We are a family owned and operated establishment and take pride in growing quality nursery stock since 1980.

With multiple root pruning, minimal basket sizing and close attention to the root flare area, we feel you are obtaining the best tree stock in the area. All these steps lessen the shock of transplanting and help the tree to quickly establish in your yard.

We would like to invite you to come by and let us show you the difference in our trees and shrubs.

Golden Glory Dogwood

In late winter Golden Glory bears its clusters of small yellow flowers in a light shimmer across the tree. It's always pretty, but not dramatic. It's English name is Cornelian Cherry, because of the glossy red fruits borne in early autumn, which are rather acidic, but can be used for making jam if you're inclined to waste sugar. 'Golden Glory' is a commonly grown clone, it is free-flowering, with a more upright branching habit.

Kentucky Coffeetree

Spring brings the initial treat with clusters of petite, white flowers cascading from the branches. Their contrast against the double-compound, vibrant green leaves is lovely. Each leaf can reach up to 3 feet in length (with 100+ tiny leaflets), presenting an impressive sight for your yard.
