The State Tree Nursery provides high-quality native, endangered, and windbreak trees and plants for both the public and DLNR-state sponsored out-plantings and reforestation projects.

We propagate many different species of native plants, some endangered species, and numerous trees for windbreak purposes, most windbreak trees are non-native and are sold in dibble tubes or small pots when the trees are approximately 1.5′ – 2.5′ tall. Natives and endangered plants are sold in various container sizes (Contact us for availability and ordering info).
