Texas Madrone

One of our favorite tree is the Texas and Arizona Madrone. They are harder to find in the wild but worth the effort! And starting in late Spring, they can put on a show!

Welcome
Oaks of the Wild West

Summer is here (well, not officially)!

We have lots of young trees in the greenhouses!

For some of our trees that we grow we have had bumper crops! One of those crops is the Cork Oak (quercus suber). By contrast the Arizona White Oak did poorly but the small Arizona White Oak acorns collected two years are growing nicely and are about 2 feet tall.

Looking for a privacy screening?

We grow a variety of Pine Trees from around Arizona and New Mexico and Texas. One of the most popular pine trees is the Italian Stone Pine. It is a fast growing beautiful pine that can be 12 feet wide by 12 feet tall at maturity. Arizona Cypress and Blue Ice Arizona Cypress are popular trees that grow wide and tall that provides a flash of unusual color and is drought tolerant once established.

We carry a wide variety of native plants from a variety of southern states, primarily Texas, Arizona and California. We have a smaller selection of trees from New Mexico.

Many of the Oak Trees and Pine Trees grow throughout the US.  We've sold lots of trees to the North Carolina as well as Utah - even recently to Las Vegas, NV so call us if you have questions about the tree you want and it's viability for your area.

Native Tree Nursery

Our nursery specializes in collecting a wide variety of Oak species.  With our connections, we collect acorns from around the world, including a wide variety of California Native Oaks.

We have two nursery locations, Central Texas and SE Arizona.  Our original location is outside of Sierra Vista, Arizona.

We can help you make the right selection of native trees for your area, from California to Virginia and in-between.

We carry a limited amount of other Oak tree species as well : Netleaf Oak (quercus rugosa) - Mexican Blue Oak (quercus oblongifolia).

The Mexican Blue Oak is a unique tree native to Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The leaves are strong a dark blue color and have an unusual shape. The tree is very drought tolerant. When new leaves appear on the plant they are a wonderful light pink color. Typically, throughout the winter the tree is evergreen, however during the last severe cold winter with temperatures down to 3 degrees, the leaves were affected, but the plants survived.
