Maximize Your Purchasing Power
What makes more sense:
Purchasing trees grown in California which have been sold by the grower to a wholesaler (and moved by truck), then sold to a nursery (and moved again), and then sold to a landscaper (with yet another truck ride); each step adding to the price of the tree and involving loading and unloading the tree; or
Buying directly from a grower, assuring fresh, local trees and the best prices. NurseryTrees.com of Snohomish is a tree farm, with many thousands of trees happily growing at our Snohomish County growing fields. For ornamental trees, you can come out in the Fall/Winter and pick your tree "in the ground"; we'll dig it and deliver and plant it for you (and if you are a landscaper or working with one, we have landscaper discounts so you'll still get a great price and healthy trees).
To Help Sell a Property
"I feel like we'd be living in a fishbowl."
"We like the house but don't like being so close to the street"
"The yard seems unfinished."
If your house is currently listed and you keep hearing statements like these, or you are getting ready to list your property and want to make the best first impression, planting some "Instant Privacy" Treestm or mature Ornamental Trees can make a lot of sense.

Privacy Trees: We are a nursery tree farm specializing in Privacy Trees for screening. We have several thousand privacy trees growing at our Snohomish farm. Plus we have many years' experience in "what works where", professional planting services, ongoing support, and thousands of satisfied customers. Buying directly from a grower has great advantages--fresh trees, great selection, and low prices--you maximize your purchasing power. For more information click here.
We also have privacy trees that are not available elsewhere, such as our "Hedged Privacy Trees". For many years we have been pruning some of our privacy trees into tall, narrow hedges so we now have "Instant Privacy" trees in a narrow, hedged form. Sometimes these "hedged" trees are the only trees that will fit into the planting space, and no one else in the Northwest has anything like them. You can see our hedged and natural privacy trees in our beautiful 8 minute YouTube Farm Video.
Ornamental Trees: We also have a nice selection of Ornamental Trees, with many of our trees being on the "Great Plant Picks" list for the Pacific Northwest.

Customer Satisfaction: Most important of all is what our customers think of us:
"I am really pleased with your work. You saved me several thousand dollars, steered me away from trees that wouldn't work, provided healthy and beautiful trees, did a great job planting them, and did everything on time and on schedule. You can quote me." Jo, Vashon Island
"Our privacy bank of trees has done nothing but grow well into maturity. Our back yard and deck area is totally private and the 10 trees your team planted [in 2005] are rich, leathery and dark green. We remark on them every day it seems. Please include me in any of your "Testimonials" as you would be hard pressed to find a more satisfied customer." Jim, Port Orchard
"For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape purchase I’ve ever made." Jeff, Seattle
"Michael, I just wanted to pass along a note to tell you how thrilled I am with the trees. The effect they have brought to our new courtyard in the front of our home here in Seattle has exceeded my expectations!" Chip Hanauer, Hydroplane Driver--Click Here to see his project.
"I work in customer service so I know good service when I experience it and you have my top rating. I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs new landscaping. Thanks again.” Carol, Camano Island
"The [new] trees were a great privacy feature when we sold the last house! We now have a much larger space we want to talk with you about . . " Katherine, Fall City
“My compliments to your crew. We’ve had a lot of contractors working on our house recently and we’ve seen the entire range; and your guys were excellent. The trees make things look so much better—I started smiling as soon as I saw them going in." Holly, Queen Anne
"You guys are the best nursery I've ever done business with! And I have dealt with a few. You did what you said you would, on time with attention to detail rarely found. From the beginning of the quote process all the way through to the last detail you made it easy. And you work to ensure that the trees will thrive after planting with detailed advice, a complementary irrigation system, and a website filled with useful information. Most nurseries will just dump off the goods and tell you best of luck, put some water on them. You provide a quality product that sets you apart. Your crew was friendly, polite and operated as a well organized team. I would recommend you without hesitation! Thanks for doing a great job!” Ryan, Buckley
"We can not believe how beautiful your trees are. The privacy is unbelievable. If you ever need a testimonial let us know. Our yard is perfect! We sit there and say "my oh my”! Suzanne, Tacoma
"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've purchased." Sarah, Sammamish
