Crain Tree Farm and Nursery


We are plant people and take pleasure in sharing our knowledge with you to ensure

you will get the most enjoyment from your plants and landscapes.


Office hours: Mon. - Sat., 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.


Planting season is still upon us. Jose is bringing in new stock every day.




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.

Rich says...

Standing by your tree watering with a hose for 5 long minutes is not enough water for your tree. It needs 5 gallons (1 inch) of water each watering. Feel under the mulch. If it feels dry, give it more water.

Sour Gum/Black Gum/Black Tupelo

Nyssa sylvatica

Need a 30-foot shade tree that's beautiful all year long? Nyssa sylvatica 'Wildfire' will definitely impress you.

Winter Interest
Winterking Hawthorn

Edible! I have tried the haws, they're not bad. I can see why the birds love them. Peeling bark is interesting. Spring flowers are also very beautiful! ~ Karen



Hardy Rubber Tree
