Native Forest Nursery offers over 50 species of Native Hardwoods and Shrubs. Hardwood seedlings from our nursery are commonly used for conservation, reclamation, mitigation, reforestation, restoration, wetland, and horticultural plantings. Our seedlings are hand lifted and hand packaged to ensure the highest quality seedlings are delivered to our customers. We have the ability to grade our seedlings for size and form to meet your project specifications and we have the ability to tag or mark your seedlings for increased visibility at outplanting. Our seedlings are kept in refrigerated storage from the day of lifting until the day your order is shipped. We also have the ability to arrange refrigerated delivery and drop services.
