Since 1931, Minnesota's State Forest Nursery has provided over 1 billion healthy, native tree and shrub seedlings for Minnesota plantings. With over 85 years of experience, we have developed methods to achieve the best seedling stock possible.

Seedlings are kept in the ground long enough to develop robust root systems and healthy stems. Depending on species, coniferous seedlings are between 2–4 years of age, and deciduous seedlings are between 1–3 years of age when sold.

Every seedling is inspected to meet high standards for height, diameter, root development, and health. Only the best seedlings are sold.
