We Sell Michigan Native Trees
We believe that trees that are native to Michigan will be the easiest to grow in Michigan. In addition, they will be the trees most likely to fit well into the Michigan ecosystem.
Because of this, we focus our efforts on providing the trees that were dominant in this area before our ancestors settled here, primarily Oak and Hickory. As time goes by, we are adding trees that are native but were less common in the environment,
We grow these trees from seeds that have been collected in Michigan, usually within 30 miles of our farm in Dexter.
In addition to several different varieties of Oak and Hickory trees, we have other native trees some of which are unusual and hard to find in nurseries. We now have an online catalog with full details.
Since these trees did not evolve in a world where transplanting was a part of their existence, we grow them using a system which has been developed to make them easier to replant called the RootMaker System. You can learn more about how we grow trees with the RootMaker System to make them easier to replant.
