New Hampshire State Forest Nursery - Quality Seedlings Since 1910
About UsSeedling Survival TipsOnline ToursLinksOrderingContact Us

 

We offer more than 50 different bare-root seedling species and specialty packages of incomparable quality. We have a small program by most standards (see About Us) and that allows us to concentrate on product quality and customer service. Our experienced staff and seedling quality are unsurpassed. We do not import seedlings from out-of-state or transplant seedlings from other sources. All of our seedlings are grown from seed (see From Seed to Seedling) in our own seedbeds. This ensures that our seedlings are well adapted to New Hampshire climate, free of disease and insect pests. Our seedlings are useful for many purposes including:

  • Wildlife Food and Cover
  • Site Reclamation
  • Erosion Control Stream Bank and Wetland Plantings
  • Reforestation
  • Hedgerows for wind and snow breaks
  • Christmas tree growing stock

The New Hampshire State Forester Brad Simpkins says, "Since 1910, the New Hampshire State Forest Nursery has occupied an established role in contributing to the well being of the state's forests and forest economy. Planting trees and shrubs is an important stewardship activity for landowners who wish to improve our environment for future generations. Our State Forest Nursery is part of our heritage and an investment in our future."

Customers who need larger plants for landscaping purposes should contact one of the many excellent private nurseries in New Hampshire and locally.

NOTICE: 

As reported last year, we have experienced two open winters which has resulted in losses, particularly the true firs used primarily in the culture of Christmas trees.  We have experimented with different mulches and have found a promising fix to the problem of frost heaving. In fact, our 2year old beds have some of the best looking stock we have seen.  Unfortunately for our Christmas tree customers, it takes a minimum of 3 years to grow a field ready seedling, so one more year will be needed before our saleable numbers of firs will be at good levels again.  

Balsam, Fraser, Canaan, and Concolor fir will not be available this year in standalone sales.  We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused our growers.
