Crain Tree Farm and Nursery


We are plant people and take pleasure in sharing our knowledge with you to ensure

you will get the most enjoyment from your plants and landscapes.


Office hours: Mon. - Sat., 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.


We now have Buckeyes, Tree Lilacs, Non fertile Sweetgums, and Bloodgood Japanese Maples.




We are a family owned and operated establishment and take pride in growing quality nursery stock since 1980.

With multiple root pruning, minimal basket sizing and close attention to the root flare area, we feel you are obtaining the best tree stock in the area. All these steps lessen the shock of transplanting and help the tree to quickly establish in your yard.

We would like to invite you to come by and let us show you the difference in our trees and shrubs.

Trees were designed to live in a fungal environment. Make sure there's no grass around the trees, give them a 3 inch mulch layer and don't let the mulch touch the root flare.
