NH State Forest Nursery

Native Species Package

This package contains bare root seedlings that are native to New Hampshire (present when European settlers arrived in the early 1600's). Some of these species became very important to early settlers, and continue to be popular today not only for their beauty, but for their use by songbirds and wildlife for food and cover. The package contains beach plum, American hazelnut, fragrant sumac, Virginia rose and gray dogwood.

Specialty packages are $30 each and consist of 25 assorted seedlings (5 plants of 5 species) color coded for easy identification. Each seedling will average at least 4 to 12" tall. Plant descriptions and planting suggestions are provided. These popular packages are suitable for planting statewide. Disclaimer: the majority of plants in these specialty packages are intended primarily for wildlife and songbird use. Some species may contain toxins harmful to humans if consumed.

Price: $30 per pkg.
