greenhouse plug seedlings can be packaged to make a fun, thoughtful and environmentally friendly gift for a variety of occasions including weddings, funerals and corporate give aways. We have a variety of packaging options that we can provide you with to pass these seedlings out to you special guests.

    Plug seedlings are also a good planting option for those sites with low competition and shallow soils or to under plant in and existing woodlot.

  • Potted stock

    Potted stock

    Potted stocks are plants that have been grown in a one gallon to 12 gallon pot for a minimum of 3 months in our nursery. The plants used are from our own nursery bareroot production. Potted stock can be planted throughout the growing season from spring to fall. Our outlet store is open for general retail sales of potted stock for four weeks in early spring and four weeks in September at all other times we sell by appointment only for sales of $350.00 or more.

  • Whips and Liners

    Whips and Liners

    Whips and liners are larger bareroot hardwood and conifer plants for those clients requiring a larger tree or shrub. These plants are typically used by landscapers or landowners wanting a more established planting site, they will also be used by nurseries to establish their own potted products or lined out to grow on to a caliper tree.
