Native Trees

Tubelings

American Native Plants stocks a wide selection of trees and shrubs grown as tubelings. Our woody seeds are planted and grown in Anderson Band Pots that measure 2.5” x 2.5” x 5” deep. Tubelings are sold individually or in flats of 36. Depending on the conditions of the planting site, trees and shrubs as tubelings can have a significantly higher survivability rate than bareroot plants thanks to their young and healthy root systems fully encased in the media that surrounded them since germination from seed. Tubelings are also very easy to transport and plant.

Containers #1, #2, #3, #5, and #7

Our native trees and native shrubs are available in containers for easy transport and planting convenience. Trees transported in containers that are removed upon planting have well-established root systems which will minimize transplant shock usually associated with bareroot plants. As a general rule of thumb, the bigger the container number, the larger the size of the tree or shrub. We offer native trees in containers #1, #2, #3, #5, and #7.

  • #1 pots, 6 1/2” diameter, 7” tall
  • #2 pots, 8 ¾” diameter, 8 ½” tall
  • #3 pots, 11” diameter, 9 5/8” tall
  • #5 pots, 10 ¾” diameter, 11” tall
  • #7 pots, 14” diameter, 11 ½” tall

The final volume and height of your container and tree is determined seasonally and by species.

Balled & Burlapped

We offer many 1” – 3” caliper native trees in balled-and-burlapped format. Balled-and-burlapped trees are field-grown, hand or machine-dug and then loaded on our truck for transport directly to your site or to our nursery for customer pick up.

Contract Grown

Whether you are looking for mature plants to fill out your landscaping job or need a large quantity of a specific native plant, we offer contract growing to our business clients throughout the year. This is the most effective way to insure availability of plants when you need them. Contact us for details.

Live Stakes

Certain species of native trees and shrubs are available as live stakes, fascines, or brush layers. These materials are typically used to stabilize streambanks or restore natural shorelines along with other various bioengineering techniques. These materials are cut to order when dormant and shipped immediately. We require at least 30 days of notice to harvest the live stakes for your project. When ordering, be sure to specify the species, quantity of stakes, diameter, and length required.

Suggested Substitutions

Our skilled staff can work with you to determine substitute native plants if any of the items on your plant list is unavailable in the size or quantity needed.
