Remembering the blossoms of Spring!

We love the Natives. They are so much easier to care for once established.

We love it when trees bloom, they attract a different kind of wildlife.

The Golden Ball Lead tree can bloom multiple times with the rains!

Welcome
Oaks of the Wild West

It's summer and the heat is on!

Arizona and New Mexico monsoons should start soon and that means there is an upcoming opportunity to plant a native tree(s)!

At the Arizona tree nursery we have had several nice rain showers and the trees have shown their appreciation... The new crop of Oak Trees looks very healthy!

Don't forget to care for your newly planted trees by watering deeply and frequently.

The young Gamble Oaks are requiring more water in the heat of multiple 100 degree days. The young Escarpment Live Oaks are definitely Texas tough. The Mexican Blue Oaks are thriving in the heat!

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.

Great shade trees that make great fall color?

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 in Southeastern 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 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.
