Hardwood trees for sale

Rootmaker Oaks in the fall of 2011

Rootmaker Oaks in the fall of 2011

We grow native nut trees and other native hardwoods in Rootmaker bags.  Most are grown from seed gathered in Washtenaw and Jackson counties.

We use Rootmaker bags that come in a variety of sizes.  Larger bags allow trees to grow to a larger size before planting.

Trees in smaller bags are ready to transplant at an earlier age and are therefore less expensive and easier to transplant.

We are currently using 14”  and 18” bags.

Trees in 14” bags can grow to 2 inch diameter
Trees in 18” bags can grow to 3 inch diameter


The native trees that we have to sell are:

Northern Red Oak Quercus rubrum
Chinkapin Oak Q. muehlenbergii
Shingle Oak Q. imbracaria

Kentucky Coffee Tree Gymnocladus dioicus
