We produce millions of tree and shrub seedlings each year for reforestation and other plantings across Maryland and Delaware. We’ve been in the tree business for over 100 years, with our first nursery established at College Park in the early 1900’s. We are now located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore near the town of Preston and look forward to furnishing planting stock for many years to come.
Growing seedlings requires attention to nature’s schedule. Seed is harvested during late summer and the fall. Planting occurs during the fall and spring. We harvest and ship seedlings from late February to early May. All spring and summer we are watering, fertilizing and weeding the seedlings. It’s a never ending cycle of renewal that results in healthy, vigorous seedlings being planted across the state.
Whether you want to reforest timberland or create a windbreak, improve wildlife habitat or just enjoy the feeling of planting trees, we hope we can serve you.
Ninety percent of Maryland’s forest land is owned by
private woodland owners. Forest land is one of our greatest natural
resources and if taken care of, can offer long term benefits for
everyone. With these thoughts in mind we offer again this year many
seedlings to assist landowners in their afforestation or reforestation
projects. We hope that within these pages you will find the right
options for your land and your objectives for that land.
