Sources of Uncommon/Native Trees
I suppose we shouldn't plug competitors on this site, but about the only thing we like better than
selling trees is buying them! Here are some of our favorite sellers of native and uncommon trees:
- ForestFarm: www.forestfarm.com Forestfarm offers the most complete selection of
trees and woody shrubs in the US (okay, maybe in the world). Unfortunately, their potted
plants are often leafed out by time they get shipped to the upper midwest, so if you live in
this area you may need to provide frost protection until the danger of frost is passed.
- Reeseville Ridge Nursery: www.wegrowit.com/Reeseville/ReesevilleRidgeCatalog.htm
You gotta love the low prices here and they offer many, many hard to find native trees and
- St. Lawrence Nurseries: 325 State Highway 345, Potsdam, NY 13676 St. Lawrence
Nurseries is a very dependable source of hardy native northern trees as well as fruit trees
and shrubs, including blueberries.
