What’s New for 2014?

         * We stock several thousand hickory liners and saplings available in all seven species.  Mostly from locally collected seed, the plants are grown with intact straight taproots. See the special write-up on hickory growing techniques.

        * We now have availability on seed-grown, blight-resistant, American Chestnut seedlings from our grove of parent trees. Plants are 100% Castenea dentata, not hybrids.  Parent trees exhibit resistance to blight, but may develop enlarged burls. The parent trees are about fifteen years old and nearly forty feet tall.
  
        *  We now also started to carry three species of Aesclus (Buckeye). As well as Nyssa Ogeche (Ogeechee Tupelo), the southern Nyssa is prized by bee keepers for its pollen because of its great taste when produced into honey.
 
        * More  new hard-to-find species  are now available. Examples include Quercus prinoides (Dwarf Oak), Prunus depressa (Sand Cherry), Malus angustifolia (Southern  Crabapple), Amelanchier arborea (Tree Serviceberry), Quercus fusiformis (Texas Live Oak)Quercus michauxii (Swamp Chestnut Oak), Carya ovalis (Red Hickory), Magnolia macrophylla (Bigleaf Magnolia), Castenea pumila (Allegheny Chinkapin), Pices rubens (Red Spruce), Quercus muhlenbergii (Chinkapin Oak), Rhododendron calendulaceum (Flame Azala), and some unique natural hybrids.
 
        *  We have wholesale inventory availability for a number of in-demand species that are often in short supply, such as Sassafras albidum (Sassafras), Fagus grandifolia (American Beech), Tilia americana(Basswood) and Asimina triloba (Pawpaw).

 

   

    We now accept VISA & Mastercard credit cards, via phone, fax, mail or in person. Also due to
increased request for photos of our plants we have made a Facebook page, featuring some of our most popular native trees and shrubs. We will be adding more photos of rare species as time goes on. Please visit, like and friend us on our new Facebook page. www.facebook.com/pages/go-native-tree-farm

    Welcome to the fastest growing native plant nursery website for the mid-Atlantic region’s newest “growth trend”.  Along with our trees, we are growing!  We have added many new species and have increased our growing capacity. We love native plants here at Go Native Tree Farm. Preserving natives is great for many reasons. For example, less care is needed once established. Some species can grow 5' a year making a shade tree in little time, saving electric and offsetting hundreds of carbon emissions pounds.

We have updated our species list for the 2013 season, and we will be attending regional plant shows in the near future where you can talk to us and purchase native plants in person.  The species list can be found in the "Price List" link; check the "Events" link for details about upcoming shows. Please check back frequently for updates on new plants and events.

    Go Native Tree Farm is pleased to offer a superior selection of container-grown US eastern native plants for the wholesale and retail customer.  We are a family-operated small business located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  Lancaster County is widely known as the Garden Spot of Pennsylvania, and is famous for its well-kept farms and Amish tradition.  Many of the trees we grow are known locally as Amish farm trees, based on their regular appearance in the yards of local farms. 

Most of the trees we grow are started from local native seed sources. We collect these seeds our selves from plants with good health and seeds. A focus is on native fruit and nut trees, troubled and rare native species, and climax species found in the oak-hickory forest prevalent in the mid-Atlantic region.  It can require hundreds of years, if not longer, for nature to regenerate the varied mix of native climax forest trees once present on cleared land.  Through our business, it is now possible to immediately restore original forest species. 

We offer trees for a variety of applications:
We also offer advice on the best selection for your needs. We invite you to contact us, preferably by email, to receive a free recommendation for a native tree mix.  You will need to provide us with information on where you are interested in planting.  This should include location, hillside versus bottomland, direction of slope, soil type, and your desired results.

We invite you to visit the selection of our native nursery farm-grown trees listed on the product price list. We also invite you to contact us to locate any native eastern tree or size not listed, and we will locate it for you. We offer quantity discounts for wholesale and large order customers.
