Through research, experience, and evaluations we are always looking for the best tree species to plant in the nursery. Our long standing relationships in the industry help us stay on top of the latest plant developments. Some of the nurseries we work with on our starting liner stock are J. Frank Schmidt Nursery, Bailey Nurseries, Robinson Nursery, Kuenzi Turf & Nursery, Sester Farms, John Holmlund Nursery, and Countryside Nursery.
On planting day, we monitor closely the root structure and planting depth of the trees as they are planted. Proper root structure, root flare, and planting depth are essential to the ability of a tree to thrive later in the landscape. We pay close attention to these details early on so that our customers can rest assured the trees we deliver will stand the test of time. Jamie always says, “The most important day in a tree’s life is the day we plant it in our nursery.” At Spring Grove Nursery we take tree planting seriously, and all other nursery operations are put on hold while planting. It is truly a team effort that gets 100% focus of all our crews.

We hope you enjoy this glimpse into a day planting trees at the nursery!
