Native Forest Nursery offers over 50 species of Containerized Trees and Shrubs for use in the horticulture, conservation, and mitigation industries. We grow species that offer edible ornamental uses, vibrant fall foliage, spring and summer flowers, and landscape shading. We also grow several long time favorites such as Flowering Dogwood and Southern Magnolia. Starting in 2016, we are offering The Rising SunTM Redbud with brilliant lavender flowers in the spring giving way to new golden leaves that vary from yellow to orange to lime green throughout the growing season.

Our Containerized Trees and Shrubs are primarily grown in #3 air pruning containers that we believe offer several distinct advantages to our plants and to the customers who purchase them. Our Containerized Trees and Shrubs are also pruned and staked as needed to promote the good form required by our customers.

Containerized Tree and Shrub Products

All species are available in one of two grades:

Horticulture Grade – Pruned and staked as needed to promote straight form and proper branching.

Conservation Grade – Quality plants suitable for projects that don’t require a particular tree form.

We offer our trees and shrubs in the following container sizes:

  • #1 containers
  • #3 air pruning containers
  • #7 containers
  • #15 containers
  • D60 cells
  • 5” Anderson Bands
  • 9” Anderson Bands

​Heights vary by container size, species and time of year. Final heights and grades are determined for each species during our fall inventory in late October.
