About the Trees

These tress are all native species grown by Woody Warehouse Nursery, Inc. based out of Lizton, Indiana. They use growing techniques that more effectively preserve the critical root systems that newly planted trees need to thrive.

The trees will arrive in 3-gallon grow containers and will be 4 to 6 feet tall. This size is both easy to plant and more likely to effectively establish in its new home. These trees will actually grow taller more quickly than larger balled and burlapped trees because they maintain their entire root stock (critical for tree health) during the transplant process.
