to one of New Hampshire's treasures. We exist under authority of RSA 227-H:2 to raise and sell seedlings to "…persons who desire to plant them". Our goal is to provide customers with the highest quality, bare-root seedlings for forestry, conservation and education purposes at attractive prices. We believe we have achieved that goal.
**Starting Monday April 18th the State Forest Nursery will be open for order pickups from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday; and from 8:00 to 12:00 pm on Saturday April 23rd, Saturday April 30th, and Saturday May 7th.**
THE SPRING 2022 CATALOGS ARE AVAILABLE. ORDERS ARE BEING ACCEPTED AND PROCESSED.
PLEASE NOTE: Long-time Program Assistant Robin Trombley will be retiring at close of business on December 30, 2021. Thank you Robin for processing all the Nursery orders by hand over the last 14 years! Colleen DeAngelis will be taking over for Robin, starting Monday, January 3, 2022. Please be patient and kind as Colleen learns the ropes and processes your orders.
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
- Hedgerows for wind and snow breaks
- Christmas tree growing stock
The New Hampshire State Forester Patrick Hackley 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 or locally if out of state.
