Native Trees for Sale Online

North American Native trees are some of the most underutilized plants in North America. Native trees can provide shade, privacy, screening, and wildlife habitat. Native trees are valuable additions to landscapes because of their changing interest throughout the year and their ability to adapt to changing conditions.

They are the dominant trees in most woodland plant communities throughout the country. Native Trees are valued for their year-round beauty and the shelter for wildlife and birds.

Native trees are often grouped into two categories, broadleaf trees, and evergreens. Broadleaf trees have broad, flat leaves. They also may have showy flowers, such as redbud, or colorful fruits and berries, such as American holly. Evergreens have needle-like foliage, such as the eastern white pine. Though most conifers are evergreen, there are a few exceptions. Bald cypress loses its needles each fall but resembles a conifer the rest of the seasons. Native trees when properly sited, perform well with minimal care.
