Need a great online nursery suggestion Please

nostalgicfarm(5)May 10, 2012

I have ordered a bunch of conifers from Carino Nurseries the last two years. This year, I was wanting to order a variety bunch of good sized (3-5') deciduous trees from them, but they retired this year. Their replacement company sells a lot of 6-12'' trees or bunches of 50 of the same tree.

Where would be a great online place with a good variety of trees that you can order in quantities of 1-10 with a good 3-5' height for under $10?

Thanks!

May or may not fit your specs, but for a wide variety of species, at affordable costs, check out OIKOS Tree Crops.
Good selection of oaks, nut trees, and native fruiting trees, as well as other oddball stuff.

I've ordered various things from them for years. Mostly small, paper-pot-grown stuff, but have, in the past, bought some larger field-grown specimens. Some may be spindly when they arrive, but they bulk up and grow just fine - and the prices are reasonable.

Cold Stream Farms has some really cheap trees. I get them there all the time.

Forest farm is my benchmark for quality unique trees.

Want a dozen generic redbuds and I start looking to Musser forests.

Does your state have a seedling program? Few years back I ordered a bunch of dogwoods from our DNR to practice grafting on.
