Tree Nursery Guide

tree nursery Trees beautify the landscape, provide shade and shelter from the elements, give us fruit to eat and flowers to enjoy, and release oxygen into the air we breathe.

Many trees grow naturally, but others are grown at nurseries.  Tree nurseries are places where trees are propagated and cultivated in preparation for use in orchards, landscapes, and forests.  Retail tree nurseries sell trees to the general public, while wholesale tree nurseries sell to landscape contractors and other nurseries.  A tree nursery may specialize in fruit trees, shade trees, or evergreen trees or even in certain tree species.  Some nurseries feature seedlings or bare root trees that can be easily shipped in quantity.

nursery trees in pots The trees grown by a particular nursery depend upon its location and climate, because different trees thrive in different environments.  Tree nursery staff is usually knowledgeable about their products, and will most likely be able to help you select appropriate trees for your requirements.  Some tree nurseries offer tree planting services, and they may even offer landscape design services for their larger customers.
